SmartLynx Airlines moves further toward Full Paperless Operations
SmartLynx Airlines is pleased to announce that it has obtained Latvian and Estonian CAA approval for eTechLog8 as provided by Conduce Group Limited to totally replace its current paper based aircraft technical log procedure with this fully electronic solution.
The eTechLog8 application uses the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 hardware and eliminates the paper technical log. eTechLog8 is an aircraft centric solution that contains all the required functionality on the device so that is can be routinely used offline when required.
SmartLynx have adopted a single instance of eTechLog8 to fully manage their multi AOC fleet of aircraft. This ensures that common company processes and procedures can be adopted for both AOCs.
eTechLog8 has also been integrated with SmartLynx’s CAMO system, Commsoft OASES, giving real time data availability and reduced administration costs by updating the aircraft records automatically whilst at the same time significantly reducing errors and delays that may occur with manual data entry.
Paul Boyd, Managing Director, Conduce Group – “The project team at SmartLynx have achieved a significant breakthrough in the adoption of eTechLog8 with its multi-AOC and multi-NAA approval for their continued paperless operations in the cockpit and on the ground.”
Olga Arbatska, Engineering Manager, SmartLynx – “Following extensive market evaluation and the completion of the flight trials of eTechLog8 we are convinced that the live integrated eTechLog8 application will significantly improve our CAMO activities by giving real time updates on WO completion and defect opening and closing. Having access to real time aircraft status information will allow us to be more proactive in managing fleet airworthiness, reducing errors and unscheduled aircraft downtime. The eTechLog8 is a great addition to our Electronic Flight Bag which has been in operation for over two years.”About Conduce Group Limited

Conduce is pleased to announce that its eTechLog8 software, along with the associated suite of companion applications, have been chosen by Etihad Regional, operated by Darwin Airline of Lugano, Switzerland.
Etihad Regional have selected the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 as the cockpit device for eTechLog8 and the integrated eCabinLog8 application will also utilise the FZ-G1 devices. The project will fully eliminate the paper Technical Log, Deferred Defect Log and Cabin Defect Log when fully adopted. The solution is a Windows 8.1/10 IoT native application, allowing it to be routinely used offline and only requiring an internet connection to transmit data when appropriate. A fully functioning web application back end (eCentral8) is used to configure the system and monitor/manage all line maintenance activities for the fleet. eTechLog8 has been built around SPEC 2000 and complies with the regulatory requirements as presented in EASA AMC 20-25 and FAA AC120-76C. Adoption of the eTechLog8 solution brings many benefits to the airline including significantly increased data accuracy, more immediate access to the data across the business, and integration of data with the airline back office ERP systems.
Paul Boyd, Managing Director – Conduce, stated that “The selection of eTechLog8 by Etihad Regional shows how comprehensive the solution is in meeting the requirements of the various regulatory authorities. Conduce provide a full turnkey solution to the customer as well as providing total 24/7 first line product support to the airline.”
