ABS Jets, an executive operator and maintenance
organization based in the Czech Republic, has signed an agreement
to use Beacon as its dedicated maintenance coordination platform.
The deal marks Beacon’s debut in Europe.
Developed by EmbraerX, Embraer’s market
accelerator for disruptive businesses, Beacon connects operators, maintenance services, and
mechanics in a more efficient way,
helping to ensure the rapid return of aircraft to service.
ABS ran the first maintenance case on 1 April and
expects to run over 50 maintenance cases per year, reducing
out-of-service time by 20%.
“In this competitive race, we need to adopt
digital solutions that focus on empowering our people,” said
Vladimir Sip, Chief Technical Officer, ABS Jets. “We are excited
about our partnership with Beacon and support all maintenance
stakeholders in being more efficient in bringing planes back to
service. Since we started running all our maintenance cases on the
platform, we see less miscommunication, less wait-time and more
ABS Jets has a mixed fleet of aircraft and
helicopters from several manufactures. The company expects Beacon’s adoption rate to
increase among their partners in Europe and North America as they
plan to not only onboard their own team members but also invite
their OEMs and field service representatives while expanding the
network to better serve their customers.
“We are proud to welcome ABS Jets as the first
European executive operator in our platform,” said Marco A. Cesarino, Head of Beacon.
“With Beacon, ABS Jets can easily onboard all their maintenance
stakeholders and coordinate efforts across teams. We are not just
a software solution. We are enabling digital transformation so
that the ecosystem can reduce inefficiencies and keep planes
flying in a smarter way. Together with our partners, we are
building, today, the future of aviation maintenance and services.”
Since its launch, Beacon has concluded over 35,000
unscheduled cases by more than one thousand users.
