GPMS, developer of the Foresight MX helicopter health monitoring system, announced that it is adding Wysong Enterprises to its expanding network of certified installers.
“Wysong has outstanding capabilities in helicopter avionics, modifications, and maintenance and we’ve seen their first-rate work installing the Foresight kit on aircraft owned by our mutual customer Tennessee Valley Authority,” said Jed Kalkstein, President of GPMS. ‘Although any qualified technician can install Foresight MX, respected partners like Wysong are a great resource for customers who choose not to install the kit themselves.”
Wysong has already completed installation on three Bell 429s, one Bell 407 and will work on an MD530.
“Wysong is excited to partner with GPMS,” said Wysong Director of Operations Paul Schreuder. “We think predictive helicopter monitoring is where this industry is heading, and we’ve been impressed by the high quality, light weight, and easy-installation of Foresight kit.”
Foresight MX is a next-generation predictive HUMS certified on a range of commercial aircraft, including the Bell 407, 212/412, and 429, as well as the Airbus H125/AS350 B3 and (soon) MD Helicopter’s 530F. Foresight’s onboard system gathers data in-flight and automatically offloads it postflight. The system offers vibration monitoring of engine and drivetrain components, rotor
track and balance, and helicopter flight data monitoring with exceedance alerting.
