Seabury Solutions Deploys Alkym to Assist Korean National Fire Agency in Managing Helicopter Fleet Operations and Maintenance
SEJONG-SI, Republic of Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seabury Solutions, a subsidiary of New York-based Seabury Capital Group LLC and the market leader in delivering aircraft M&E and MRO software solutions for the aviation industry, announced a new client engagement with the Korean National Fire Agency (“KNFA”) to deploy the Alkym® Platform as the backbone of the agency’s "Fire Helicopter Operation Information System.”
The newly established system is intended to enable the KNFA’s 119 Air Traffic Control Center (119-ATC) to manage its fleet of 29 helicopters safely and efficiently, including facilitating the integration of operations, maintenance, and flight crew training and management, as well as ensuring the reliability, safety, and quality of helicopters.
“We are honored to have been selected by the KNFA to deploy Alkym’s industry-leading capabilities to power their Fire Helicopter Operation Information System, which will ensure the smooth operation of helicopters in real-time, while supporting the center’s disaster-relief missions across the nation,” commented Kyungik An, Managing Director of Seabury Solutions’ Korean Office.
Seventeen air corps across the country currently perform maintenance individually, making it challenging to procure repair parts in bulk and perform maintenance that requires specialized equipment and capabilities. As a result, the efficiency of aircraft operations has decreased, and maintenance costs have increased. To address these challenges, the KNFA has set out to create a firefighting aviation maintenance division within the next 5 years that will perform MRO work in-house.
A new Maintenance Information System will enhance the equipment’s operational safety by establishing a systematic connection with the “Fire Helicopter Operation Information System.” Furthermore, the implementation of Alkym will enable the agency not only to deliver accurate maintenance-critical information, but also to respond to disasters in a timelier manner by providing immediate helicopter support.
“We look forward to growing our collaboration with the KNFA to support efforts in digitizing their firefighting aircraft maintenance operations and enhancing the agency’s helicopter maintenance management capabilities,” concluded Kyungik.
