(03 Jun 2021) 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 accountability.”
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.
