NVable Announces Live Operation of Converge Electronic Techlog with CobaltAir

NVable announced today that CobaltAir Limited is now using the it’s Converge Electronic Techlog in live operations across the airline.

The Converge Electronic Techlog and integrated Damage Reporting, configured to CobaltAir processes, was approved by the Department of Civil Aviation in Cyprus for live operations from the beginning of February 2017.

“With the use of the ETL, we have substantial improvements in quality and efficiency. Through the digitalisation of the data we secure the transfer of error free readings on the current overall real time status of the aircraft, including all maintenance and crew activity. After only a short period from the start date using the ETL live, not a single employee wants to go back to the paper process.” George Vasilou, Maintenance Manager of Cobalt.

 

“It has been a pleasure to work with George and the team at Cobalt in preparation for introducing our Converge service. I would not be surprised if this had been the fastest successful implementation of an electronic techlog solution in the world. The success is a credit to the tremendous focus and effort of George working with the NVable team. This is another confirmation of the industry leading capability of our solution.” Cameron Hood, CEO of NVable.

Cobalt is a new Cypriot airline, flag carrier for the Republic of Cyprus with its principal place of business in Larnaca, Cyprus.  The airline launched operations in July 2016 serving a network across the UK, Ireland, Greece and Continental Europe.  Cobalt expansion plans into 2017 are to increase its fleet to 6 aircraft and its network into more cities in the UK and Europe.  Moreover, will add new destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Asia to promote Larnaca International airport as a hub.

NVable is an independent software consultancy with customer satisfaction as the primary goal. The team has consistently delivered solutions where others have failed. In 2012 the aviation solutions were introduced with the Electronic Techlog as a key element. The team was involved in creating the first Electronic Techlog in the world and are experts in the field.

NVable Awarded Contract from Cobalt

NVable has been awarded a contract by Cobalt to install and support it’s Converge Electronic Techlog across the airline.

Under the contract, NVable will customise the Electronic Techlog to Cobalt processes, and support the introduction and in-service operations onto the growing fleet of aircraft. As part of the service the integrated visual damage report functionality will also be introduced.

“As Cobalt’s Maintenance Manager and member of the technical team, I feel privileged to lead this project. I have always been excited and interested in new technology, and ETL (Electronic Tech Log) will definitely be a challenge and real pleasure to work with at the same time. I am looking forward to work with NVABLE developing the initial version of Cobalt’s ETL, until the final part when we go live and convert to a new digitized ETL system.” George Vasilou, Maintenance Manager of Cobalt.

 

“We developed Converge for Aviation to help airlines manage daily aircraft maintenance activities by making it easy to collect data, monitor the status of the fleet and intervene early if required. We feel privileged that Converge Electronic Techlog is part of Cobalt’s plan for rapid growth and we are looking forward to supporting them and playing a part of their success.” Cameron Hood, CEO of NVable.

Aircraft IT Article (Part 2)

Second part of the article for Aircraft IT Operations about real life lessons learned in digitising the aircraft technical log is here. If it raises any questions please get in touch.

Aircraft IT Article (Part 1)

I’m delighted that Dave Cooper, Rob Woods and myself have had the opportunity to contribute a two part article for Aircraft IT Operations. The first part is here with the second part coming soon.

Digitising the Aircraft Technical Log

For a while Dave Cooper (British Airways Cityflyer), Rob Woods (Air Arabia) and I have considered putting together some of the lessons we have learned about electronic techlogs over the years. There remains a lot of apprehension about making that change despite the benefits and there is often uncertainty about how to approach introducing the change. With that in mind, we thought that combining the airline experience both Rob and Dave have in implementing techlog solutions with my experience of developing those solutions might provide the community with some useful information.

And the result is the PDF you can download from our Resources section on the website. I stress that the document is not a sales pitch – it does not talk about NVable’s solution (although I am more than happy to help you with that!). It is meant as an unbiased view of what we believe are the most important factors to be considered in moving from a paper techlog to an electronic one. These, of course, are our views – you may agree or disagree, but the intention is to share knowledge.

Introducing CoNVerge

Along with our new website, we are replacing our Appixo brand with a new one: CoNVerge. Not only does it sit better with our company branding but we also think it explains more clearly what the service is about.

A hub where streams of data converge to simplify and improve processes.

We have CoNVerge Aviation and now CoNVerge Nautical. The latter is some exciting work we are doing in conjunction with ID2. We hope you like the change!
