LONDON, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW -- Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) today announced the launch of new mobile applications for the Sikorsky360® Web portal – a proprietary online support capability used by more than 4,000 operators globally. The new portal – known as Mobile360™ – supports Apple®, Android™ and Blackberry® mobile devices and will provide streamlined access to important maintenance information for Sikorsky customers worldwide. SAS is the aftermarket division of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
"Mobile devices have changed the way we do business. As a result of their increased popularity, we have developed new services to offer our customers," said Peter Fuchs, SAS Senior Manager, Support Technology and Analytics. "From anywhere – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – our customers can access their aircraft fleet management information directly from their personal mobile devices. This new feature offers unrivaled convenience and flexibility for maintainers worldwide."
Mobile360™ provides easy access to Commercial HELOTRAC 2X™ Maintenance Management System – a software system that supports Sikorsky's military and commercial rotary platforms as well as other OEM fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
