Kalitta Air and TrustFlight announced that TrustFlight will provide its innovative electronic tech log, reliability analytics and fleet oversight tools for Kalitta Air’s fleet of twenty-nine (29) aircraft and subsequent additions to its fleet.
Air cargo operators such as Kalitta Air use tech logs to record airframe usage and discrepancies for internal and regulatory oversight. As a global standard operating procedure, a log is completed for every flight operation by civilian and military aircraft operators. While most air freight carriers currently utilize paper-based reporting systems, Kalitta Air will deploy TrustFlight’s digital tech log solution. In addition, Kalitta Air will implement TrustFlight’s reliability analytics and fleet oversight tools to gain a real-time analysis of their fleet to optimize maintenance activities.
“Implementing electronic logs enables us to benefit from increased operational efficiencies and maintain our reputation for reliable on-time performance worldwide,” said Christopher Barks, director of quality control & chief inspector for Kalitta Air. “TrustFlight impressed us with the capability and ease of use of their systems alongside their knowledge of maintenance processes.”
Karl Steeves, director of TrustFlight said, “Kalitta Air is a pioneer in air cargo, globally recognized for its long history of success and operational acumen. They are well-positioned to transition to all- digital tech log record keeping. We’re proud that they have entrusted TrustFlight for this task.”
