P2 Aviation Technology is set to release its software Version 2.5 for its TimeTrac Maintenance Tracking System.
Highlighting the list of enhancements is the addition of the Import/Export feature, according to company officials, who explain this allows for easy sharing of data between computers.
“Now you don’t have to be a computer expert to share data files between PCs,” says Steve Petrich, president of P2 Aviation Technology. “We realize that many of us are not real computer savvy, so we went out of our way to make this operation as simple and intuitive as possible.”
The Import/Export feature is particularly useful where an aircraft is not based near its maintenance facility, he said. For example, a maintenance shop has a customer with a TimeTrac-equipped aircraft that is located miles away and only returns once a year for an annual inspection. The new software allows the flight leg data to be downloaded from the aircraft onto a laptop computer and then sent via an email attachment back to the shop. With the click of a button, the maintenance technician is able to quickly import the data into their TimeTrac software. The shop then has an updated status of the aircraft without physically having it on their property.
The release of the software is scheduled for mid-November, at which time all new orders will be shipped with the new V2.5 software. Current TimeTrac customers can upgrade to the new software, free of charge, by going to the P2 website.
