ABS Jets, an executive operator and maintenance organisation from the Czech Republic, has appointed Beacon as its dedicated maintenance coordination platform to accelerate return-to-service time. The operator ran the first maintenance case on 1 April and expects to run over 50 maintenance cases per year, reducing its out-of-service time by 20 per cent.

Developed by EmbraerX, Embraer's market accelerator for disruptive businesses, Beacon is a platform that connects operators, maintenance services and mechanics in a more agile, collaborative and efficient way, ensuring the rapid return of aircraft to service. Based on network connections, Beacon brings a new dynamic to the maintenance and services ecosystem, being capable of serving any manufacturer, anywhere.

“In this competitive race, we need to adopt digital solutions that focus on empowering our people,” says ABS Jets chief technical officer Vladimir Sip: “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.”

Head of Beacon Marco A. Cesarino adds: “We are proud to welcome ABS Jets as the first European executive operator on our platform. With Beacon, ABS Jets can easily onboard all its 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.”

By signing this agreement, Beacon launches its platform in Europe while building awareness of its fleet agnostic approach, as ABS Jets has a mixed fleet of aircraft and helicopters from several manufacturers.

ABS Jets expects Beacon's adoption rate to increase among its partners in Europe and North America. It plans not only to onboard its own team members but also invite its OEMs and field service representatives while expanding the network to better serve its customers.

By the end of April 2021, Beacon concluded over 35,000 unscheduled cases by more than 1,000 users. These numbers are expected to grow as the aviation industry recovers from COVID-19.
