São José dos Campos – Brazil, June 7, 2019 – The future of work, the sharing economy, and the ever-evolving digital environment have set the stage for a new business platform that will serve a diversified fleet of aircraft, designated Beacon, unveiled by EmbraerX today. This innovative platform is designed to connect and synchronize 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 innovative Dallas-based air carrier that operates 30-seat Embraer jets out of private terminals.
Beacon aims to unleash high-value interactions and business opportunities to multiple stakeholders within the service ecosystem. 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 personalized, agnostic, and collaborative services initiative.”
“The Beacon platform has the potential to bring connectivity to the aviation services industry in a way that is unprecedented,” said Robert Hamel, Vice-President of Technical Operations, JetSuiteX. “As the launch customer for Beacon, we believe it will enhance JetSuiteX’s operational efficiency and minimize aircraft downtime, thereby driving greater customer satisfaction and enhanced overall performance.”
Through an easily accessible digital web and mobile application (IOS and Android), EmbraerX is inviting companies and professionals to connect with one another in a revolutionary way. The technology triggers a network of accredited providers, fostering real-time collaboration during unplanned maintenance activities, accelerating the return to service of aircraft.
