Aerogility delivers phase-1 system to Boeing UK TLCS programme

14 Jun 2012

London, UK.

Aerogility is pleased to announce the delivery of phase-1 of the Aerogility fleet planning system to the Boeing Chinook Through Life Customer Support (TLCS) programme supporting the Royal Air Force (RAF) Chinook fleet.

The Chinook TLCS programme provides long-term support to the RAF fleet, guaranteeing a contractual level of serviceable and available aircraft to the forward fleet. Under contract to Boeing, in phase-1, the Aerogility team have implemented a holistic model of the TLCS fleet sustainment process. The TLCS fleet manager utilises the model by creating a range of sophisticated what-if options to schedule critical maintenance and modification activities. The what-ifs drive realistic simulations of the fleet in operation, enabling the fleet management team to conduct in-depth assessment of their plans and the impact on fleet availability and capability levels.

The UK’s Chinook fleet comprises 46 aircraft with a further 14 entering in to service, starting in 2013. Boeing has a long-standing relationship with the UK Ministry of Defence, of which the TLCS programme has played a key part over the past seven years.
