PRESS RELEASE: GPMS to Bring Foresight MX HUMS to the EC145 Platform

Teams with Metro Aviation to pursue STC for its Foresight MX solution 

Waterbury, VT – March 7, 2023 – GPMS International announced today at HeliExpo 2023 that it is pursuing a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its industry-leading health and usage monitoring system (HUMS), known as Foresight MX, on the EC145 platform. To achieve the STC, GPMS will work with Metro Aviation, an industry leader in air medical transportation services and helicopter completions in the United States, and a GPMS Certified Installer.

“It’s been a great experience working Foresight MX certification and installation projects with Metro Aviation, and we’re thrilled to expand the relationship to include the EC145,” said John Byus, GPMS’s Director of Sales – Americas. “As an operator, MRO, and completion center, no one knows the platform better than Metro.”

Byus continues, “Nearly 75% of the EC145 fleet is flying in public safety or air medical configurations today.  Aircraft availability is critical for these operators as the lives and safety of the people they serve are dependent on their ability to fly when needed.  With Foresight MX, there is a tremendous opportunity for operators to improve the safety and efficiency of their operations, while improving their service rate as well.”

Milton Geltz, Managing Director added, “Our end game is not only to utilize Foresight MX for post flight analysis, but to alert ground crews in real time using the Outerlink IRIS FDM and Sat Comm system.”

The Metro Aviation and the GPMS teams will be exhibiting in Atlanta at HeliExpo 2023. If you are attending the show and would like to learn more about Foresight MX HUMS, stop by Metro booth C4012 or GPMS booth B3214.
