What Is Aircraft Maintenance Software?

Aviation maintenance software tracks and simplifies the constant maintenance, repair and overhaul (aviation MRO) operations associated with the aviation industry. It performs a number of essential functions, such as:

  • Monitoring inventory
  • Supporting preventive and essential maintenance and repairs
  • Scheduling work orders
  • Tracking and documenting compliance

Overall, aviation maintenance tracking software (or MRO software) helps organizations maximize their efficiency, letting them focus on their jobs and keep their facilities and aircraft running smoothly and safely.

Common Features of Aircraft Maintenance Software

Common functions of aviation management software include:

Inventory control and processing Track the status and usage of rotables and consumables across multiple locations and currencies, allowing for exchanges and inter-base transfers to reduce waste and over- or under-storage, maximizing inventory usage and lifecycles.
Preventive maintenance scheduling and forecasting Since preventive schedules are predefined based on the aircraft, many aviation MRO solutions define that schedule for you, simplifying the entire process. In addition, smart systems can identify common problems based on history, cycle counters, RINs and physical/electronic symptoms such as vibration, noise, output etc., alerting you to potential hazards before they become urgent.
Work order and scheduling Operators need a simple way of bringing needs to the attention of personnel, who need to prioritize requests, schedule tasks and initiate and close work orders as simply as possible.
Cost accounting An advanced reporting feature of aircraft management software—cost accounting—enables you to track the costs of all repairs, allowing you to monitor common problems, replace high cost aircraft etc.
Compliance In one of the world’s most tightly regulated industries, an effective aviation management solution should monitor compliance issues. This includes tracking inspections, component failures, Airworthiness Directives, Service Bulletins etc., always maintaining appropriate documentation and flagging any potential compliance concerns.

In addition to the above, many companies offer full-suite aviation management software solutions that move beyond the realm of maintenance into other departments within the aircraft operation industry. These aircraft maintenance systems will incorporate some or all of the following features or functionality:

Aviation operations management Maintain complete control over your fleet, tracking purchases and sales, production, flight paths, operations, hours, fuel usage, reliability, loans/rentals, warranties etc.
Customer and vendor management From single charter aircraft operators all the way up to billion-dollar airlines, maintaining customer information for effective communication, pricing and sales strategies is a key element of success.
Billing and accounting Whether you’re billing a few customers at thousands of dollars apiece or millions of customers at hundreds of dollars apiece, accounting is a crucial function. On the expense side, this will integrate seamlessly with your inventory control and fleet management capabilities.
