Bombardier Develops New Capabilities For Digital Technical Publications

Bombardier Regional Aircraft has developed new capabilities for its CRJ regional jet and Q-Series turboprop technical manuals delivered in Abode PDF format.

Scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2008, BRADD Nav – Bombardier Regional Aircraft Digital Data Navigator – offers the following capabilities:

  • The ability to merge aircraft operator documentation with Bombardier manuals, allowing for a single system instead of multiple systems;
  • The ability for operators to merge Customer Originated Changes with technical manuals;
  • The ability to view pertinent operator documentation at the same time as technical manuals;
  • The ability to view multiple manuals at the same time; currently, only one manual can be seen;
  • The ability to switch from one aircraft manual collection to another;
  • An automated temporary revision insertion system for quick updates of technical manuals; this will eventually include real-time Internet delivery.

“This advancement represents a significant step forward in the ‘Go Digital’ initiative our Technical Publications team has embarked on,” said Todd Young, Vice-president, Customer Support, Bombardier Regional Aircraft. “Our intent is to provide our operators with the tools they need to enable them to capitalize on all the advantages digital documentation can provide, ultimately eliminating the need for paper.”
