Vistara, a full-service carrier operating in India, will become the first Indian airline to introduce an e-tech logbook solution and go paperless in its operations, by appointing ULTRAMAIN ELB. ULTRAMAIN ELB will fully replace aircraft paper technical log, cabin log, journey log, damage log, and fueling log, providing a validated electronic Certificate of Release to Service (e-CRS) on flights operated by Vistara.
Currently in the airborne proving stage, the ELB application will be used by Flight Crew, Cabin Crew, and Engineers on iOS devices to provide integrated workflows with Vistara’s maintenance and operational systems. The airline is seeking necessary approvals from relevant authorities before fully integrating this solution across its operations. Once implemented, ULTRAMAIN ELB will enable accurate, real-time global operational visibility of the Vistara fleet resulting in more efficient maintenance, higher dispatch reliability, and increased aircraft utilization.
“As Vistara marches on its Digital Transformational journey, the focus on digital data capture, integration and automation will continue. ULTRAMAIN ELB will help digitize our aircraft paper logs and improve operational effectiveness.” said Vinod Bhat, Chief Information Officer, Vistara.
“We are pleased to welcome Vistara to the ULTRAMAIN ELB family. As well as our well proven defect management functions. Vistara will be using ELB’s refuel / defuel functions, which enable real time capture of refueling documentation using Ultramain’s e-Signature capabilities. This is another important step towards the automation of Line Maintenance Operations” said Mark McCausland – President and CEO of Ultramain Systems.
