Gogo has announced a partnership with Ultramain Systems (Ultramain), a developer of airline operational software, to enable Ultramain's applications to remain connected to aircraft in real-time.
Ultramain applications that can be used on-board as a result of Gogo’s in-flight connectivity solutions include efbTechLogs, which allows flight crews to transmit accurate data about problems on the aircraft; eReporting, an integrated flight crew reporting software that replaces paper Air Safety Reports; and eCabin, which provides passenger information including any special requirements throughout the journey.
“Aircraft maintenance reporting functions are traditionally accomplished using paper log books and analysed by ground crews between take-offs and landings," saidAndrew Kemmetmueller, Gogo's vice president of product for connected aircraft services. “Ultramain's applications modernise this manual process into a digital one by building these applications into pilots' electronic flight bags, maintenance technicians' mobile devices and airlines' back-office systems. Ultimately, this partnership can help improve airline efficiencies and reduce maintenance related delays and cancellations, creating a better passenger experience.”
