GPMS makes major expansion of certified installer network
While some prefer to install Foresight themselves, others have it done for them. Expansion allows GPMS to boost scalability, ensure quality and support its current deliveries, the growing backlog and mounting demand.
All GPMS customers have the option to get trusted, high-quality installations and support through GPMS’s certified installer network.

Helicopter predictive analytics company GPMS International has expanded its certified installer network to meet the growing demand for its Foresight MX health and usage monitoring system (HUMS).

VP sales Todd Powers says: “We are at an important phase in the growth of our company. We recognise that our operators have deep relationships with their existing MRO providers, most of whom I've known for years or even decades. While we already had a strong start to the certified installer programme, we needed additional customisation experts to meet and deliver on the demand and deliveries with quality installations and enhanced support.”

Twelve companies have been added to GPMS's certified installer network, which now totals 15. All are Part 145 repair stations with industry-recognised installation and customisation experience including Advanced Helicopter Services, Aero Products, AeroBrigham, Air Flite, Arista Aviation, Cascade Helicopter Services, Hangar One Avionics, Helipark in Brazil, Mansfield Heliflight, Metro Aviation, Rotorcraft Services Group and Sterling Helicopter. They join existing certified installers East West Helicopters, Precision (Oregon) and Wysong Enterprises.

Wysong Enterprises was one of the original certified installers, and the team there is well aware of the benefits that an advanced HUMS like Foresight delivers to operators. Director of operations Paul Schreuder says: “Our team at Wysong has gladly been a part of many Foresight installations. We can tell you that this technology from GPMS is the future of HUMS and comprehensive condition-based monitoring for our industry. It provides an unprecedented level of insight in a compact, lightweight design, and our customers have been very happy with the solution.”

Mike Hannahs, business development manager at Aero Products, one of the new installers, says the lure for companies like Aero Products to become part of the network goes beyond being simply a business transaction. They also recognise the benefits that advanced HUMS can have for customers in safety and saving money. “HUMS is a great add-on that will allow our customers to minimise the cost of unscheduled maintenance, and at the same time add another degree of safety to their operations,” he says.

Aero Products is both a Bell certified service facility and Airbus approved maintenance facility.
