Beacon announced that it has signed an agreement with ABS Jets, an executive operator and maintenance organization from the Czech Republic. The agreement is focused on integrating Beacon as its dedicated maintenance coordination platform to accelerate return-to-service time. The operator ran the first maintenance case on April 1st and expects to run over 50 maintenance cases per year, reducing their out-of-service time by 20%.

Developed by EmbraerX, Embraer's market accelerator for disruptive businesses, Beacon is an innovative platform that connects operators, maintenance services, and mechanics in a more agile, collaborative, and efficient way, ensuring the rapid return of aircraft to service. Benefiting from a startup mindset and Embraer's 50 years of experience, Beacon opens a new digital era in aviation maintenance services. Based on network connections, Beacon brings a new dynamic to the maintenance and services ecosystem, being capable of serving any manufacturer, anywhere.

“In this competitive race, we need to adopt digital solutions that focus on empowering our people. We are excited about our partnership with Beacon and support all maintenance stakeholders in being more efficient in bringing planes back to service. Since we started running all our maintenance cases on the platform, we see less miscommunication, less wait-time and more accountability,” said Vladimir Sip, Chief Technical Officer, ABS Jets.

“We are proud to welcome ABS Jets as the first European executive operator in our platform. With Beacon, ABS Jets can easily onboard all their maintenance stakeholders and coordinate efforts across teams. We are not just a software solution. We are enabling digital transformation so that the ecosystem can reduce inefficiencies and keep planes flying in a smarter way. Together with our partners, we are building, today, the future of aviation maintenance and services,” said Marco A. Cesarino, Head of Beacon.

By signing this agreement, Beacon launches its platform in Europe while building awareness of its fleet agnostic approach, as ABS Jets has a mixed fleet of aircraft and helicopters from several manufactures.

ABS Jets expects Beacon’s adoption rate to increase among their partners in Europe and North America. They plan to not only onboard their own team members but also invite their OEMs and field service representatives while expanding the network to better serve their customers. 

Beacon has been paving a position for itself in the digital aviation services industry. By the end of April 2021, Beacon concluded over 35,000 unscheduled cases by more than one thousand users. These numbers are expected to grow as the aviation industry recovers from the COVID-19 crisis.
