The Nigerian charter operator OAS Helicopters has awarded Rusada a contract for the use and implementation of its MRO and Flight Operations software, ENVISION. Odengene Air Shuttle Services Limited (OAS) has operated in the region since 1992. Headquartered in Lagos and operating out of Port Harcourt, OAS recently acquired a new AW139 helicopter for use in supporting oil and gas operations for the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation.
As well as signing up for several of ENVISION’s key modules, OAS are also employing its Flight Operations solution to help organise their flights and crew.
This new deal further strengthens Rusada’s footprint in Africa and will be supported by their MEA team, based in Dubai.
“We were looking for an industry-proven, all-in-one solution for our operation,” says Edwin George, deputy managing director of OAS Helicopters. “In ENVISION we found a system with comprehensive capability and a logical interface that will serve to significantly increase the efficiency of our operation.”
“The awarding of this contract during the current pandemic, is recognition of Rusada’s ability to implement, advise and support our customers remotely,” says Rusado CEO, Julian Stourton. “Work on the project with OAS has already begun, and not only are we finding this remote approach pragmatic, but also very efficient. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with OAS Helicopters.”
“Our focus is to always enable our customers to manage their flights and operations using the services, products and systems that best suit their needs. FDF was one of our first services built using open architecture to allow integration of third-party services,” says Chris Moore, president of Satcom Direct Business Aviation. “Reaching this milestone demonstrates the market’s hunger for integrated services that streamline the workflow. As the digitization of aviation continues to evolve, we will continue adapting and modifying our products to meet the changing requirements of flight crew, ground operations and the business aviation infrastructure.”
