Airbus has announced United Airlines as the latest US airline to connect to Skywise, following a recently signed agreement. United will leverage Skywise to enhance all aspects of its maintenance and engineering operations on its Airbus fleet.

            With flexible and visual tools, Skywise enables airlines to store, access, manage, and analyse data more efficiently while also benchmarking against other airline users’ trends. Skywise provides all technology elements in one place, including data warehousing, visualization, alerting, and even machine learning packages, allowing United and other airlines to nimbly develop and deploy their own analytical products. In addition, Skywise seamlessly connects with the data integration platform, Palantir Foundry. United began using this platform in 2018, and the combination of Palantir Foundry and Airbus’ Skywise will provide United with the data and tools to enhance its operational reliability.

The Skywise Health Monitoring (SHM) application is gaining momentum amongst airlines with SriLankan Airlines now joining Allegiant, Gulf Air, Indigo, Jazeera, and La Compagnie, to become the first South Asian customer to select SHM for its operations. Used as well for the Airbus Beluga operation, Skywise Health Monitoring supports maintenance and engineering teams, saving them time and enhancing efficiency. By prioritising events, correlating aircraft events with the proper documentation and giving a view on operational impacts, Skywise Health Monitoring secures the aircraft dispatch, reduces the risk of operational interruption and lowers the impact of unscheduled maintenance. Natively interfaced with Skywise Predictive Maintenance and Skywise Reliability, it offers a seamless experience on fleet performance.

Accenture, Capgemini, FPT Software, IBM, and Sopra Steria have signed agreements with Airbus to become early adopters of the Skywise Partner Programme. As part of the programme, these world-leading companies will benefit from dedicated training and certification so they develop more robust, richer applications within Skywise on behalf of an airline. Certified partners will have access to their own working space on Skywise and to additional platform features.


Boeing has announced that Air Peace and EnterAir have joined a global roster of 105 Airplane Health Management (AHM) customers. Boeing AnalytX powers AHM to provide customers the real-time maintenance and engineering support necessary to make operations decisions for their Boeing aircraft. Amber, Go2Sky, Landry’s, and Metrojet join a total of 336 customers using Boeing Maintenance Performance Toolbox to digitally access their fleet’s real-time maintenance data and essential engineering and certification information.


Flatirons Solutions has announced a new long-term agreement with Rolls-Royce for authoring, illustration and Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) managed services along with access to leading-edge CORENA Suite products for content production and viewing.

            Large aviation and defence manufacturers like Rolls-Royce produce or revise thousands of maintenance and operating publications each year.  Publications must be delivered concurrently in multiple specifications like S1000D, ATA iSpec 2200, or MIL-SPEC, and Flatirons Solutions is one of the few companies which are able to provide both the managed service expertise as well as the software platform to provide those services.

            As part of this newly announced partnership, Flatirons will provide broad-based content services and CORENA Suite technology to ensure that production, delivery, end-user customer experience and access to technical publications is seamless for both Rolls-Royce customers and internal users. CORENA Suite software is packaged as part of this agreement and includes the CORENA Pinpoint 7 Interactive Electronic Technical Publications (IETP) viewer, the CORENA Insight Business Process Management (BPM) mobile forms and workflow engine, and the CORENA Knowledge Center Common Source Database (CSDB).


FLYdocs recently signed a 10-year contract with Regional Jet Center, part of the KLM Group, for the ongoing management of their aircraft maintenance records across a fleet of 49 Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft. Using the cloud-based FLYdocs platform, Regional Jet Center will have access to a centralised digital replica of all aircraft technical records back to birth.


IFS has been selected by Revima to provide its IFS Applications 10 to drive Revima’s international expansion and support its complex maintenance operations. Revima is currently in the process of establishing a new MRO facility in Thailand that will become operational in early 2020 and will provide MRO services for landing gear to customers in the Asia Pacific region (see MRO Management, June 2019).

Previously running separate solutions for its APU, Engine Parts Repair, and Landing Gear processes, Revima will reap a number of benefits from unifying their business processes on the IFS platform, including:

•           Ability to support its complex MRO needs, including workshop monitoring and capital asset pricing modelling (CAPM), using standard functionality of IFS Applications

•           Best-in-class user experience that empowers staff with user-friendly and intuitive capabilities

•           Open and flexible technology platform that empowers Revima to add cutting-edge technologies such as mobility and IoT to evolve maintenance operations into the future
