Pathfinder Aviation signed a contract to integrate 20 Foresight MX systems, GPMS’s enhanced Health & Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) solution. These systems will cover Pathfinder’s mixed fleet of AS350 B2, AS350 B3/H125, H135, and Bell 212 helicopters allowing remote aircraft and fleet monitoring with predictive analytics through a common user interface.
“Pathfinder is an innovative helicopter transport company that demonstrates its commitment to safety and operational improvements,” said Jed Kalkstein, President, GPMS. “Their adoption of Foresight MX across their full, mixed fleet showcases the additional benefits when you implement our system to go beyond HUMS.”
Pathfinder Aviation operates a mixed fleet for a variety of missions in the wilderness areas of Alaska, as well as the specialized operations and logistics solutions they provide worldwide.
“Having an advanced HUMS like Foresight MX on our aircraft is an invaluable addition,” said Rogan Parker, CEO, Pathfinder Aviation. “Foresight MX provides the insight and level of detail to know the health and status of all the aircraft in our fleet and provides us with additional confidence in our operations. It’s game changing.”
GPMS has STCs for its Foresight MX system on a range of helicopter platforms including Bell 407 GX/GXP/GXi, Bell 429, Bell 412/212, the Airbus H125/AS350 B3, and the MD530. The company also has completed the system for the Mi-Series helicopters and expects further STCs for the Airbus H135, the AS350 B2, Bell 206, analog Bell 407, and the Blackhawk in 2022.
