Bombardier has announced the launch of its new myMaintenance App, a tool which supports customers subscribed to the Smart Link Plus connected aircraft programme.

Subscribers to Smart Link Plus can make real-time in-flight data-driven decisions to effectively track, troubleshoot, and manage their aircraft service needs. The app makes aircraft data accessible on any personal electronic device, enabling flight and maintenance crews to quickly and efficiently prioritise and proactively troubleshoot aircraft in-flight fault notifications, increasing an aircraft’s operational efficiency.

Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice President, Services and Support, and Corporate Strategy, Bombardier said: “Bombardier business jet operators expect the most expedient resolutions to their operating issues—and the new myMaintenance App, available exclusively to Smart Link Plus subscribers, is there to provide that peace of mind. The new application is part of our commitment to digital innovations that will benefit our customers as they deserve to experience the time and money savings that big data can provide.”

Health Monitoring Unit records crucial aircraft data

Bookings and installations for Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 aircraft are available now with other aircraft models in development. Operators can receive their Smart Link Plus box installed at a Bombardier Service Centre. The box was recently certified by the FAA for both models. The aircraft Health Monitoring Unit records crucial aircraft data and was developed in collaboration with GE Aviation for Bombardier aircraft as part of GE’s connected aircraft solutions.

Following certification, Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 customers will begin their installations of the Smart Link Plus box throughout this month (August). Certification of Smart Link Plus for Challenger 604, Challenger 605, Challenger 650 and Global aircraft is expected in the coming months.

The Smart Link Plus connected aircraft programme, including the Smart Link Plus box, was first introduced on the Bombardier flagship Global 7500 aircraft and customers continue to benefit from its advanced data-driven capabilities. More than 98 per cent of current Global 7500 aircraft customers have enrolled in Smart Link Plus services and the early-adopters of the new myMaintenance App have already begun to discover the benefits.

Prospective subscribers will be able to schedule a private demonstration of the myMaintenance App or watch a demonstration at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas from October 12-14, 2021.
