SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil - EmbraerX's new business platform Beacon will serve a diversified fleet of aircraft the company announced last week. This platform is designed to connect and synchronize industry resources, the aftermarket supply chain, and aviation services professionals in an efficient way to keep aircraft flying.
The launch customer is JetSuiteX, a Dallas-based air carrier that operates 30-seat Embraer jets out of private terminals.
The platform is initially focused on providing solutions to unscheduled aircraft maintenance interruptions. Tests have been conducted in several places since mid-2018, and Beacon proved to fulfill the main aspirations of aviation service communities.
“Beyond its broad capacity to meet the needs of existing aviation systems, Beacon was also designed to account for the future of urban air mobility,” said Antonio Campello, President & CEO of EmbraerX. “The JetSuiteX spirit of innovation pairs well with Beacon’s purpose, and we are thrilled to have them onboard with this personalized, agnostic, and collaborative services initiative.”
According to EmbraerX, the technology, which is available digitally and on mobile with iOS and Android, triggers a network of accredited providers, fostering real-time collaboration during unplanned maintenance activities, accelerating the return to service of aircraft.
