Veteran Avia, the newly formed Armenian airline, has selected ADSoftware’s aviation dedicated software AIRPACK to manage its cargo fleet which operates worldwide.
To assist its expansion plans, the cargo airline Veteran Avia has seen the need for a powerful maintenance software to manage its expanding number of aircraft, bases and stocks. The objective was to find a provider capable of offering both guarantees for reliability and simplicity. The French software developer and publisher ADSoftware has been chosen because of its proven implementation methodology and track record worldwide. An agreement has been signed on May 2012.
Together with Rayyan Air in Pakistan, Veteran Avia is part of the Aerospace Consortium FZE. The UAE based aviation group is focused on aircraft leasing, with fleet of Eastern and Western aircraft specialising in wet lease of both fixed and rotor wing aircraft. Short and long term solutions are provided as well as operation in risky areas and excess cargo aircraft capacity. Veteran Avia was only created in June 2010 in Yerevan - Armenia and operates three B747- 200F and three IL-7TD6. The rapidly growing cargo airline now has hubs in Jedha for two aircraft operated for Saudia airline for Africa and North Europe and one in Sharjah operated in Charter between UAE, Kuwait and Pakistan.
The coordination between Veteran Avia’s project management and ADSoftware engineering team has maintained the focus and the objectives. ADSoftware has already started the implementation of its AIRPACK Fleet Management System and Logistics Solutions comprising of AIRTIME (Fleet management- CAMO), AIRSTOCK (Inventory control - Logistic), AIRDOC (Documentation management), AIRUSER (Security management) and AIRSTAT (Reliability and statistic reports).
Veteran Avia is very much aware that the user’s ability and willingness to adopt the new system will depend in part on the type of training they will receive. This has been carefully thought about and a realistic time frame has been scheduled. The training session will very soon start in Sharja – UAE. ADSoftware will provide an instructor on site for five days. This session will focus primarily on AIRSTOCK (stock inventory, purchase orders, receipts, repairs, provisioning requests…). Following this training, according to what has been achieved, a second session of six days will be planned. Fred Ulrich says “We really believe in a flexible approach and a case to case scenario in terms of training. From experience, this approach is comfortable for users and allows a quicker and greater achievement”
