Avtrak Announces System Enhancements Addressing Low Cycle Fatigue Requirements

Maintenance Tracking Provider Adds Helicopter-Specific Features

Maintenance tracking program provider Avtrak says it has added new system features exclusively for the helicopter industry to address low cycle fatigue concerns and the new OEM requirements associated with these issues. 

Avtrak developed the new features based on demand from their existing customers, many of whom use helicopters for off-shore, law enforcement and medical operations.  As a result of the low cycle fatigue issues discovered in recent years, helicopter manufacturers reacted by implementing new tracking requirements that involve complex formulas to account for flight cycles occurring without an engine shut-down.  While the move was necessary to avoid unplanned engine and rotor failures, the new requirements and formulas were complex and made maintenance tracking difficult for helicopter operators.

Avtrak’s GlobalNet system now has the capability to calculate “alternate cycle tracking” data using customized flight log interfaces.  The system incorporates formulas unique for each make and model of helicopter and are kept up-to-date through Avtrak’s propriety algorithms and master data sheets used within the system.  Avtrak released the new system to several key customers earlier this year and is now offering the new system to the entire helicopter market.

“We strive to stay in touch with our customers and understand their needs,” said Joe Hertzler, CEO and Co-Founder of Avtrak. “This is a perfect example of how we listen to our customers and develop solutions for their specific needs.”

"Aircraft maintenance and maintaining compliance in the helicopter business is very different than the fixed-wing market," added Mike Keeling, Avtrak’s Denver Area Manager. "These challenges are unique to the helicopter world and we are fortunate at Avtrak to have seasoned professionals who understand the needs of our helicopter customers. We strive to stay ahead of regulatory and OEM changes in this industry in an effort to provide our customers with the very best maintenance compliance services.”
