Sikorsky Improves Distribution On Civil Helicopter Operator Technical Documents

By Bill Goldston

October 13, 2011 - Sikorsky Aerospace Services announced that it signed an agreement with Aircraft Technical Publishers (ATP) to collaborate on an advanced technical documentation distribution solution supporting operators of Sikorsky civil helicopters worldwide. SAS is the aftermarket business of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. 

The technical documentation distribution solution developed from this collaboration includes ATP?s patented NavigatorV desktop platform with automated revision updates. The platform is expected to provide those SAS customers subscribing to SAS?s commercial publications services with improved productivity, enhanced information currency, and patented search and indexing tools for faster and more complete library searches. 

SAS commercial publications customers will receive access to a maintenance and regulatory library, including Airworthiness Directives (AD) and Service Bulletins (SB) for each Sikorsky civil helicopter model selected. 

SAS customers subscribing to the commercial publications service will receive an email notification whenever an AD, SB, or Temporary Revision is available for the Sikorsky civil helicopter models selected. The content for each selected Sikorsky civil helicopter model will be updated twice a week over the internet through ATP?s EZ Update feature. 

The ATP agreement aligns with our objective to deliver accurate and timely technical data that enables our customers to more safely operate, maintain and modify their aircraft, maximizing readiness while minimizing lifecycle cost,? said James Heun, General Manager of SAS Maintenance Planning and Publications.
