Earlier this month, ATP participated in the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. With over 1,100 exhibitors and attendees from 90 countries, NBAA is the world’s largest and most important business aviation event and the sixth largest trade show in the US. An estimated 27,000+ attendees, vendors and suppliers passed through the NBAA Conference over the course of the week.
ATP’s Spotlight Troubleshooting Solution Debuts At NBAA Conference
ATP was one of six Canadian companies exhibiting in the Ontario Pavilion, in partnership with The Government of Ontario – International Trade Branch. ATP captured the interest of the attendees, resonating with our key messages —reduce AOG (aircraft on ground), control costs, and retain knowledge.
Throughout the week, ATP was very pleased to collaborate with our partner Aviation Technical Publications. We demonstrated the integration of ATP’s SpotLight® advanced troubleshooting solution and Aviation Technical Publications’ service information and maintenance management products. Attendees were fascinated by Aviation Technical Publications’s ability to recognize abnormal findings in a scheduled maintenance check and have that seamlessly link to SpotLight to isolate the problem and identify the repair procedure.
Attendees were keen to learn about SpotLight’s key features and rich benefits as more than just a depot-level maintenance tool; they were particularly impressed with its handheld (on-the-go) portability capabilities, a valuable solution for capturing and protecting critical intellectual property and providing efficient support to customers. One interesting conversation was with a super-yacht company that happened to be visiting NBAA because they share a common executive customer base and similarly sophisticated products, as well as a shared goal of increasing mission availability and reducing expensive call-outs to remote locations (i.e. the ocean).
ATP’s strong partnerships and commitment to customers was reaffirmed at NBAA. Gulfstream, singled out ATP for the great performance of our team on their G550, G650, as well as new G500 and G600 long-range business jets. In combination with the Pratt & Whitney Canada PurePower® PW800 turbine engine series, Gulfstream and Pratt & Whitney are paired to produce the world’s first federated troubleshooting system that allows diagnostic information to seamlessly flow between separate diagnostic databases for the aircraft and engine. This allows technicians to quickly and accurately identify the cause of faults, while retaining independent OEM control over their troubleshooting data.
As a result of the in-depth conversations of last week, ATP has again been recognized as having some of the most advanced diagnostic and troubleshooting technology in the aviation industry. Many leading aerospace vendors have come to rely on ATP’s integrated troubleshooting solutions as a critical part of their customer support strategy, particularly for the demands of high-end executive aircraft. Once again, NBAA 2016, the world’s largest civil aviation tradeshow was a successful event for ATP Technologies and the aerospace industry.
