The company is one of three new customers confirmed at the recent NBAA-BACE 2023.

Celestial joins Fly House, a California-based jet management and charter company, and St Maarten Airways (SXM Airways), a specialised provider of private air charter services in St. Maarten, the Caribbean, in making the switch to digital documentation. 

Krister Genmark, Web Manuals’ vice-president of sales Americas, said: “NBAA 2023 has been a huge success for the Web Manuals team. It’s an honour to witness an increasing number of aviation businesses recognise the value of switching to a digital documentation system when it comes to safety and compliance.

“Welcoming three new customers is truly exciting and we’ve enjoyed getting to know the teams at Fly House, SXM Airways and Celestial Airways during such a pivotal industry event.”

Suran Wijayawardana, chief aviation officer, Fly House, said: “Our team has so far been impressed with how easy it’s been to edit and manage documents with Web Manuals, following a successful demo comprised of 50 readers, five editors and three compliance libraries.”

Capt Jeff Oliver, chief pilot of SXM Airways, said: “We were particularly impressed with the ability to access all safety regulations within a singular tool. Working with Web Manuals will allow us to navigate a complex regulatory environment, while enhancing operational safety for our charter customers.”
