Rusada are pleased to announce that they are now members of the worlds largest helicopter community, Helicopter Association International. The organisations represents manufacturers, operators and suppliers around the globe. HAI, having developed from small beginnings in the USA has been in operation for more than 60 years supporting the industry, with its biggest event – Heli Expo, providing the world largest Rotary Wing trade show every year.
With several Rotary Wing clients we hope we can spread the word about some of the unique rotary specific tools and benefits provided by Envision to the HAI community at large.
” Supporting rotary wing operations as both a CAMO and a maintenance organisation brings challenges not faced in the fixed wing world.” comments Tim Alden, Commercial Director for Rusada. ” In conjunction with our customer base we have developed and deployed solutions for challenging problems. We have helped deliver true remote operations support for Eurocopter that has been operational for several years now. Stemming out of that project and in support of other clients with other rotary platforms was the need to devise complex penalty life tracking, dependent upon the operational parameters flown during the missions performed by the aircraft. It is extremely difficult to keep track of components who’s utilization is different from the main aircraft if for example heavy payloads are carried or specific roles or landing patterns are undertaken. Envision has been developed to help make tracking this information both simple and retrievable. Its is this kind of functionality we hope that the HAI membership can embrace.”
