EmbraerX introduces Beacon to combat maintenance interruptions

EmbraerX has introduced a new business platform that will serve a diversified fleet of aircraft, named Beacon.

The platform is designed to connect and synchronise industry resources, the aftermarket supply chain, and aviation services professionals in a more agile and efficient way, to keep aircraft flying.

The launch customer is JetSuiteX, the 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, with positive results.

“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 personalised, agnostic, and collaborative services initiative.”
