PRLog - July 23, 2014 - CLUSES, France -- In an industry that demands constant compliance with regulations, Sudanese carrier Nova Airways was looking for a system that could help them to stay ahead of changing requirements by anticipating any modifications required by regulatory texts.
The AirPack solution proved to have the answer, with two specific modules inside the maintenance software which are dedicated to airworthiness management, regulatory compliance and fleet reliability. AirTime would enable the engineering department to coordinate the compliance of the aircraft with the required maintenance programs, applicable airworthiness directives, service bulletins, log books, planning, mechanics and shop activity. AirStat presented a next-generation reliability and statistics reporting tool for generating key elements of the airline’s performance. It also allowed the airline to share these elements with the local civil aviation authorities and aircraft manufacturers. Next-generation analytics, such as AirStat, are leading to broader perspectives in terms of aircraft maintenance, emphasizing the use of predictive maintenance techniques in addition to traditional preventive measures.
Nova Airways is currently the largest Sudanese airline operating a fleet of 3 CRJ200, 1 CRJ200LR and 1 B737-500. While the Sudan Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) has been relentlessly pushing for a safer airspace, Nova Airways has been working hard to remain fully compliant with all its local aviation standards. Now the airline has moved another step ahead and has furnished its maintenance department with ADSoftware’s maintenance ERP suite. The package selected comprises of five AirPack modules with the main focus being on airworthiness management, supply chain and fleet reliability in accordance with EASA and FAA standards.
On site and B2B training has been provided to Nova Airways to facilitate a smooth production phase and allow users working on the system to gain confidence and operate efficiently in their day to day work. “Generally speaking the training provided by ADSoftware was top notch and I can confidently say that the AirTime module has enabled us to control the airworthiness part of our maintenance with great success”, says Demelash Alemayehu, Maintenance Director at Nova Airways.
Commenting on the successful launch of the AirPack solution at Nova Airways, the CEO of ADSoftware Fred Ulrich said, “Airworthiness follow-up is a must have requirement for all operators who are eventually accountable to their authorities. Nova Airways has stepped up to this responsibility by implementing this system and must be commended for doing this”.
ADSoftware together with Hi-Fly Marketing, its African local sales office, have worked hand-in-hand on this project to ensure Nova Airways receives the best support and understanding possible. This collaboration between the French aviation software developer and publisher and the South African based aviation services firm has been successfully running for 6 years.
