Bombardier and CAMP Systems Announce Maintenance Tracking Service Agreement

Bombardier customers to benefit from industry’s best maintenance tracking service

Bombardier and CAMP Systems today announced an agreement that will allow CAMP to assume responsibility for providing maintenance-tracking services for Bombardier business jets.

Under the terms of the transaction, CAMP will also provide service for more than 700 Bombardier business aircraft currently enrolled in Bombardier’s in-house Computer Integrated Maintenance Management System (CIMMS).

“CAMP is the industry leader in providing aircraft maintenance tracking services; so this is a solid step forward for our customers who will now benefit from the best maintenance tracking service currently available in corporate aviation,” announced Dave Orcutt, Vice-President, Customer Support, Bombardier Aerospace, Business Aircraft.

“Bombardier customers will enjoy private access to their maintenance tracking information through an expanded suite of services on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week, via a secure Internet site.

“Bombardier will work closely with CAMP to ensure a seamless transition for our customers and we will continue to provide input with regards to the quality of services for all our business jets,” added Mr. Orcutt.

To support a strong integration moving forward, CAMP is retaining Bombardier teams of CIMMS specialists in Wichita and Montréal, and will offer extensive training seminars at locations worldwide to help familiarize customers and operators with its maintenance tracking systems. “We’re confident that we will offer the high level of technical and product expertise that customers have come to expect from Bombardier Aerospace,” said Ken Grey, president of CAMP Systems.
According to Mr. Grey, his organization is well prepared to begin working with Bombardier customers. “We believe both current CIMMS customers as well as future subscribers will be pleased with our web-based maintenance tracking system and will also benefit from CAMP’s mixed fleet capabilities,” stated Mr. Grey.

Bombardier developed CIMMS in 1994 as an extensive maintenance programming and inventory record tracking service for all Bombardier-built business jets. It provides immediate access to new material, revisions, updates and information on service-related subjects including service bulletins and airworthiness directives.

CAMP has been providing computerized maintenance tracking services for the business aviation market for over 35 years. In 1986 the company pioneered on-line, fully functional, real-time access to its central database of maintenance information via CAMP LINK. It introduced its industry-leading internet access platform in 2001.
