Live Aircraft Data Monitoring Platform for Predictive Maintenance, On-Ground Fuel Savings, and OTP Analysis Demo Webinar [FlightWatching Platform Demo: Optimize Turn-Around Time and Performance; Reduce AOGs; Create Custom Alerts and Dashboards; more]

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 7th March 2024) to see a demo and overview of the powerful and unique in the industry, Live Aircraft Data Monitoring Platform from FlightWatching, which connects to the aircraft in real-time, monitoring and querying all the data coming off the aircraft. As you will see, the platform uses any type of nose-to-tail data sources from the aircraft: ACARS in real-time, or data such as QAR, DAR, SAR or, for legacy aircraft, using the aircraft’s avionic boxes and systems. During the Webinar you will see demos of solutions that FlightWatching has developed to tap into and drive value from the data using innovative algorithms and the latest AI/ML technology, including:

  • Real-Time On-Ground Fuel Saving and Cabin Readiness: How to save fuel during ground operations; Optimize APU performance with live detection of APU over runs at the gate; how to achieve desired temperatures for boarding at optimum costs and carbon footprint.
  • Real-Time Turn-Around Optimization; OTP Analysis: Perform remote real-time pre-flight checks for potential AOG problems, inc: low water levels, inadequate tire pressure, etc.; On-Time Performance analysis for key KPIs such as: how much time is taken for cargo loading or fuel loading? Where are airlines losing time?
  • APU Predictive Maintenance Analytics: Reduce unscheduled APU removals and maintenance costs. Engineers are alerted to potential problems before they lead to an AOG.

As you will see the platform operates in a browser so works on all devices, connecting with the FlightWatching server which collects the data and computes in real-time, providing results and trends to key staff at airlines, operators, MROs and OEMs. Additionally, users can configure custom reports, dashboards, real-time analyses, data driven models, set up alerts, and can choose to display results for each aircraft or an entire fleet.

The Webinar begins with an overview and demo of how the FlightWatching platform optimizes the use of power sources on ground to reduce jet fuel costs for sustainable turnarounds. You will see that the platform not only saves fuel and reduces the carbon footprint but also helps cabin readiness for boarding at the desired cabin temperature with the optimum energy consumption. Plus, you will see complementary modules to ensure departure on time depending on an airline’s specifics.  Next, MROs will be interested in the next section showing how to optimize repair costs by scheduling APU removals, reducing APU BER (Beyond Economic Repair). As you will see airlines can now monitor APU health at a competitive price and benefit from a suite of tailored services as part of Revima APU Predictive Care. Finally, you will see how the platform utilizes machine learning modules to deliver an unmatched predictability level of performance. You will see how airlines, operators, MROs and OEMs can take charge of their own data to set up different levels of data management, from simple alerts to potential problems, to building statistical reports and dashboards.  

The webinar will alternate between presentations showcasing key features and the value of each solution, followed by a demo showing how the system works and the user interface.

The Webinar is divided into five key sections:

  1. Revima & FlightWatching by Revima: World Experts in Ground Assets
    First, an overview of Revima and FlightWatching. As you will see, from expertise in Landing Gears and APU MRO expertise to digital suite of solutions, Revima and FlightWatching by Revima provide a unique set of services guaranteeing optimum ground performance, and sustainable turnarounds.

During the Webinar KeepFlying experts will show how their platform easily integrates with existing ERP, MRO/M&E systems and other digital data sources, plus uses LLM technology to extract and ingest crucial information from additional vast maintenance, airworthiness, and operational datasets, even from scattered or poorly formatted data. You will then see Digital FinTwin demos showing use cases for airlines, lessors, and MROs on how this data, can be used to model future scenarios, including increasing maintenance slot profitability, optimizing inventory and spare parts, minimizing aircraft / engine lease redelivery costs, and optimizing hangar and shop visits including task cards; as well as specific aircraft and asset revenue and trading scenarios such as lease extensions, part-outs, and P2F conversions.  You will also see a demo of the new ChatGPT ‘SkyBot’ and how it interprets Airworthiness and Maintenance back to birth records in a matter of minutes to optimize aircraft transitions or assist to evaluate the applicability of any modifications and their commercial impact.

KeepFlying® experts will then demo two Digital FinTwin®solutions. Firstly, you will see the FinTwin® Aircraft or Engine Owner / Lessor Edition which generates scenarios used to maximize the revenue potential for and mitigate potential risks to an Asset over its Remaining Useful Life (RUL). For example, what will happen if maintenance checks are reduced, or the aircraft is flown at a higher thrust rating, or in a more corrosive environment? How will that effect RUL, as well as impact key factors such as LLPs, maintenance reserves, etc. How does this impact redelivery of an Engine given the contractual redelivery conditions that the asset needs to comply with?  You will also see how the solution optimizes inventory and spare part planning and costs. Secondly, you will see the Edition, which allows MRO Facilities to model different hangar and shop visit scenarios, such as variations in work scopes and non-routines, ahead of the arrival of the aircraft, engine or components, predicting scrap rates of components before the Engine comes in to shop in order to plan ahead, maximize profitability and reduce turnaround time.

The webinar is split into six key sections:

  • Overview of KeepFlying® FinTwin® and Airworthiness & Maintenance Data LLM Ready

Real-Time Flight Turnaround Optimizer and Process Management App Demo Webinar [Real-Time Alerts to Problems; Data-Driven Analysis to Improve OTP; Optimize Efficiency – APU Burn Analysis; CASM Reduction; ACARS and Systems Integrations; more]

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 25th May 2023) to see a demo and overview of the nextgen real-time flight turn process management App: ClearPort from data and connectivity specialists FLYHT.  As you will see ClearPort is specifically designed to provide all key personnel for each flight (pilots, flight crew, airport leader, OCC, dispatch, gate, maintenance, etc.) with real-time, automated progress reporting of each turn, and customized alerts to any problems, or potential problems; before they happen, thereby limiting unmet aircraft at the gate, and optimizing the entire turn process.  You will also see how ClearPoint can assist an airline to lower its cost per available seat mile (CASM) through optimizing the efficiency of each turnaround, including monitoring APU fuel burn at the gate, and minimizing the amount of time needed for a turn. Plus, you will see how data analytics provides airlines with the necessary tools to analyse the entire turn process over time and evaluate which portions are being met successfully and which need to be improved, even if there is not a delay; for example, catering loading, or bridge driving thereby optimizing future OTP.  The data additionally provides airlines with evidence to push the airport and external contractors to deliver a more optimum service.

As you will see, ClearPort is suitable for all airlines of all sizes and requires minimal airline IT support.  The App integrates with key systems such as ACARS messages from the aircraft allowing all personnel to see live status such as delays in-flight, or holding time, or auto-updates on the ground. Additionally, integrating with the airline’s reservation system allows ClearPort to automate most above wing timestamps showing the boarding process in real-time. Plus, by using FLYHT’s state-of-the-art AFIRS EDGE 5G WQAR/AID solution on-board the aircraft, ClearPoint receives all the data it needs to fully manage the airline’s turns and improve processes.

The Webinar is divided into the following six sections:

  • The Challenges Facing Airlines in the Turnaround Process; ClearPort Intro
    First, we will dive into real and impactful problems that airlines face, such as Catering Loading, APU Burn at Gate, and Unmet Aircraft, and how ClearPort can help. The lack of visibility into these controllable processes results in unnecessary CASM increases. The impact of these issues can easily result in millions of dollars in fuel being wasted.  Additionally, due to lack of visibility and technology, the airport turn process has been stuck in a cycle of reactive actions that often take place long after a delay has occurred. And because real-time information isn’t readily available, this leads to many unproductive conversations that focus on who’s to blame for a delay rather than focusing on the processes that are not under control.

    You will see how ClearPort can solve these problems by having the ability to see ALL data from a turn process with real-time alerting across the fleet. We solve the problem of the lack of data by helping your organization capture every single process of the turn. 
  • ClearPoint Overview – A Clear Window into the Turn Process
    Powered by AWS and a part of FLYHT’s JetBridge software suite, ClearPort gives airlines the tools to fix the problem now rather than trying to figure out what happened in the past. You will hear a deep dive into quantifying the cost of delays, CASM reduction, and how to understand what processes are in control and not in control. As you will see ClearPort gives airline’s the tools to know what’s happening at every gate, no matter where they are located.

    The solution to the complex problems is to look at the entire turn process in order to evaluate which portions of the turn are being met successfully and which ones need to be improved. ClearPort enables airlines to look at all portions of the turn in real time allowing key staff to act before a delay occurs and to see which processes are under control even if there is not a delay in place. ClearPort takes a two-pronged approach to improving OTP and Lowering CASM – outlined in the key features next.

  • ClearPoint Key Features 1: Real-Time Alerting
    The unique alerting engine allows airlines to customize alerts for processes that it is focusing on like APU shut off or when the ground handlers are late to the gate. These alerts are sent to leadership in time for them to get to the gate and fix the problem before costs or delays are incurred. FLYHT’s easy-to-use apps are available on the Google Play or Apple Store so that everyone can see how each turn is progressing. Once the expectation has been set with third-party contractors that each turn will be monitored, performance will improve across the board.

  • ClearPoint Key Features 2: Turn Process Improvement Focus
    For an airline that is operating with an on-time performance of 79.8%, airline management would normally focus on the 20.2% of the turns that result in a delay. However, ClearPort allows airlines to even see the processes that need attention during the turns but that do not reach the delay threshold. Airline’s often get caught in the trap of assuming that because a flight left on time, it therefore did not have issues that needed to be addressed. For off peak times, the load factor alone may allow an airline to get out on time even though processes are not followed according to standard. For example, most airlines do not look at bridge driving as something that can cause delays unless there is a significant bridge malfunction. Once an airline knows how long it takes for certain bridges to drive, it can now build that milestone into its turn and monitor its performance. Airlines can use this information as evidence to push the airport to improve the airport conditions. Airlines can also set a standard with 3rd party contractors on when certain processes, like water and lavs, need to occur. If these standards are not met, the airline can hold the contractor accountable even without an actual delay occurring.

  • ClearPort Easy Implementation – In-House Subject Matter Expertise
