Monitor and predict future aircraft maintenance events 

Predictive maintenance has for some time been discussed in aviation as essential to improving efficiencies and costs in aircraft maintenance. Assessing the precise locations and dates of aircraft on the ground and using this to predict future maintenance events is core to driving such efficiency and cost improvements.  

Ground Events is a first of its kind tool which enables businesses to analyze the historical maintenance of aircraft, optimize how aircraft are being used, effectively place parts and spares where they are needed, identify retrofit opportunities and more.  

Understand where, for how long and why aircraft are spending time on the ground for maintenance and forecast future events, whether that be c-checks, heavy checks, paint work, retrofits and more.
