Magnetic MRO has moved to digitalise its paper-based aircraft maintenance work orders, as well as introducing biometric e-signatures for aviation mechanics and other certifying staff.
“Paper documents made their job back in those days when there was no other reliable alternative for keeping track of aircraft maintenance works. But today, highly secure digital storage systems provide an unprecedented level of reliability and security against manipulations or unauthorised edits,” commented Jan Kotka, COO of Magnetic MRO.
“With this in mind, we’ve made yet another important step towards a paperless environment by digitalising aircraft maintenance work orders and securing them with fingerprint signatures. The new system has already received an approval from Estonian CAA.”
“Biometric e-signature and digital storage bring document management to a new level of transparency and security. Further on, the new system eliminates an unnecessary and time-consuming process of delivering work orders from the engineering department to maintenance shops and vice versa. What is particularly delighting, our clients will also benefit from the system, since all aircraft-related documents will now be available even faster,” added Sergei Shkolnik, Magnetic MRO’s base maintenance director.
