Italian Government Gets New Fleet Management System for Fire Fighting Aircraft
Emergency aircraft operator INAER Aviation Italia is implementing the Commsoft Open Aviation Strategic Engineering System (OASES) to operate the Italian government’s fleet of fire fighting aircraft.
OASES will be used to manage Italy’s 19 Bombardier CL-415 water-bombers that are located at Rome Ciampino Airport. The OASES system has approval from FAA, EASA and CAA, and will be used to support all CAMO activities and line maintenance support for the fleet of water-bombers.
“The CL-415 water bomber fleet has many unique characteristics, which require specific monitoring in a MRO IT system and OASES is ideally suited for these. The seasonal nature of the fire fighting operations with their intense periods of line operation and base maintenance pose many challenges and our implementation team will be working closely with INAER’s experts to be ready for these,” said Nick Godwin, managing director at Commsoft.
