ADSOFTWARE and REGIO LEASE are proud contributors to the “Electric Green Taxiing System” (EGTS) display, the most ground breaking presentation of the recent 50th International Paris Air Show.

Le Bourget Air Show 2013 was dominated by yet more airliner orders, plus breakthroughs in new aircraft coming to market, significant deliveries, and some amazing innovation launches. The most anticipated one was the first public demonstration of the “Electric Green Taxiing System” technology installed on an Airbus A320

The modified aircraft showed off its moves on the runway, powered by its environmentally-friendly electric motoring mounted on the main gear. REGIO LEASE and ADSOFTWARE have worked hard to allow the demonstration to happen at the show. REGIO LEASE provided the consulting and technical backbone of the operations together with ensuring the complete airworthiness management of the aircraft, and ADSOFTWARE gave the supporting tools to allow REGIOLEASE to do so.

The Safran A320-212 used for testing the EGTS has had a unique life that required the flexibility of a software solution that AIRPACK is able to provide. To comply with  the authority’s requirements, all the parts of the EGTS had to be followed up inside a Kardex model (the theoretical structure of the aircraft which defines the positions of the equipment installed, the breakdown of these positions, and the maintenance limitations) as if the aircraft was being operated within normal conditions. This first required all the parts to be created within the system as they didn’t exist before. “We have been working with ADSOFTWARE since we got into business in 2005, and all tasks associated with the continuing airworthiness of the aircraft we handle are managed via AIRPACK. We knew the system would allow us to support the EGTS project,” said Laurent Le Minh Loc, CEO of REGIO LEASE.

The demonstration was an absolute success and the parties involved celebrated the achievement on the ADSoftware stand during the show. “It is a first for an aircraft equipment manufacturer to be able to handle such a project. This is a chance for ADSOFTWARE and REGIO LEASE to be associated with such a technology exploit,” said Fred Ulrich, CEO of ADSoftware, during the celebration.
