Staying true to our roots

Gannet launched in 2008 with Atlantic Airways.
Spreading our wings ever since
Constantly improving the Gannet on the basis of “made by engineers for engineers"
The Gannet safe and simple rule: Keeping the easy things easy, and the complicated possible.
Nurture the bond and ties between all the members of the Gannet family

Schematic, Gannet looks like this:

1. Aircraft Basics

Before you can create an Aircraft you need to complete the data that is needed for the aircraft basis information.
  • Manufacturer: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
  • Aircraft Model: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
  • Aircraft Variant: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
  • Aircraft Owner: Generic Data - TAB: Operators and Owners
  • Aircraft Operator: Generic Data - TAB: Operators and Owners
  • Maintenance Class: Maintenance Data – TAB: Maintenance Program Class
  • “Use margins” - Set the use margins if you want to specify margin (tolerance) on maintenance task intervals.

2. Publications

The scope of this module is to provide both information used in Maintenance Program module and report that shows the current revision of the publications used in the maintenance process.

3. Maintenance Data

Maintenance Program Class

A Maintenance Program Class is a basic definition for where you assign an Aircraft and a Maintenance Program to.
Zones, Panels and Positions are also defined for a Maintenance Program Class.
To use Margins in the Maintenance Program Tasks tolerances, the “Uses Margins?” must be set.

Margin / Margin escalation:
If you have a task with 100HR interval and 10HR margin.
Without margin escalation: If done at 105HR, the next due will be at 200HR.
With margin escalation: If done at 105HR, the next due will be 205HR
Zones and Panels are used in the Maintenance Program for defining the Zone to work in and the Panels to open/close to get access.
Positions defined in this module shall be used when you want to install a component on a certain position of the aircraft:
Minimum Equipment List

From the Work Cards Module / Unscheduled Work Cards Tab, it is possible to refer to items from this list. By doing this there will be a collection of data in the system for how often an Aircraft has been given a M.E.L. extension.

4. Components

This module is designed to list all the rotable components which have ever been installed on an aircraft.
You can also see the maintenance that has to be done for a certain S/N as well as S/N history.
You can also see the maintenance that has to be done for a certain S/N
As well as S/N history
Component Maintenance Logs can be created

5. Maintenance Program

This is the module where every scheduled maintenance task is imported.
There is also the possibility to add repetitive AD’s / SB’s when printing the Maintenance Program for the local CAA.
For every task you set the applicability as an airframe task .
Or as a component related task.
Adding resources details like manhours, skills, tools and parts required to complete a task can be a very handy feature.
Airframe tasks with the same interval can be grouped into “Checks and Packages”.
You have the possibility to add repetitive AD’s / SB’s when printing the Maintenance Program for the local CAA.

6. Airworthiness

This module contains every AD, SB, SIL, MOD etc. related to the customer fleet.

7. Journey Logs

We know there are operators out there who update a/c counters monthly. Or when they complete a task. But we know the best practice is to update the Journey Logs in real time or almost in real time.

8. Forecast

The Forecast is the PART-M planning tool.
If you set in the Forecast Basis an expected number of flight hours / month, you can have an expected date for hourly tasks, in the Forecast.
There is a tab where you can create Work Orders on which you can add tasks directly from Forecast.

9. Workcards

The Guesstimate is the Hangar planning tool.

Only Work Orders or Unscheduled Work Cards which have the status as open can be seen on the Guesstimate – as soon as a Work Order/WC or Unscheduled W/C has been accomplished it will disappear from the Guesstimate i.e. only Work Orders / Work Cards not accomplished will be seen here.
The SWC tab is the main tool for you to manage the scheduled tasks you have on WO. From replacing components to accomplishing / closing a WC, everything is in here.
Same goes for UWC tab with few noticeable but very useful differences, like the “Pilot Remark” which triggers the Log details feature, MEL and so on.
From Guestimate you can add the WC’s to the task list and assign them to the desired Part-145 Staff. You can also monitor the work progression in real time.
If you have the capability you can create In-House WC’s for various components and issue Certificates.
Additional info for you to see the components and tools needed/used.
On WC History tab you can see who performed any action on a given task.

10. Extensions

If for various reasons a task can not be accomplished on time, you can ask for an extension.

11. Requested Parts

Requested Parts is for requesting all kind of Parts – regardless of Work Cards.
The person making the request may have approval rights for making requests – if not the request must be approved by a given person.

12. Inventory

This is the tab where you create P/N’s. There are two types of P/N: rotable and consumable.
Rotable is used for any item that is identifiable by a serial number. Consumable, is used for parts that will be used and discarded. Consumables have only a batch number.
There are several types of orders in Gannet, but basically they all fit into two main categories:
Order where you DO NOT send out a serial-number:
  • Purchase order, based on P/N and quantity
  • Forward exchange, for when you order rotables – and you will be required to return an unserviceable component “In Lieu”.
  • Consumable Repair
  • Warranty Consumable
Order where you DO send out a serial-number:
  • Repair, you send out a specific component. Vendor might repair this component or might opt to send to another component as replacement.
  • Exchange, to use when you want to exchange a component.
  • Warranty claim, for sending component out claiming warranty repair or replacement.
  • Loan order, when you send a s/n out for repair, overhaul etc and you receive a new s/n for the duration of the repair.
For every order you send, you can get one or more invoices.
The requested parts tab shows you an overview of all parts that have been requested.
A request can be related to a WC, but there can also be “standalone” requests that might not have a connection to a WC.
On the stock transfer tab you can “move” components or batches between stocks – or between locations in the same stock.
Stocktaking is used to verify that the on stock quantities listed in Gannet are correct.
There are three basic scenarios where the stocktaking is used:
  • (Normal) Correcting the quantity of a single batch if a discrepancy is detected.
  • (Expired Parts) Zeroing out expired parts.
  • (Normal) Doing the annual stocktaking.
  • (Scrapped parts) Scrapping rotables that are on stock.

13. Tools

This module allows you to supervise your tools status related to recertification due date.
For every tool you have, you can add relevant data like P/N, S/N, vendor, required maintenance, initial certification date, photos etc.
You can also see all the maintenance that has ever been done for a certain tool.

Extra Modules

  • Counters

    In this module you define your (special) counters and assign them to the A/C
