Flatirons Extends Leadership in Airline Maintenance Publishing with Growing Support for S1000D Fleets


Flatirons Solutions® is proud to announce that it is the
first provider of an OEM-independent solution for management of S1000D
maintenance data for the Airbus A220 series of aircraft (formerly the
Bombardier C Series). With support of the Airbus A220, the CORENA Fleet
solution by Flatirons now provides coverage for virtually all new
generation Airbus and Boeing fleets in service, including the Airbus
A350 and the Boeing 787, which is currently being implemented for
several customers.

Single system coverage of mixed Airbus and Boeing aircraft fleets
provided by the CORENA Fleet solution is a critical driver of
maintenance efficiency for airline operators, providing productivity
gains of up to 15-20% for maintenance engineers. By providing a mobile
source for information on all airframes, engines, and components being
serviced – regardless of their manufacturer – the CORENA Fleet solution
helps reduce repair times and improve aircraft utilization.

Flatirons has long been at the forefront of S1000D in commercial
aviation, with a production presence in S1000D-powered airline
maintenance since 2005. With the recent announcement by Airbus of their
intention to migrate mature fleets like the Airbus A320, A330, A340, and
A380 from the iSpec 2200 specification to S1000D in coming years, CORENA
Fleet adopters will be well-positioned to manage this transition

Flatirons recently published a white paper titled "S1000D: Airlines
Reach a Tipping Point" which highlights the challenges and opportunities
posed by the wide scale adoption of S1000D by airlines. The white paper
provides guidelines on tapping the power of S1000D for greater content
interactivity and relevance, as well as for mitigating the change
management and content autonomy risks posed by this transition.

implications for airlines, or to learn more about the CORENA Fleet
