CHC Helicopterís H175 to Become First Delivered with New Digital Logcards

CHC Helicopterís newest H175 will become the first Airbus helicopter to be delivered with digital logcards.

CHC currently operates H175s in the North Sea, one in Norwich, England and three in Aberdeen, Scotland.

ďA logcard is a document that tracks the entire history of critical helicopter parts, from manufacture all along their in-service lives. There are around 2.5 million logcards already in circulation throughout the world today, with some 80,000 new ones being produced each year,Ē said Matthieu Louvot, Executive Vice President of Customer Support & Services at Airbus Helicopters. ďOver time the paper logcard ages, gets misplaced, becomes hard to read and more difficult to use. Our new digital version stores the content in a secured cloud while preserving the existing template, using the same process and stakeholder roles and responsibilities as the paper version, meaning no additional workload.Ē

New functionalities not possible with paper logcards include the ability to attach documents, archive, search, and immediately transfer a selection of logcards. Future applications include the ability to synchronise data between the digital logcard system and customersí Maintenance Information Systems (MIS), or to build new analytics around the collected data.

ďThe digital logcards allow us to take better care of ourselves and our customers,Ē said Sean Toth, Director of Global Maintenance and Engineering at CHC Helicopter, which took delivery of its fourth H175 in January and will convert its paper logcards to the electronic format in April. ďThanks to them we can better ensure overall compliance, while our staff improves productivity as our logcards are updated in real time.Ē

Rolling out progressively worldwide from April 2019, all customers taking delivery of a new civil helicopter can opt to receive digital logcards at no additional cost. Customers with existing paper logcards can opt to convert theirs to the digital format. Digital logcards can also be tracked online via Airbusí Keycopter customer portal.
