Maintenance management made easy with MTX Control

Aircraft downtime is a necessary element of routine maintenance inspections, repairs and installations. While an aircraft may be confined to the repair station until its work scope has been completed, maintenance managers don't have to be. Pentastar Aviation's MTX Control is a web-based interface that allows maintenance customers to monitor maintenance being performed on their aircraft and view and approve squawks in real time from anywhere in the world. Each maintenance customer can access the details of their work scope via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device. The streamlining of the squawk review and approval process extends into Pentastar's internal maintenance control processes, ensuring the highest levels of quality assurance for each work scope. Not only is MTX Control efficient, the interface is very user friendly. Photos and narrated videos allow maintenance managers to see the same detailed overview of each squawk that they would experience onsite. Multimedia files also serve as a visual record of discrepancies for the entire scope. As new technology becomes available, MTX Control will be tailored to incorporate fresh innovations. The screen shots below illustrate the interface's ease of use.  All examples below were used with customer permission.
