TAS, a Thai-owned and operated helicopter service provider, and prominent player in the Asia-Pacific offshore oil and gas industry, relies on WinAir Version 7 to efficiently and effectively manage their helicopter fleet maintenance programs, along with their overall business operations.
TAS commands a mixed fleet of Sikorsky S-76D and S-92 helicopters. The company entered the offshore helicopter market in 1987 and by 2016, had fully solidified their position as a leading air operator in the Asia-Pacific region. This prompted TAS to research the market for the best aviation management software. They required a dynamic solution with easy to use processes that could help to increase productivity. TAS determined that their organization needed this software to be robust and fully scalable, with a proven track record for streamlining operations and assisting organizations with achieving their business goals.
That’s why TAS selected WinAir Version 7—because they knew that WinAir was trusted by operators worldwide and that the software platform would provide full administrative oversight and allow for organizational growth.
“The primary requirement was to provide quick and accurate recording of maintenance, as we wanted a more efficient tool for our maintenance department,” said Daryl Dixon, Maintenance Manager at TAS. “The simplicity in WinAir gives TAS the autonomy to do things appropriate for the size of our operation. We’ve noticed a significant improvement in efficiency and WinAir’s validation has resulted in an improvement in the accuracy of our reporting.”
With respect to aviation industry praise for WinAir and support for the software, Dixon goes on to explain, “We had four systems that were looked at seriously, but in the end we chose WinAir. This was in large part due to our confidence in the product, which was backed up by references that we spoke to in the industry. I would definitely recommend WinAir to companies seeking an aviation management software solution because they want to see your company succeed with the product and they will remain engaged with you to achieve that end goal.”
WinAir’s Business Development Manager, Jeff Muir, echoed this sentiment: “WinAir harmonizes rather remarkably with any sized operation, and this has a lot to do with the fact that the software was built on a foundation that actually follows specific maintenance processes with exact precision. This, coupled with our proven implementation process, world-class training, and turnkey data migration services, sets the stage for a simple transition to WinAir.”
