–    Second member of UTair Group chooses AMOS
–    AMOS foot-print in helicopter maintenance widens considerably

Positive AMOS experience also convinces sister company

Swiss-AS is pleased to announce that the Russian rotary wing MRO provider UTair Engineering has chosen AMOS and has already planned the first project steps.

UTair Engineering now becomes the second member of the UTair Group to choose AMOS, following the airline UTair Aviation, who joined the AMOS Community in 2012. Having an AMOS reference customer within the company group placed UTair Engineering in a very favourable position during the software selection process. The UTair Engineering evaluation team were able to witness for themselves the quality and suitability of AMOS and rely on UTair Aviation’s first-hand experience of the project implementation and daily usage of AMOS post go-live.

Dedicated rotary-wing features in AMOS

AMOS offers a wide scope of dedicated functions for helicopters to cater to their special needs and requirements.

Vibration monitoring is used to identify the early stages of helicopter component degradation, connecting this to the dynamic counter options within AMOS to optimize maintenance control and performance. AMOS offers a complete suite of engineering requirements to control the maintenance needs of the helicopter industry. In addition, AMOS can handle the management of extensive pooling contracts which are tailored to the specific operational environments of helicopters, such as search & rescue as well as oil & gas industries.

AMOS covers the wide range of different helicopter OEM requirements and is not limited to certain helicopter brands or types. Due to the amount of OEMs in the market, AMOS adaptability supports the operator to manage approval for modification installations on any particular model. AMOS also provides mission logic, which enables individual system capability set up aligned to the types of missions flown. Fleet uniformity or customer preference can be accurately tracked in AMOS using the in-depth effectivity rule logic. The main goal of AMOS is to improve the overall operational safety by encompassing as many of these factors as possible and then produce a streamlined, process driven structure, for example, to manage weight and balance issues resulting from modifications or from kit installations.

„With UTair Engineering we are pleased to welcome on board one of the largest helicopter specialised MRO providers. The implementation of AMOScentral may bring further considerable benefits to the two UTair Group members in terms of a closer cooperation on parts availability, data sharing and similar synergies,“ states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

“UTair has been using AMOS for over 7 years in order to optimize maintenance of Boeing 737, 767 and ATR-72 aircraft. We welcome the opportunity for enhanced cooperation. AMOS modules allow for automation of production processes, reduce the risk of poor planning, help to cut maintenance costs and eventually improve flight safety ,” commented Rashid Faradzhaev, General Director of UTair Engineering.
