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.
