Maintenance Management Software!
Do you have the Malibu Advantage yet?
Malibu Aeropsace is excited to announce that our Advantage software is now being used on all maintenance. This software allows our customers to use to view the status of their aircraft during maintenance, see photos of discrepancies, as well as view the status of their aircraft compliance (ADs, SBs, oil changes, etc.) that can be updated anytime by simply entering your Hobbs time within the app. With this one-of-a-kind software system, we are building a database of discrepancies that we will be able to use in the future for many different reasons, including the ability to forecast maintenance costs for any PA46 based off of fleet history and specific maintenance history for any airplane.
Since we have started using this software, we have averaged a savings of over 15% labor during annual inspections and that savings is also transferring to all other repair work as well. For any repair we have done in the past, we now have the ability to see how long it takes us on average, our fastest, and our slowest time, plus we have parts information as well, so estimates are put together automatically and more accurately.
So far we have created almost 900 different discrepancies, of which many have gotten used several times already, and we are tracking nearly 80,000 SBs, SLs, ADs, SIs, etc. on our customer aircraft, all in just the first 4 months!
We have invested a lot of time and money to develop this software into what we believe will revolutionize the general aviation maintenance industry. This system handles nearly every aspect of an annual inspection, (customer contact, inspection checklists, work orders, time tracking, estimates, compliance, logbook entries, project management, and so much more), and it is still growing as we make 1-2 updates to the software per week.
If you are a Malibu Aerospace customer that has had your annual completed since last December and are interested in logging in to our new system to see your aircraft compliance status, contact us and we can send you instructions on how to get the app and log in for the first time. We really appreciate the great support that we get from the MMOPA and PA46 ownership community and we are trying our best to continuously invest in ways to improve the way these aircraft are maintained and the overall ownership experience. If we can improve the ease and accuracy of maintaining these planes, it should help make the fleet stronger and more valuable and if it is good for you, it will be good for us as well. This is our way of saying thank you to all of our customers and MMOPA members that continue to support Malibu Aeropace. Without your support, developments like this would not be possible.
Malibu Aerospace has cooling modifications for your piston PA46. There isn't a plane in the world that couldn't benefit from running 20 to 40 degrees cooler; let Malibu Aerospace help you keep engine wear in check with the M-1 cooling kit. At only $1700, it is the best deal in aviation!
