ICAO Adopts Standards For Electronic Recordkeeping

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is exploring new ways to simplify the airline business. Its Paperless Aircraft Operations (PAO) initiative faces the daunting task of rethinking the way companies document maintenance activity.

“The PAO seeks to transform legacy processes into modern, digital processes,” says IATA’s head of operational cost management, Chris Markou. “These programs encourage industry to learn from experience and rethink the way we operate”.

The international organization plans to adopt the language officially in a revision to the Airworthiness Manual (Doc 9760) later this year. That revised manual will support new electronic aircraft maintenance record provisions in Annexes 6 and 8 and is expected to take effect in 2020.
