Aviation Industry Awards

Arconics shortlisted for the Aviation Innovation Award

Arconics are delighted to be shortlisted for the Irish Aviation Authority Aviation Industry Awards 2015 in the category of Aviation Innovation for its AeroDocs EFB content management product.

Arconics set about extending its AeroDocs product as a solution for flight crews to becoming one key element of a complete nose-to-tail e-Enablement platform, on which several mobile applications could be installed – for flight crews, cabin crews, passengers, engineers and airline management and administrative staff.

The first customer of the expanded platform was Aer Lingus, an airline with a long tradition of IT innovation.

With results such as lower costs, reduced timescales, reduced workload, improved audit compliance and better staff awareness, both Aer Lingus and Arconics consider the project a great success given the high level of acceptance from flight crews within Aer Lingus.

Further, the regulator has allowed Aer Lingus to remove paper copies of manuals from the aircraft, saving some 35-40kg per aircraft, per flight –a significant weight and hence cost saving for the airline.

Such was the success of the platform, in 2014 it was purchased by Cathay Pacific Airways, the flag carrier of Hong Kong.

Arconics will also announce another customer for the platform in June 2015 – a top-tier and one of the fastest growing airlines in the world with some of the newest aircraft flying today.
