How MACH Search smashes the data barrier with aircraft logbooks
Mach is fast – MACH Search is easy and fast.
When Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic in 1927, very few people asked how far he flew (3,600 miles). Everyone wanted to know how long the trip took? For the, record it was 33.5-hours. From that day forward, aviation became obsessed with time. How fast can an airplane get me there?
And that obsession really took off on October 14, 1947, when Chuck Yeager became the first person to break the sound barrier (Mach 1), traveling at over 662 miles per hour. Since then, Mach is the Holy Grail of aircraft speed. Even the airspeed indicators in high-performance jets are called Machmeters. Mach means fast!
So, it just stands to reason that when Bluetail celebrated its first anniversary – which by the way, coincides with Lucky Lindy’s trip – with the introduction of the aviation industry’s newest and most powerful digital records search and automation tool, it appropriately named that revolutionary new capability: MACH Search.
Based on the most advanced optical character recognition (OCR), machine-learning capabilities, Bluetail’s enterprise-level MACH Search has turned aviation record-keeping – historically one of the slowest and most labor-intensive parts of operating and maintaining an airplane – into something that can be done in mere seconds.
It can search through reams of digitized aircraft logs and records – literally, tens-of-thousands of individual records and entries – in less time than it took you to read this sentence.
Bluetail’s MACH Search isn’t just fast; it does things that other systems just can’t do. For example, it can read your handwriting – and, it takes that to another level by searching out and identifying a logbook entry by the technician’s signature.
And because everything connected to owning, operating, and maintaining a business and general aviation aircraft (B&GA) has to be accomplished as quickly, efficiently, and accurately as possible, every minute you save on paperwork, is a plus to the bottom-line.
“I’d say that when it comes to aircraft record-keeping, MACH Search is as important to the modernization of aircraft operational records and documents as the turbine engine has been to aircraft propulsion,” stated Stuart Illian, Bluetail co-founder. “Sure, Lindbergh’s nine-cylinder Wright J-5C Whirlwind radial engine got him across the Atlantic, but a FADEC-equipped turbine engine would have done it a lot faster and easier.”
