Viking Air of Victoria, British Columbia, will use the Avtrak GlobalNet platform to support its factory maintenance tracking program–Viking MX. According to Rob Mauracher, v-p of business development and MRO general manager for Viking, the Viking MX system will allow operators to plan, track and schedule maintenance activities, maintain regulatory compliance and work closely with the OEM in monitoring overall aircraft systems reliability. It will also offer customers with mixed fleets the option of tracking all of their aircraft with a single system. "Having a factory-provided maintenance tracking service is another key component to our overall customer support objective," Mauracher said. "Viking MX will allow us to monitor fleet reliability and assist in forecasting fleet material needs, thus ensuring the highest reliability possible." Viking will be including the Viking MX maintenance tracking service with Twin Otter Series 400 deliveries, as well as offering the program to existing operators of legacy de Havilland Canada aircraft.
