September 11, 2014  By Carey Fredericks

Set. 11, 2014, Kelowna, B.C. - Skyline Helicopters has chosen SkyTrac’s flight data monitoring (FDM) solution to enhance their fleet operational effectiveness and efficiency and to support their already impressive Safety program.

Skyline serves a variety of utility markets and specializes in flying challenging long line mountain operations, oil and gas missions and heli-skiing operations. By equipping their Bell 212 with SkyTrac’s end-to-end FDM solution (SkyWeb software and the ISAT-200A), Skyline will monitor important engine and gearbox data, caution light status and flight data – streamlining efficiencies, reducing costs and increasing revenues.

Beyond efficiencies and financial benefits, their FDM program has a far greater meaning for Skyline – real-time exceedances and monthly trending reports will directly support their Integrated Safety Management System, adding to their notable safety record.
