Boeing will use Electronic Logbook

Boeing electronic logbook will be used for the first time, on Air New Zealand 787 Dreamliner fleet.

Boeing just announced the full integration of its Electronic Logbook (ELB) within Air New Zealand‘s 787 Dreamliner fleet, replacing paper logbooks with electronic records that improve operational efficiency and reliability.

The Electronic Logbook runs on the airplane’s Electronic Flight Bag and onboard server system to collect airplane flight data and crew-observed fault input, sharing that information with technicians and maintenance systems on the ground while the airplane is still en route.

Captain David Morgan, Air New Zealand Chief Flight Operations and Safety Officer, said:

“Advances in digital technology, such as the ELB, provide a more data-driven predictive maintenance process. With this capability we can proactively troubleshoot and quickly solve maintenance items, further driving improvements in reliability and on-time performance—which is great news for our customers.”

Per Norén, vice president, Digital Solutions, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, said:

“We are proud to support Air New Zealand – a leader in aviation and the use of innovative digital solutions – with our industry-leading technologies. The Electronic Logbook is a powerful and information-rich capability that drives efficiency and compliance.”
