Vision Aircraft Records: The Gold Standard for Aircraft Digital Logbooks
Since 2016, the Vision Company’s Secured Managed Aircraft Records Technology (S.M.A.R.T) has been the Aviation Industry’s most trusted Aircraft Digital Logbook platform. Securing and managing close to $2 Billion in aircraft logbook value, Vision is meeting one of the greatest challenges in the aviation industry today . . . The conversion of over 100 years of “paper based” aircraft maintenance records into aircraft digital logbooks (ADLs).
Focused on user-centric design and robust security, Vision Aircraft Records enables aviation companies to manage their maintenance records efficiently and effectively.
“Working with Vision has been great. We had an aircraft in pre-buy, and they traveled on site to onboard the aircraft during the pre-purchase inspection. This allowed us to start the conformity process before the aircraft arrived on site and have it 95% complete when it did arrive.”
Josh Rowe, Managed Fleet Director of Maintenance
“We are honored to work with Pentastar Aviation, an esteemed name in business aviation. This collaboration is a testament to our mutual goal of advancing the aviation industry through technological innovation. We are excited to contribute to Pentastar’s ongoing success and excellence,”
