Cessna and Camp Systems have entered into an agreement under which Camp has taken over the airframer’s Cescom maintenance tracking business. “This is a long-term relationship between Camp and Cessna,” Camp CEO Ken Gray told AIN. “It is still the factory program with the same people in place. This is a good situation for customers because we’re upgrading the Cescom system with our technology.” Gray said the changeover is transparent and does not require the end user to do anything. “The end user will have all the same options such as access to service centers and publications.” Camp also supports Dassault, Bombardier, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Pilatus, Piaggio and Boeing Business Jets, so operators with different aircraft in their fleet will be able to use a single system for maintenance tracking. “As we move forward, Cessna customers will have access to additional features developed for Camp.” Camp paid Cessna $50 million for Cescom, according to the Textron 1Q financial report.
