More than 1,500 dents were digitally mapped and reported by 8tree’s dentCHECK-as-a-Service (daaS) at Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) hangars in Zurich, Switzerland. The control surfaces of a B777 and an A220 had been damaged in a hailstorm. 8tree’s service engineers used the dentCHECK dent-mapping tool to digitally map and report all dents on the affected areas, efficiently and effectively.
“We are very satisfied with the service provided by 8tree”, says Claus Bauer, Head of Technical Division at SWISS. “The automated dentCHECK-tool helped us to record hail damage quickly and completely so that we could rectify it promptly. This enabled us to return the aircraft concerned to flight operations in airworthy condition as quickly as possible, which is of key importance to us as an airline.”
“We are excited that Swiss International Air Lines decided to perform the dent-mapping on two hail damaged aircraft with 8tree’s service capabilities”, said Erik Klaas, CTO, 8tree. “As the first Swiss airline, they joined the growing base of dentCHECK-as-a-Service customers who disposition hail damage affected aircraft using our dentCHECK tool. We look forward to continuing Swiss International Airlines maintenance operations.”
