1. A computer-implemented method of analyzing aircraft data for preventative maintenance, comprising:

  • utilizing an aircraft dataset from an operational source;

    parsing the aircraft dataset into a data field;

    determining an acceptable range of values for the aircraft dataset within the data field to define a threshold for the aircraft dataset;

    automatically activating a dynamic trigger to indicate a maintenance alert when the threshold is crossed;

    deriving a performance indication for the operational source by determining one or more performance trends of the aircraft dataset;

    associating with the maintenance alert a notification having a status level indicative of a maintenance condition for the operational source;

    combining the performance indication and the notification into an electronic report that forecasts need for preventative aircraft maintenance; and

    automatically delivering the electronic report to a predetermined location for retrieval by a consumer.
