Chrono Aviation Goes Live with Rusada’s ENVISION

Canadian charter airline Chrono Aviation has deployed Rusada’s ENVISION as its airworthiness and maintenance solution.

Chrono Aviation provides charter services from its bases in Montreal, Quebec City, and Rimouski to destinations across Canada and the U. S. After nine years in operation, they now have a fleet of 14 aircraft ranging from Pilatus PC-12’s to Boeing 737’s. Chrono will also soon be adding a 737-800 to the fleet, its largest aircraft to date.

Chrono performs most of its maintenance in-house through subsidiary WAAS Aerospace, who also conduct extensive third party work. The company are currently constructing a new 66,000 sq ft hangar at Montreal Saint-Hubert Longueuil Airport to accommodate recent growth.

Rusada worked closely with the teams at Chrono and WAAS throughout the deployment project to ensure a successful go live on 8 of ENVISION’s modules. Chrono will use its Fleet Management module for continuing airworthiness and maintenance planning, Base, Line & Component Maintenance modules for MRO execution, and Inventory Management for its warehouses. It will also use ENVISION’s Human Resources, Quality & Safety, and Finance & Accounting modules to support these functions.

The operator becomes Rusada’s first customer in Canada.

“We have experienced significant levels of growth over the last five years and as such needed to upgrade our maintenance information system to manage our larger fleet and increased MRO activities,” comments The project sponsor, Dominic Cayouette, PRM/DOM at WAAS Aerospace. “We were looking for an advanced and modern solution that was cost-effective at the same time. In ENVISON we found one software that could do it all and be the foundation for our continued growth.”

Julian Stourton, CEO at Rusada said: “Chrono Aviation is the latest in a long line of exciting companies to select ENVISION as their software of choice. Both the teams here at Rusada, and at Chrono and WAAS, have done an exceptional job in getting the system live despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. I am very proud of our continued success in what has been a difficult 18 months for the industry and look forward to next year which promises to be even better.”
