EP #026: Rhiannon Silvashy - Bluetail - Revisiting the Evolution of Electronic Record Keeping in BIZAV
This week we link up with our friend Rhiannon Silvashy for another episode of the Aviation Growth Podcast. Rhiannon has spent the last 10+ years in aviation software and recently joined the team at Bluetail (Congrats!). Following the NBAA Maintenance Conference, Rhiannon gave me a ring and thought it would be great to discuss some of the latest trends regarding electronic record keeping and electronic signatures in business aviation.
We dig into some of the obstacles (People, Tech, Finance, Regulations) that are preventing the industry from moving into a completely digital world as well as the evolutions that are helping us get closer. We plan to continue this discussion and would like to bring content to the industry that could be beneficial in helping operators achieve a paperless environment.
If you’d like to get involved in the conversation or feel like you could provide valuable content, please reach out to us on our Contact Page or on LinkedIn.
