AMOS selected by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation

Swiss-AS and its Miami based AMOS Business Unit within Lufthansa Systems are delighted to announce that Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has selected AMOS (Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering System) to support the certification process for its new MRJ90  Regional Jet.
“We are very proud that Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation could see that AMOS can help manage the critical certification process for their new regional jet,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.

Unique use of AMOS for MRJ90 for Flight Testing

Although AMOS has been developed for airline maintenance departments and MRO companies, the high configurability of the system means that it can be configured to manage the unique pre-production certification requirements.

AMOS will be used to manage and support the flight-testing process in the U.S. taking place at the Moses Lake flight test centre.
With the implementation of AMOS at Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation the company expects to further streamline their flight testing and certification process of the MRJ90 helping to bring this next generation aircraft into operation as efficiently as possible.
