Boeing has confirmed the completion of transitioning Air New Zealand’s (ANZ) fleet of six 787 aircraft from paper logbooks to electronic records.
The OEM said the move to paperless record management will help the carrier improve operational efficiency and reliability.
Boeing’s electronic logbook runs on the aircraft’s Electronic Flight Bag and onboard server to collect flight data to share with technicians and maintenance systems on the ground.
David Morgan, ANZ’s chief flight operations and safety officer, said: “Advances in digital technology, such as the ELB, provide a more data-driven predictive maintenance process.
"With this capability we can proactively troubleshoot and quickly solve maintenance items, further driving improvements in reliability and on-time performance.”
