Managing the maintenance, safety standards and residual value of VIP and corporate helicopters is a complex undertaking.
There are numerous different ‘mission critical’ components to a helicopter, and each of these might have different maintenance periods.
To manage the complexity of private aircraft maintenance, Luviair has become the world’s first private helicopter fleet company to adopt the Blue Eye software solution from MRX Systems of Luxembourg.
Mairi Lockwood, the Operations & Office Manager at Luviair, explains the key operational benefits of Blue Eye. “The PC version makes it simple to implement a planned maintenance program for multiple aircraft, each with dozens of components and different maintenance periods,” Mairi says, “and the iPad companion product means our pilots can satisfy themselves that their aircraft is in compliance.”
Nigel Watson, founder of Luviair and the company’s Accountable Manager, sees wide-ranging benefits to the software. “In addition to making planned maintenance simpler to organise,” Nigel says, “Blue Eye records also help to maximise the eventual resale value of the helicopter. As we manage the thru-life cost of ownership for our VIP and corporate clients, value protection is the most important factor after aircraft safety and legal compliance.”
