Costa do Sol Táxi Aéreo, a Rio de Janeiro-based helicopter operator serving Brazil's offshore and onshore oil and gas industry, has selected SKYTRAC flight data monitoring with real-time exceedance alerts for its S-76 fleet. The technology is developed by SKYTRAC Systems of Kelowna, BC.

“SKYTRAC provides a full service solution with real-time notifications for critical events and comprehensive post-flight data analysis,” said Costa do Sol CFO Alessandro Camelo Neri. “Our operations will benefit from being able to identify emerging issues faster and with greater accuracy.”

SKYTRAC explains its real-time data management is designed to help operators improve safety and maintenance event response times by notifying key contacts of critical in-flight incidents. The company continues to describe how timely identification of maintenance events allows operators to prepare in advance of aircraft arrival and reduce Aircraft on Ground (AOG) times.

In-flight safety alerts allow ground crew to proceed with defined emergency procedures, explains SKYTRAC, as soon as a critical deviation from standard operating procedures is detected.

Founded in 1986, SKYTRAC now has systems certified on more than 900 airframes and its SKYTRAC data management portal is a tool for more than 7,000 global users.
