ATP, EPIC partnership for maintenance tracking
Software developer ATP and aircraft manufacturer Epic Aircraft have formed a partnership for maintenance tracking and technical publication distribution. Epic will utilize ATP’s Flightdocs for maintenance tracking and electronic logbooks across its fleet of E1000 GX aircraft; and will also leverage the ATP Aviation Hub to distribute technical publications, including maintenance manuals, wiring diagrams and IPCs.
“Our commitment to our operators includes ensuring that we have partnerships in place that enhance the customer experience and ensure maximum operational efficiencies, reliability and value,” said Doug King, CEO, Epic.
The E1000 GX, powered by the Pratt & Whitney 1200-HP PT6A-67A engine and the Hartzell 5-blade composite propeller, cruises at more than 330 knots, climbs at 4,000 feet per minute, offers a full-fuel payload of 1,100 pounds. It is rated to operate at up to 34,000 feet and, according to Epic, can travel coast to coast with one fuel stop.
The E1000 GX is equipped with the Garmin GFC 700 Automated Flight Control System. All E1000 GXaircraft will now come with subscriptions to the fully integrated Flightdocs and the ATP Aviation Hub platforms.
“Our product suite delivers a unique set of capabilities to aircraft owners, operators, and OEMs,” said Greg Heine, Chief Strategy Officer, ATP. “We’re giving real-time, paperless access to the data and publications they need every day, right from their phone or iPad.”
Epic explains this new integration with ATP will give users one-click access to their Epic Aircraft technical publications and regulatory content without needing to leave a maintenance tracking platform. The ATP Aviation Hub also provides Pratt & Whitney engine and Hartzell Propeller content as part of its aircraft library.
