ATP was founded in 1973 by Bill Daniels and Caroline Daniels on the innovative idea of using technology to create a single source library service for aviation technical and regulatory publications. ATP’s services and technologies have since transformed the way maintenance professionals access and use technical information, and can be found in most general and business aviation maintenance operations worldwide.
Since 1973 the company has continually worked with customers and OEM partners to innovate new technologies for accessing and managing critical information. These technologies included the first digital library management services for general aviation in the 1980s, and one of the industry's first maintenance tracking technologies in 1982. Building on this foundation, the company patented several unique technologies in the 1990s that continue to support the compliance and safety efforts of the aviation industry today. These distinctive technologies were often copied, and some were eventually licensed to other companies and former competitors due to ATP's strong concern for aviation safety.
In 1992 ATP developed the first PC-based software for accessing Gulfstream aircraft technical publications. Within a short time maintenance professionals could access the world's largest selection of aviation technical and regulatory publications on CD-ROM from ATP. In 2003 ATP released the NavigatorV™ software platform, which provides a single software solution for regulatory and technical publications and aircraft profile and compliance tracking to ensure airworthiness.
Today, ATP delivers over 4 terabytes of updated information every month to a growing base of over 27,000 users in 96 countries. The ATP Aviation Hub™ Online Service and the HubConnect™ App for iPad® provide a wide array of valuable knowledge services and empower clients with the tools necessary to do their jobs, anytime, anywhere, over the Internet. And, ATP is continuing to work with customers and OEM partners to develop new solutions that support compliance and safety; increase speed of information to customers; and facilitate information exchanges between manufacturers, maintenance organizations, governments and transportation carriers worldwide. One of these new solutions is the PartsConnect™ Inventory Management Service, which connects parts ordering with the technical publications for the first time.
