New from Bluetail is RecordSnap, which allows aviation maintenance technicians to use their smartphone’s camera to scan, upload, and automatically store records in real time.
RecordSnap also converts the photos to a searchable PDF directly from the mechanic’s Apple or Android phone, according to officials with the Phoenix-based company.
“The idea behind Bluetail’s aircraft records digitization and cloud-storage capabilities is to save time on aircraft maintenance paperwork,” said Greg Baynham, Bluetail’s Vice President of Applications and Delivery. “This new capability is the next step in that process. Now, instead of taking the maintenance records to a scanner and then sending those files to us, the A&P or any maintenance stakeholder can take a photo of the entry with their smartphone and immediately upload it to their secure Bluetail account.”
“While this capability certainly saves time when the aircraft is undergoing maintenance or repairs at its normal facility, its benefits are even more evident when performing maintenance in an AOG scenario,” he added. “Since the digitized file is uploaded immediately, there is no chance of losing the information in transit. Once it’s in the Bluetail cloud, it’s totally secure, searchable, and shareable with anyone.”
