Pros: This software is very user friendly, adaptable. We use multiple templates and formats and the availability to do the things we need is at our finger tips. Customer support is incredible and literally an email or phone call away.

I would recommend this product highly, at the end of the day the aviation industry is stressful enough and your operating system should not be....and CALM is not stressful at all.

Cons: not to many things to say here other than some functions with the Purchase Order system could be a little more detailed.

Overall: My overall experience is great, we deal with this for all functions of tracking , accounting , inventory ,purchasing and parts movements. It is my daily tool, and it always stays sharp.

Dear Carlos,

Many thanks for your review.

I notice that you are not satisfied with the publication portion or our software.

Please be aware that we have a stand alone product named PDP (Publication Distribution) which does control revisions as well as the distribution history of the manuals.

Please advise if you are interested in more information.

Pros: It's ease of use and inventory history. CALM reporting gets the job done and tracks component history well. The status report is easy to read. Overall, good price, easy to use and great service.

Cons: Perhaps there is an upgrade available that I don't currently have access to; but I would like to be able to scan documents electronically and attach them to the component.

Would like to see more reporting options for forecasting.

Ie) Abilty to download into Excel rather than just a PDF document.

Ability to choose only certain tasks like all NDI testing or, all ADs etc.

Overall, good price, easy to use and great service.

Hello Denise,

Many thanks for your review,

You are correct regarding document scanning for Components. Presently they can only be scanned to attache to Inventory items but this feature will be included shortly.

Not sure that your are using the latest reports as most are exportable to anywhere including Excel.

Part, Component, and Bulletin Searches can give you any or all immediatley by simply entering the PN or refreshing all.

Give us a call at any time for instructions on how get a better idea of how the above thoughts are accomplished.

CALM systems review for Heli USA Airways

Ease of Use

4 / 5
Customer Support

Comments: I have used the CALM system for our aircraft tracking at Heli USA Airways since before I got here in 2012 and I have found it easy to use, learn and to update information as needed for our purposes here. Now, a couple of the detractors that I have found are a couple of redundancies with inputting aircraft landings and starts on the base screen. If an individual isn't properly trained they can easily mess up the starts or landings if they don't go through the whole screen on the base entry screen and just put the starts in on the second screen. They will be added the same as the landings which for our operation here or other tour operations is usually not the same and you have to do an admin correction on the edit screen.

Easy to add items into inventory when following the prompts or the tech manual and moving the parts around as needed is fairly easy after the first couple of times then easier to teach the other people you have working on the system, with the Lead or DOM just checking in the morning to ensure it was all done correctly from the previous night.

I have not had any issues with the customer service when I have had to call with a question that I couldn't find in the tech manual and between the both of us we got it figured out and it was more than likely going to be added as a temp change or change to the manual because someone will run into the same problem along the way and hopefully our fix helps them along the way also.

Pros: The system is very user friendly with many different modules that allows the program to grow as your business does.

I have used ATP, Camp, Cescom as well and the flexibility of CALM allows us to stay on top of our customers needs faster and more economically.

Cons: Hard to archive old aircraft data

Overall: I would recommend this product for any flight dept or maintenance facility that wants a great tool for keeping track of their fleet and forecast upcoming inspections or maintenance

Comments: We have been a long time user of CALM and because of the unique aircraft we operate finding a software solution is a challenge. CALM may not have been the perfect solution for round engine aircraft built in the 1950's but their team helped us work through the challenges and as we have progressed in to the turbine and jet age adding those aircraft to the system has been fairly painless.

Comments: The aircraft run out sheets are easy and intuitive to use, adding flight time and generating reports is easy. We do not use the stores control component, too hard and complicated, no support for bar code. Overall I would easily recommend CALM to any organization that needs to have an electronic copy of maintenance records.
