Cranfield Aerospace Solutions (CAeS) partner with Tracware to implement Aerotrac, their comprehensive business process control software. This strategic move is set to enhance operations, streamline processes, and ensure regulatory compliance across the organisation. 

CAeS, a UK-based aviation pioneer which is developing world-leading scalable and adaptable hydrogen propulsion systems, has selected Aerotrac to manage and optimise its aircraft management, part 145 maintenance, manufacturing, and general operations. Aerotrac’s comprehensive suite of features provides a robust solution tailored to meet the complex needs of the aerospace industry. 

Tracware’s Aerotrac software is renowned for its user-friendly interface and powerful functionality, making it an ideal choice for organisations aiming to enhance their operational control and efficiency. 

Karl Robinson, Head of Supply Chain at CAeS, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: “Aerotrac moves Cranfield Aerospace Solutions forward by integrating several discrete legacy systems onto one platform. We selected Aerotrac as the optimum system to best manage our existing manufacturing and aircraft maintenance needs, and to support our future growth as Project Fresson evolves to deliver zero emission, hydrogen powered flight to airlines and operators around the world.” 

James Maley, Commercial Director at Tracware said “We are pleased to partner with Cranfield Aerospace Solutions. It’s clear that CAeS are leading innovators in the aviation industry, and we are confident Aerotrac will provide significant value to their operations. I look forward to seeing Aerotrac go-live in their facility soon.”
