We expect Wheels Up’s partnership with Bluetail to provide measurable time and cost savings for our maintenance operation and improve aircraft availability.”

Also AI search engine, MACH Search gives the teams faster and more accurate record searches, saving hundreds of hours of research time with no need for document tagging.

We are extremely proud that they have selected Bluetail’s modern digital records platform to securely store and manage all of their maintenance and service records.”
