Partnership Boosts Time and Cost Efficiencies for Aircraft Operators
Two companies with complementary software and services for managing maintenance, MROinsider and New Zealand-based FlightCert, announced a teaming agreement which creates a new option for operators.
Andy Nixon, MRO Insider’s Vice President, explains, “While pursuing our goal of increased maintenance efficiency and transparency, we saw a special opportunity. FlightCert offers customizable maintenance tracking software, which has a clean, user-friendly interface and an attractive price point. The companies share the goal of providing greater maintenance value through software. In many ways, it is a perfect partnership. As a team, we offer Part 91 and 135 operators a new service by first, anticipating maintenance events (FlightCert) and second, obtaining timely, competitive quotes (MROinsider).”
FlightCert is a cloud-based aircraft maintenance tracking program designed by aircraft engineers. The software tracks components and inspections based on cycles and flight/calendar times. FlightCert stores flight and maintenance histories. If aircraft ownership changes, the full history transfers with the title. FlightCert subscriptions are billed annually, with a rate of NZ$550 (approximately US$400). Rates decrease with additional aircraft to NZ$90 (approximately US$70) per aircraft for a fleet of over 30.
Founded in 2016, FlightCert has over 1,000 aircraft registered in Australia and New Zealand. The company prides itself on 100% customer retention and is looking forward to US expansion.
Jeff Shearer, FlightCert founder, added, “FlightCert is looking forward to joining forces with MROinsider.com to provide cost-effective, intuitive maintenance tracking software tools. For a single aircraft or an entire fleet of corporate jets, FlightCert has the capability to manage all maintenance tracking requirements: inspection schedules, component lives, and out-of-phase maintenance. ADs and Services Bulletins are tracked and users notified by software flags and email.
MROinsider.com launched in October 2017 with a goal to increase efficiency and transparency in the process of maintaining aircraft. The website allows aircraft owner/operators to create a free profile and request maintenance quotes from facilities electronically. This process includes uploading a maintenance tracking report or equipment list. Facilities can submit quotes to owner/operators and have a profile page that showcases their company’s capabilities. In their first six months,
MROinsider.com has nearly 200 registered aircraft and 35 maintenance providers.
