Cronos goes live with OASES at new MRO operation in South Africa

Cronos Airlines International’s AMO (CAI Aerospace) has implemented Commsoft’s OASES MRO IT system. This is the company’s first active customer in South Africa.

Cronos Airlines AMO operation (known as CAI Aerospace) based in South Africa, performs all maintenance, including C-checks for its fleet of Embraer ERJ-135/145s as well as a BAe 146-200. Its capabilities also include VIP aircraft and a Boeing 737 Classic/NG. Another sister company, AviaSeven (an EASA Part 145 and Part M CAMO located in Athens, Greece) is an existing Commsoft client already supported by OASES under a CAMO contract.

The OASES MRO IT system is structured in a modular format and CAI Aerospace has introduced the Production, Line Maintenance, Materials and Commercial modules in addition to the existing modules currently being used by AviaSeven. The new MRO activities will initially be hosted on AviaSeven’s OASES site but CAI Aero will have its own Commsoft Servicedesk facility.

Nick Godwin, Commsoft Managing Director, commented: “CAI Aerospace’s new MRO operation is an exciting new venture which we’re delighted to be supporting with OASES. Not only is this our first active South African customer, it represented the ninth new addition to the worldwide OASES community in 2016. We are pleased to be working closely with them to ensure a successful operation, following their ‘go live’ in late December 2016.”

Andreas Kaiafas, Exec. President of Cronos Airlines International and CAI Aerospace, commented: “Our OASES system was rapidly implemented in December 2016. OASES gives us full visibility of production tasks in our hangar and provides excellent management oversight and reporting within the company.”
