AMOS – a flexible and future-proof decision

Swiss-AS is pleased to announce that Petroleum Air Services (PAS) and Swiss-AS have signed agreements regarding the purchase and implementation of AMOS.

PAS was searching the market for a fully integrated turnkey solution that provides the option to adapt to new requirements without changes to the source code.

After a swift and efficient evaluation of the MRO software available on the market, PAS reached the conclusion that AMOS provided the best-fit solution for their requirements

AMOS will be implemented without any customer specific changes and PAS can rely on a proven software that reflects industry-best-practices and allows managing both their aircraft and helicopters within one single system. When selecting AMOS customers also obtain a comprehensive maintenance agreement that guarantees two major releases per year. This assurance proved to be one key factor in convincing PAS that AMOS was indeed the future-proof solution they were looking for.

AMOS features for helicopter maintenance

AMOS has been supporting helicopter operators right from the beginning, when the Swiss Air-Rescue (= Rega) signed for AMOS in 1992. Over the years, the percentage of helicopters maintained within the AMOS Community has constantly increased and, as a result, the rotor wing dedicated functionalities have been expanded accordingly. Swiss-AS is pleased to offer its expertise to support the dynamic helicopter industry and cater to their specific needs. AMOS incorporates globally integrated supply chain management of spares and health monitoring of vibration characteristics of the airframe and rotating components. In addition to the many AMOS interfaces available, the utilisation of the flight schedule interfaces, along with mission configuration, enables precise monitoring of operating times and parameter exceedance. The combination of all these features allows AMOS to support the industry-wide requirements for dynamic control to maintain the safety of helicopters.

Furthermore, AMOS offers an extensive counter management program to track equipment and components with standard or individualised counters, dimensions and penalties.

Cloud hosting package

The Egyptian aviation company has also signed for the Swiss-AS hosting package, a combination of the proven AMOS Operation Services (AOS), covering the application and database administration and cloud hosting (Google Cloud Platform). The AMOS environments will be easily accessible for PAS from all their operation bases via secured VPN connections. By signing for the hosting services, PAS is relieved of the requirement to operate a technical infrastructure on premises and can rely on a high level of operation in compliance with the latest IT and security standards.

“With the PAS decision to go for AMOS, the number of rotor wing operators among the AMOS Community is increasing and this demonstrates the capability of AMOS. With only one software, our customers are in the position to manage a mixed fixed wing and rotor wing fleet,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
