New business aviation web platform Skynet has signed up global aviation giant Jet Aviation to trial its cost-saving software at the company’s Biggin Hill FBO.
This major endorsement of the Skynet platform comes barely a month after the platform was commercially launched following an extensive development programme.
Skynet has also signed contracts with Austria-based Caeroscene Flight Support, UK aircraft operator and FBO provider Synergy Aviation and two service providers: First Class Cars and Cuisine Air.
Skynet Commercial Director Gareth Cadwell, who describes the software as “a game-changing advance” for the aviation industry said: “We are delighted to have signed up clients in different market sectors, something which signals the value that Skynet brings across the board in terms of accountability, efficiency and transparency to ground handling and associated services.”
Robert Kurz, ceo of Caeroscene Flight Support, said: “Since the implementation of Skynet several weeks ago we already feel an increase in the efficiency of Caeroscene’s flight support operation.”
Skynet gives users real-time, pre-trip information, allowing easy comparison between handling fees and service levels at airports.
It offers value to every element of business aviation operations by using the advantages of web technology to integrate information that is traditionally fragmented and hard to access.
Skynet is initially focusing on flight support companies, said Mr Cadwell. “We should be a no-brainer for them, allowing their operations to run much more efficiently than at present, whilst facilitating better communications with both clients and suppliers.”
Skynet is also in talks with FBOs at the top 100 business aviation airports globally.
Skynet is at EBACE Stand 860, Hall 6. Both Gareth Cadwell and Managing Director Tim Gill will be available for interview. Their team is available for user demonstrations.
