Airbus Helicopters & Rusada Partnership Enables Digital Pipeline
19th Mar 2019
Airbus Helicopters’ maintenance information system FleetMaster, which is powered by our ENVISION software, was demonstrated by the OEM at this year’s HAI Heli-Expo.
Airbus Helicopters performed daily live demonstrations of their HCare connected services range, of which FleetMaster is a key component, as well as announcing several new customers. Superior Helicopters became the first HCare Infinite customer in North America and the National Police Air Service (NPAS) of the United Kingdom signed a global support contract for their fleet of 19 helicopters. The NPAS helicopters are managed by Airbus Helicopters UK, which also utilises ENVISION.
For approved service centres and small to medium-sized fleet operators without a dedicated maintenance information system (MIS), Airbus Helicopters and Rusada offer FleetMaster, a turnkey homegrown solution powered by ENVISION, that seamlessly exchanges maintenance data with Airbus systems. The system is available for competitive prices to operators of Airbus helicopters and maintenance organisations with Airbus approval. Recognising that companies may have multiple approvals and operate multiple different helicopter and aircraft types, the system is fully capable of managing diverse fleets.
Capable of linking with aircraft data systems, Fleet Keeper, the Airbus e-techlog, Orion documentation, spares ordering and providing data analytics extracts, Fleet Master is a key component of the new digital pipeline offered by Airbus Helicopters to the rotary wing community.
Today, more than 600 helicopters are sharing data with Airbus Helicopters. They represent just about every helicopter type in Airbus’ range – H125s, H130s, H145s, H155s, H175s, H215s, and H225s, among others – performing a wide variety of missions including emergency medical services (EMS), public services, tourism, training, private and business aviation, oil & gas and search and rescue.
Julian Stourton, our CEO said:
“Airbus Helicopters gave a terrific demonstration of their HCare suite at Heli-Expo, with some outstanding services on display and numerous contracts signed. I’m proud that Rusada is able to play critical part in their success and look forward to further strengthening our partnership.”
