Commsoft, a world leader in aviation engineering and maintenance systems, is delighted to announce that Cardiff Aviation Limited has selected OASES to support its CAMO and MRO operations and has signed a five year, 10 concurrent users deal.

Founded in 2012 by senior aviation manager and entrepreneur Mario Fulgoni and Bruce Dickinson, vocalist with rock band Iron Maiden, Cardiff Aviation is a fully-approved and certificated aviation maintenance, engineering, technical services and training group based at the St Athan-Cardiff Airport Enterprise Zone in South Wales. Mr Dickinson has flown for over 7000 hours as a Boeing 757 pilot and formerly worked with Mr Fulgoni at the UK-based Astraeus Airlines.

With 132,000 square feet of fully-equipped hangar space and workshops alongside a 6000 foot ILS runway, and with parking for up to 20 narrow-bodied airliners, the company is equipped to undertake almost any planned or unscheduled engineering and maintenance work and has the expertise and approvals to certify aircraft from many jurisdictions. Cardiff Aviation’s current clients include a range of national carriers and independent airlines as well as a number of aircraft leasing companies.

OASES, designed to combine ease of use with a technical sophistication that allows for the full integration of all maintenance and engineering functions, is structured in a modular format. Cardiff Aviation has opted to use Commsoft’s hosted Windows RDP environment to run the Core, Airworthiness, Planning, Production, Materials and Warranty modules.

Nick Godwin, MD of Commsoft, commented:
“With significant new investment and exciting plans for expansion, Cardiff Aviation looks set to have a significant impact on the aerospace industry across the South Wales region and beyond. We’re obviously delighted that they have chosen OASES to support their CAMO and MRO operations and we’re looking forward to working closely with them to ensure the successful implementation of the system.”

Phillip Brown, Quality Manager of Cardiff Aviation, commented:
The selection process was one of the key cornerstones to the creation of Cardiff Aviation and numerous other products were reviewed. We chose OASES because it gives us the confidence that we are using a mature and efficient product and it reinforces the way we perform to achieve the high standards we expect. We are excited about this selection and looking forward to building a long term relationship”.
