Heli-Expo Dallas: Firehawk helicopters will use maintenance management software provider Flightdocs to help it improve its maintenance tracking, inventory and forecasting between its two bases in Leesburg, Florida and Boise, Idaho.
Firehawk operates nine Sikorsky Black Hawks, both the S-70 and UH-60, and five Airbus H125 Astar helicopters. In addition to aerial firefighting, it also engages in heavy lift, film and TV, and R & D flight testing.
Bart Brainerd, president of Firehawk Helicopters, stated: “We spent a significant amount of time analyzing different options available for maintenance and inventory management software, and we are pleased to announce our decision to partner with Flightdocs. With a fleet of 14 aircraft, 65 employees, and 2 different bases, we were searching for a platform that would give us real-time insight into our operation and would help streamline our daily processes and tracking. This will bring significant efficiencies into the operation.”
Rhiannon Silvashy, VP of sales at Flightdocs, added “With the release of Flightdocs HMX, our product, service, and pricing is positioned perfectly to support operations like Firehawk. Maintenance planning, work orders, compliance, inventory and purchasing are fully integrated, and included under one subscription.
