Monarch Rolls Out New Competency Software

MRO says the new ELMS Aviation application will aid staff competence and compliance at its facilities in Luton and Birmingham.

Monarch Aircraft Engineering has implemented ELMS Aviation’s competency and compliance software at its main UK facilities in Luton and Birmingham.

The MRO, which now operates as a solo entity following the collapse of Monarch Airlines in early-October 2017, said the cloud-based software system which runs in accordance with EASA regulations will enable it to better manage competence and compliance of its technicians.

Through creating personal profiles, each maintenance engineer is able to build up a demonstration of their competence in the work environment, according to the British software vendor’s website.

Chris Dare, managing director at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, confirmed training and registration has already been rolled out across the business at its two main hangars, where the MRO offers services including base and line maintenance.

John Scale, head of commercial and sales for Elms Aviation, headquartered in Exeter, said: “They [Monarch] recognize the growing requirement across the industry to demonstrate and evaluate personnel competence in a transparent and standardized fashion, a view that is aligned with a regulatory shift towards a performance-based environment.”
