US cargo and special-missions airline Kalitta Air has begun using 8tree’s dentCHECK to enhance its aircraft dent-mapping activities.  

dentCHECK is a handheld and wireless 3D scanning tool with AR that is purpose-built for the aviation maintenance industry and used by maintenance firms, airlines and manufacturers.

The company said the device will deliver real-time ‘go/no-go’ answers and reduce damage-mapping inspection and reporting times, compared with traditional manual methods that use depth-gauges and straight-edges.

This shortens aircraft Turn-around-Time (TaT), which further reduces lost revenues and very directly improves operational efficiency for airlines.

Cargo airline Kalitta Air operates an all-Boeing fleet of 38 aircraft comprising the 747, 767 and 777 aircraft types.

“With the implementation of 8tree’s dentCHECK technology, Kalitta Air’s dent mapping programme will be elevated to the next level,” said Zoltan Kocis, vice president of maintenance, engineering and procurement, Kalitta Air.
