After concluding a seamless product implementation this January using entirely remote processes and procedures, including completing a data migration, inventory import, and user training, the MRO is now using the software daily to track and manage maintenance and maintain inventory control.
Established in 2013, Advance Aerospace operates out of Boundary Bay Airport in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. The company works with military and civilian operations and is a Transport Canada and EASA Approved Maintenance Organization. Advance Aerospace is known for its maintenance of the General Electric CT58/T58 engine series. Over the years, the company has diversified its capabilities and progressed into providing support for all dynamic components on the Sikorsky S-61 platform.
Advanced Aerospace and WinAir began their business relationship in 2020 at the Helicopter Association International’s (HAI) Heli-Expo. At the time, the company was handling its maintenance activities using a combination of Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Advance Aerospace identified that it required an integrated maintenance and inventory control solution that could streamline and expedite its maintenance processes, improve part traceability, and allow them to attach and manage documents, and handle multiple currencies. In August last year, the MRO company commenced its WinAir Version 7 software implementation.
“We reviewed multiple products on the market, but WinAir’s browser-based software stood out as the ideal solution for our MRO,” says Darryl Nicolas, Advance Aerospace General Manager. “With WinAir Version 7, we can manage engine maintenance using a template approach, which accelerates processes and saves us valuable time while simultaneously ensuring data authenticity and assisting with maintaining compliance.”
“We are happy that Advance Aerospace is benefitting from an easy transition to WinAir Version 7,” said WinAir Business Development Representative Jason Street. “We look forward to assisting this MRO in reaching its operational goals and building a strong business relationship for years to come.”
WinAir is an aviation management software developed from the hangar floor up. It incorporates processes that follow actual aviation maintenance work steps. The WinAir Version 7 MRO Package comes equipped with all the features and functions that MROs require to improve their maintenance facility—from the initial planning and maintenance activities and through to the final invoicing stage.
