Canadian federal airspace regulatory agency Navigation Canada has chosen RAAS as its preferred aviation maintenance and engineering system solution, in support of its specialized fleet of CRJ and DHC8 aircraft.

Facing the increasing challenges of providing proof of compliance while supporting a robust continuing airworthiness program, Nav Canada undertook the search for a suitable replacement aviation maintenance and engineering system with a feature set diverse enough to satisfy Nav Canada’s unique requirements.  After considering a range of competing products RAAS was chosen not only for its broad array of functions but also largely because of its very modern hosted cloud application deliver model, which ensures quick system implementation as well as easy distribution of the system solution across the primary enterprise while also providing access to contract third-party maintenance providers.

Nav Canada PRM Paul Wood comments, “AIS approach to development of hosted cloud solutions for the enterprise aviation operation is in-line with both our functional and operational requirements.  After comparing a range of systems our decision to proceed with RAAS became obvious”.

AIS Director of Operations, Eric Hansen, adds, “We are excited to have been selected by Nav Canada and look forward to working closely with Paul and his team to help expand their capacity for inspection and continuing airworthiness program managent”.
