Launching in February 2020, MRO Insider says its mobile app will provide an efficient solution to quickly “ping” AOG, parts, detailing and equipment rental such as hydraulic mules or jack stands from a mobile device or desktop computer.
Based on live locations of service providers as well as the aircraft, MRO Insider says users will be able to compare hourly rates, ETA to the aircraft, reviews, and other pertinent information via push notifications without paying broker fees or finder’s fees. The app will run on all devices including iOS, Android, tablets, and desktop computers.
“With the development and launch of our mobile app, business aviation will finally modernize past the phone call and email SOP to connect with service providers,” says Andy Nixon, co-founder of MRO Insider. “Too many people are taken advantage of in our industry; an owner/operator shouldn’t have to pay thousands of dollars to make sure they are covered for one AOG event. All services through our app will ping direct to providers, similar to Uber, that handle the services, eliminating any outrageous 3rd party billing practices.” He continued by adding, “the launch of the app will continue building a company culture based on sustainability and connectivity and our team is excited for 2020 and the future of business aviation.”
MRO Insider also says they are committed to “share the air” with other creatures and the launch of the app will coincide with their tree-planting program in northern Michigan. For every app download, MRO Insider says their team will plant a single tree, with additional tree planting incentives to be announced later this year.
