Costa do Sol Táxi Aéreo, which serves Brazil’s offshore and onshore oil and gas industry, will also utilize SkyTrac’s real-time exceedance alerts for its fleet of S-76 aircraft.

Rio de Janeiro-based Costa do Sol Táxi Aéreo recently selected SkyTrac flight data monitoring (FDM) for its Sikorsky S-76 fleet. The company, which serves Brazil’s offshore and onshore oil-and-gas industry, will also use SkyTrac’s real-time exceedance alerts.

By notifying key contacts of critical in-flight incidents, the SkyTrac system helps operators improve safety and maintenance event response times. Identifying maintenance events in a timely manner helps operators prepare for aircraft arrival and reduce AOG times, SkyTrac said.

Ground crews will receive in-flight safety alerts, and they can start emergency procedures as soon as an issue is identified. Additionally, those who use SkyTrac’s FDM can access a post-flight data analysis, as well as automated in-flight and post-flight FDM file downloads.

“Costa do Sol is committed to meeting and exceeding industry safety standards,” said company CFO Alessandro Camelo Neri. “SkyTrac provides a full-service solution with real-time notifications for critical events and comprehensive post-flight data analysis. Our operations will benefit from being able to identify emerging issues faster and with greater accuracy.”
