The need for maintenance crews to access flight logs quickly and easily
Yes that's my Challenge

With world-class connectivity and durability, Toughbooks enable maintenance crews to access flight logs in previously unachievable times – often even before the flight has landed. So they’re ready with the information they need to react to every situation, drastically cutting turnaround times and saving aviation companies huge amounts of money.

The provision of access to technical manuals and specific revisions in any weather conditions
Yes that's my Challenge

Previously, technical manuals and specific revisions were generally paper-based. Even if not, the limitations of technology meant that access to digitally held technical information wasn’t always available where the aircraft were located. Simple things such as wireless connectivity, low temperature or bright sunlight would prevent documents being accessed.

The need for faster sign-offs and approvals before departure
Yes that's my Challenge

Turnaround times are critical to the aviation industry. Standing aircraft mean lost revenue. But with a Toughbook, sign-offs, checks and approvals can be carried out in an instant, thanks to their ability to perform at the point of service, their easy-to-use form factors and consolidated functionality, and their connectivity in the most challenging situations.
