Commsoft, a world leader in aviation engineering and maintenance systems, is delighted to announce that it has signed an all-new contract with existing OASES users, European Skybus. The 5-year, 5 concurrent users deal will enable European Skybus to manage a significantly increased level of CAMO activity.

Designed to combine ease of use with a technical sophistication that allows for the full integration of all maintenance and engineering functions, Commsoft’s OASES is structured in a modular format and European Skybus has selected the Core, Airworthiness and Planning modules. The contract also upgrades the company to an Oracle environment offering the latest AMP and AD/SB management facilities.

The signing of this contract comes at an important time for European Skybus. A Boeing 737-300 is being immediately implemented for a third party corporate customer in the hosted OASES system and the company is also actively marketing its services to airlines and corporate operators alike. With further CAMO activities anticipated, European Skybus has already recruited two experienced technical staff with extensive OASES experience.

Nick Godwin, MD of Commsoft, commented:
“This is an exciting time for European Skybus as it prepares to handle a significant increase in its CAMO operations.  We’re delighted that their previous successful experience has led them to continue using OASES and the new contract is further evidence of the success of our hosted OASES offering, which now has 12 customers.”

Shaun Penton Director of European Skybus added:
“We see this as an exciting development as we expand and enhance our CAMO services for additional customers. We consistently strive to improve our service to our customers and see the upgraded OASES system as a tool in helping us achieve this.”
