Today at the MRO Americas conference, Safran Aircraft Engines announced the commercial launch of B.SIde®, its new service to provide remote borescope inspection recommendations in real time.
This innovative service is designed to help airlines technicians speed up decisions during the borescope inspection of engines, to keep their aircraft grounded for as short a time as possible. The company's B.SIde® service also offers complementary distance learning modules to enhance the skills of customers' borescope inspectors.
Customers calling on B.SIde® will receive a turnkey service package that includes the following:
"B.SIde® is an integral part of our new line of support services," said François Planaud, Safran Aircraft Engines Services Commercial Engines Services and MRO, Executive Vice President. "Our long experience and proven expertise in MRO and customer support mean that we can help improve our customers' skills and also monitor their fleets, enabling them to increase operational efficiency and lower costs."
B.SIde® is now being offered to operators and repair firms for civil aircraft engines developed by Safran Aircraft Engines, alone or in partnership.
