Aspeq unveils new online e- licensing system

A new electronic licensing system for regulatory authorities that allows aviation professionals to apply, renew and manage licences online has been launched by Aspeq and our UK partner CAA International.

Developed using the latest HTML5 and Microsoft.Net technology, the new e-Licensing System is fully compatible with Aspeq’s existing e-Examination System, that has already been implemented by numerous Aviation Authorities worldwide, including the UK CAA.

Using pre-set workflows tailored to regulatory requirements, the e-Licensing system can immediately determine an applicant’s licence eligibility through a unique “Am I Ready” validation. When candidates do not meet the prerequisites, the system highlights areas of deficiency and guides candidates through a step-by-step process to submission, without Aviation Authority staff intervention. Candidates can track the status of an application online, and Approved Training Organisations can easily manage mass applications for trainees or existing licence holders applying for ratings or extensions. 

Supporting compliance with ICAO Standards and Recommend Practices (SARPs), the new e-Licensing system helps maximises safety performance and the efficiency of an Aviation Authority. Custom built workflows free-up Authority personnel, allowing resource to be reallocated to safety-critical areas. Automated dashboards and workflow reports allow Authorities to manage work allocation more effectively. As licensing requirements change, trained staff can easily update or redesign application workflows without input from a Developer, giving Authorities the flexibility to respond quickly.  

The elimination of paper-based licence applications marks a major milestone in 21st Century regulatory processing. Mike Lynskey, Director of Business Development says, “e-Licensing is an exciting new product that can be used in aviation and other sectors. Our e-Examination technology has already provided significant process improvement and safety oversight benefits to Authorities. E-Licensing technology will help streamline the licensing process, taking business efficiency to a new level and provides candidates with a modern, easy-to-use system that can enhance the safety and security of licensing and the reputation of an Authority”.

The e-Licensing system can manage all aviation licence types including pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers and air traffic controller licensing, in addition to local regulatory licences. It could also be use used for managing licensing in other sectors such as maritime and road transport.
