Commsoft announced that 5 Aero Team is about to become the latest user of OASES – Commsoft’s MRO IT system.
Under the terms of the five year agreement for five concurrent users, Commsoft will build a full OASES hosted system for Warsaw-based 5 Aero Team’s start-up CAMO operations. The OASES modules selected include airworthiness, planning, core and materials management.
OASES (Open Aviation Strategic Engineering System) is designed to combine ease of use with a technical sophistication that allows for the full integration of all maintenance and engineering functions, from inventory management and purchasing to defect control and work scheduling. The hosted program allows easier, lower cost access for small operators by avoiding set-up costs such as server acquisition and third party licensing.
5 Aero Team was founded this year by five engineering managers, including Jacek Rogoski, formerly of Air Italy Polska, Yes Airways and OLT Express Poland. Its Aircraft Acceptance Service – targeted at airlines, leasing companies, private investors and banks interested in purchasing either new or used passenger, cargo or business aircraft – is already up and running and encompasses ground checks, airworthiness/aircraft data reviews, documentation and records reviews, engine runs, title transfers, and acceptance and ferry flights.
The company is currently in the process of applying for its CAMO certification from the Polish Civil Aviation Authority, including ARC privileges for the Airbus A320 family, Boeing 737NG and Classic, Boeing 757 and 767, and the Embraer E-170 and E-190 families. 5 Aero Team can also offer aircraft storage and maintenance facilities at Katowice Airport (IATA code: KTW, ICAO code: EPKT) in Poland.
Nick Godwin, Commsoft’s managing director, commented: “This is great news for Commsoft as it further validates our belief in the vital importance of the independent CAMO and fleet technical management market internationally. We’re looking forward to building a close working relationship with 5 Aero Team. ”
Jacek Rogoski, 5 Aero Team’s managing director added “Our new company strategy for Aircraft Acceptance Service with CAMO was implemented this year, it was important for us to select an MRO IT supplier that not only had an established, internationally recognised system but also an understanding of our specific needs. That’s why we chose Commsoft.”
