Archer Aviation is to leverage paperless maintenance and engineering software provider Trax's eMRO system and eMobility apps and its cloud hosting services to manage planned electric air taxi operations.

Trax's advanced, modular, web-based solution for aviation maintenance and supply chain management will enable Archer's real-time administration of production, planning, engineering, inventory, technical records, orders and reliability processes. Operating in Trax's secure, reliable and paperless environment will support Archer's goals to quickly build a safe, efficient, nimble, compliant and high performing air taxi operation.

"Trax will allow Archer to safely and efficiently scale deployment of our electric air taxi service. Implementation of Trax is a key building block of our operational ecosystem and will provide our technical operations team and pilots an industry leading system to manage the operation," says Archer COO of urban air mobility Tom Anderson.

Trax EVP Andrew Schmidt adds: "Trax's eMRO and eMobility products will enable Archer's air taxi service to be completely paperless on day one, and help the company achieve its goals through operational efficiency, streamlined processes and a highly productive workforce."
