Asset Records

New regional airline, Connect Airlines,  has chosen Asset Records® from GE Digital to streamline the management of maintenance work orders and help achieve a smarter, near paperless operation within its first year of operation. Connect Airlines will be the first airline operator to use unique QR code technology to speed adoption and connection to other tools and platforms within its operations while indexing and tracking thousands of parts per aircraft.

The GE Digital Asset Records software will allow us to organize, view, search, retrieve, download and transfer documents digitally to facilitate regulatory compliance within the leasing industry accepted ATA SPEC 2500 document structure.

Dave Marcontell - Chief Operating Officer, Connect Airlines

“The modern, forward-thinking use of QR codes to transfer data among different IT platforms is meeting our objective to operate smarter and with a light footprint; critical for managing costs and compliance for a rapidly growing airline,” said Marcontell.


Based in the Greater Boston, Massachusetts area and part of private jet operator, Waltzing Matilda Aviation, Connect Airlines is starting its service with daily flights from Toronto, Canada to Philadelphia, and Chicago’s O’Hare airport. It is also the first 100% cloud-based 121 airline.


Data-Driven Decisions to Support the Fleet


Across its fleet, Connect Airlines must manage and ensure compliance for more than 3,000 parts per aircraft.


Asset Records® is designed to help operators to streamline aircraft records management. With cloud-based solutions, operators can digitize, index, and archive all maintenance records as well as effectively connect the records and data of internal and external IT platforms making them easily accessible for record search, administration, support, and processing.


A robust records management system, Asset Records manages all the documents associated with aircraft lifecycle. Powered by Microsoft® Azure’s technology, it requires minimal IT infrastructure: organizations can simply connect through secure web-based access. Asset Records is ideal for anyone that needs better solutions for maintaining service records for their aircraft, whether owners, operators, lessors, or MROs.


The project management module within the system enables users to create aircraft transaction projects, view dashboards to see project status, view status of multiple projects in parallel, and interactively manage the lessor checklist status of required documentation. The module has a modern interface that will provide clear identification of stakeholders, documentation management status, and a digital master issues list to give an “at a glance” view of the project. Included in the tool is an administration module that provides users the ability to manage permissions, assets, and checklists.

Our software enables customers like Connect Airlines to make data-driven decisions regarding real-time fleet health.

Andrew Coleman - General Manager, GE Digital Aviation Software

“From the airport to the back office, and everything in between, our software gives customers access to the data and expertise needed to run a successful world class operation," said Coleman.
