FCA becomes dentCHECK-as-a-Service™ provider for Australia & NZ
8tree’s dentCHECK-as-a-Service program grows with the addition of Flying Colours Aviation as an 8tree Certified Service Partner. dentCHECK-as-a-Service delivers on-demand airframe spot-checks and nose-to-tail mapping for lease transitions and catastrophic hail damage scenarios.
Over the past year, 8tree's dentCHECK-as-a-Service (daaS) business has digitally mapped and reported over 10,000 dents across a dozen commercial aircraft. In response to growing market demand for such services, 8tree is building a global network of service partners, while also scaling 8tree’s internal services team. Flying Colours Aviation (FCA) is the latest industry expert to join 8tree’s service network.
Starting September 2023, Flying Colours Aviation becomes an 8tree Certified Service Partner offering dentCHECK-powered on-demand airframe inspection service in Australia and New Zealand.
“We are always staying at the forefront of innovation to support our operations, dedicated to enhancing the quality of services offered to our customers. 8tree’s dentCHECK is a veritable ‘game changer’ within the industry and a transformative addition to FCA’s toolkit. The integration of advanced technology in a practical and highly efficient manner is exemplified by dentCHECK”, said Lloyd Armstrong, Project Manager at Flying Colours Aviation.
“The speed, precision, and effortless acquisition of measurements enabled by dentCHECK, is set to revolutionize the way FCA manages and records exterior damage for airlines and operators. Traditionally, obtaining these data would take an order of magnitude longer.”
“Flying Colours Aviation’s technical understanding of the airframe and their established reputation with aviation operators in Australia and New Zealand made them an obvious choice for us”, said Arun Chhabra, CEO at 8tree. “We are delighted to have them join 8tree’s global service network. The combination of Flying Colours Aviation and 8tree’s 3D dent-mapping service is certain to empower customers in the region with accelerated turn-around-times and digitalized damage-records.”
The dentCHECK platform is the world's only handheld-portable, completely wireless 3D scanner tool with integrated AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry and recognized by all major aerospace OEMs. It can also be found integrated into drones and robotic automation cells. Leading Airlines & MROs across the Commercial, Military, Cargo and Business aviation sectors use 8tree's dentCHECK tool and 8tree's dentCHECK-as-a-service for mapping aircraft damage and creating detailed SRM-compliant digital damage reports.
With integrated AR, dentCHECK empowers the aircraft technician with instant, actionable measurements for critical airframe damage while boosting consistency (18x), accuracy (20x), efficiency (90% time-savings) and eliminating human-subjectivity, compared to traditional manual inspection methods. dentCHECK delivers precision measurements ‘as simple as taking a photo’, and enhances safety through an improved understanding of airframe reliability.
