  2. ClearPath – Latest Innovations: Optimized Speeds, Fuel Efficiency Dashboard; Contrail Avoidance
    Next, you will learn about the latest ClearPath developments.  Firstly, the speed optimizer that finds the most cost-optimal speed profile for any given flight, based on the set mission target cost-index. As you will see ClearPath uses high-resolution data sources with a high-resolution aircraft performance model, to find the optimal speed in each flight segment that will provide a total cost-optimal speed profile. Secondly, the new dashboard monitoring tool that enables fuel efficiency managers to monitor and validate results for each flight.  Lastly, a contrail modelling and avoidance feature (utilizing a high-resolution humidity forecast) through changing flight levels.  You will see results from a 737 operator which shows significant contrail reductions.

  3. ClearPath Airline Case Studies: Norwegian, Volotea, and Volaris
    Next, with case studies from Volotea and Norwegian, AVTECH experts will share analyses, data, and experiences from implementations of ClearPath on both Airbus and Boeing aircraft.  You will see how the airlines are optimizing each flight and generating up to 5% of fuel and CO2 savings.  The data and analyses show where the most savings can be realized at particular sectors in each flight.  Examples you will see include a 787 trans-Atlantic flight showing how ClearPath was able to direct the pilots to change altitude to take maximum advantage of beneficial jet stream winds over Europe and save 1.7% of cruise fuel during that sector; as well as how Volaris saved 3,150 tons of fuel over the past year.

  4. Aventus Overview and Benefits: Real-Time Automated Optimized Wind and Temperature Data Uplink
    Next, you will see a demo and overview of Aventus which up-links precise wind and temperature data to the aircraft to improve FMC calculations during climb, cruise, and descent. As you will see, Aventus calculates the optimal wind levels to be inserted to best represent the current climb, cruise and descent wind profile for each flight, for optimum efficiency and significant fuel saving. The up-links can be sent directly to the FMC or as a text message to the cockpit.  Aventus utilizes the most accurate high-resolution weather forecasts from the UK Met Office, combined with AVTECH’s patented algorithms, to calculate optimum wind levels.

  5. UK Met-Office Global High-Resolution Weather Data
    Finally, you will see how all AVTECH’s services use global high-resolution weather provided by UK Met Office, and how the weather data used in each computation is unique and tailored for each flight. You will see how AVTECH retrieves this data in real-time to guarantee that the latest and most up to date weather is always used in-flight, ensuring the best flight optimizations. As you will see, the weather data derived from the Met Office’s High-Resolution model has unmatched accuracy and reduces the error between actual and forecast winds to a minimum.

Predictive In-Flight Fuel Efficiency Pilot Guidance Solution for all Flight Phases Demo Webinar [SITA OptiFlight Demo – Climb Out, Shortcut Recommendations Enroute; Flight Data; ML Aircraft Performance Models; 4D Weather; EFB Integration; more]

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 28th September 2023) to see a demo of the unique SITA OptiFlight solution, which brings real-time data science to the cockpit. As you will see, ahead of each flight, OptiFlight utilizes machine learning to build tail-specific predictive performance models for the aircraft, using historical flight data (inc. airline-specific waypoint-to-waypoint tracks flown), plus accurate 4D weather to determine the optimum fuel saving scenarios for all phases of the flight. The fuel saving scenarios are then translated into easy-to-apply tactical recommendations displayed on the pilot’s existing EFB real-time in-flight, (or before the flight via the paper briefing package) providing them with the data needed to request shortcuts from ATC in-flight, optimize speeds and altitudes for the climb-out phase, and more. During the Webinar you will be taken on a demo of SITA OptiFlight from a pilot’s perspective, with a focus on climb-out and cruise optimization. You will also see how, after each flight, actual fuel consumed is compared with predictions for detailed fuel savings reports. The data is then used to update the machine-learning model and further optimize accuracy and efficiency for each future flight.  You will also see how OptiFlight is suitable for all airlines and operators worldwide, requires no additional aircraft hardware or IT infrastructure, and can integrate with all OFP sources, as well as EFFs and EFB Apps, and even paper based briefing packages. Finally, you will see some real-world airline case studies and see how OptiFlight allows them to achieve significant fuel savings, optimize efficiency, and reduce emissions for each flight.

During this webinar, you will be taken on a demo of SITA OptiFlight from a pilot’s perspective. The following SITA OptiFlight modules will be shown:

  • OptiClimb: Delivers a customized climb schedule to save, on average, 5% of fuel burn.
  • OptiDirect: Provision of shortcut recommendations enroute, based on historical tracks flown and with an indication of fuel and time savings.

The Webinar is divided into 3 key sections:

  1. SITA OptiFlight Demo 1: Climb-out optimization using OptiClimb
    The climb phase consumes a large amount of fuel and can be further optimized. As you will see, thanks to machine learning performance models obtained from historical flight data for each tail, OptiClimb processes flight plan information together with accurate 4D weather forecasts to predict fuel burn in tens of thousands of scenarios for each climb-out. It then recommends the most efficient scenario to the pilots.

    As you will see, OptiClimb works for any type of aircraft, flight planning system or pilot briefing solution whether paper or electronic, with no equipment installation or connectivity required. Pilots receive customized speeds, which they enter into the Flight Management System, and which change at different altitudes for each flight.

  2. SITA OptiFlight Demo 2: Cruise optimization using OptiDirect
    Traditionally, pilots can request from ATC enroute, directs to save time and fuel but they often do not have the relevant tools or data in the cockpit to do so. As you will see OptiDirect recommends shortcuts based on historical tracks flown, with an indication of fuel and time savings. The solution also considers wind and temperature forecasts for the flight to recommend those shortcuts that will save the most on today’s flight.

  3. SITA OptiFlight Cockpit Integrations and Airline Case Studies
    Finally, you will see how SITA OptiFlight easily integrates with paper briefing packages and flight planning systems, and with multiple EFB and EFF apps, including SITA eWAS (SITA’s weather app) and SITA Flight Folder (SITA’s electronic Flight Folder). Lastly, you will see some real-world fuel savings examples from airlines who are using SITA OptiFlight.

  • Overview of Honeywell Flight Efficiency and Identifying Advanced Savings
    The Webinar begins with an overview of Honeywell Flight Efficiency, a popular cloud-based, deep data analytics solution, as used by airlines of all sizes and fleet types worldwide (such as British Airways, Japan Airlines, AirAsia, Azul, Air Transat, Wideroe, and more) to establish a companywide fuel efficiency program and equip management and flight crews with specific guidance to pilots, ground personnel and others so that they can make informed decisions regarding fuel loading, taxiing and flight procedures, and plus gauge the impact of decisions affecting fuel economy on other airline priorities, like on-time performance. You will see key features such as the Pilot Connect Mobile App, Dashboards, Data Quality Engine, Advanced analysis, Trajectory Analysis, Statistical Fuel, how to utilize build-in content and drill down to analyse flight events.

    The Honeywell team will then outline how an airline can take a fuel efficiency program to the next level through analysing their unique operations data to identify new ways to save fuel using the Honeywell Flight Efficiency solution.
  • Advanced Use-Case 1: Optimizing Center of Gravity (CoG)
    The first advanced fuel efficiency use case you will see is optimizing the aircraft’s Center of Gravity (CoG). One of the big challenges that airlines face today is knowing exactly how much fuel they could save if they move CoG to the AFT. As you will see Honeywell uses a high-granularity dataset to build a ML model of CoG impact on fuel consumption.  The model is then loaded into the platform to calculate savings.

    The data gathered is the difference between an actual CoG and a most optimum CoG quantified on a per-flight basis in terms of excess fuel. The Aggregated results drive the model.
  • Advanced Use-Case 2: NextGen FMS Savings Tracking, following Upgrade
    Next you will see how the platform assists airlines who are flying Embraer aircraft to verify and measure fuel savings brought in through upgrading the conventional FMS which does not support Cost Index and ECON flight, to the Next Generation FMS (NGFMS) Gold which enables cost index flying for Embraer. You will see how the airline can then run reports and analyse data to show efficiency savings from the NGFMS. 

    The same process can be undertaken for any other fuel efficiency modifications, turning Honeywell Flight Efficiency into a value validation tool.
  • Advanced Use-Case 3: Optimizing Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Approach Procedures
    Next see how Honeywell assists airlines to analyse and fly optimum RNP profiles. Flight data is ingested into the platform and each flight is analysed with respect to the relevant RNP procedure so that compliance is established. By using flight events as filters, an airline user can easily analyse any segment of the RNP procedure and even establish compliance to a segment.  Flying the optimum RNP profiles may not always be possible due to operational registrations, so with this data airlines can analyse and understand why flights are unable to comply to RNP procedures and find ways to optimize operations for future flights.

  • Advanced Use-Case 4: Hong Kong Airport Specific RETO Compliance Project
    Hong Kong Airport are concerned with excessive N1, and therefore issued a requirement that airlines are authorized to perform engine-out taxi operations only if they maintain N1 lower than 40% in certain areas of the airport.  To get authorization airlines are required to implement a monitoring program. You will see how Honeywell assisted their customer operating out of Hong Kong Airport to set up a comprehensive monitoring program allowing the airline to track each flight that goes through the restricted areas storing, among other parameters, N1 data in easy-to-download reports.

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
    In this section you will Learn about the easy integration process of ClearPort which requires minimal involvement of the IT team, and the data that is needed to power the software.  You will see how easy it is to integrate ClearPort into any operations and for the flight crew and everyone in an airline’s team to start using the App – with minimal airline IT support needed.

    As you will see by using FLYHT’s state-of-the-art on-board AFIRS Edge device, an airline will receive all the information it needs to manage turns and improve processes. By integrating with the reservation system ClearPort can automate most above wing timestamps allowing airlines to see all boarding processes in real time. FLYHT can also leverage the ACARS messages an airline is collecting — ClearPort will allow you to view all above wing and limited below wing milestones.  Coupled with the reservation system integration this will give an in-depth view of the turn processes.

  • ClearPort Demo: The Turn Process and Detailed View for a Typical Flight
    Finally, get a chance to see the ClearPort App in action with a demo. By tapping into historical data for all turns, not just turns with delays, the App can capture all processes of each turn and provide an airline’s team with the beacon to be able to make informed and evidence-backed decisions and improvements to improve On-Time Performance and Turn Performance.  You will see how ClearPort can provide answers and help everyone in the organization understand the quality of turn processes. Join FLYHT as they walkthrough the milestones of a typical turn and how real-time alerting allows airlines to solve problems before they turn into costs.

Real-Time Fleet Data Monitoring Platform for Predictive Maintenance, On-Ground Fuel Saving, OTP Analysis, and more Demo Webinar

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 9th March 2023) to see a demo and overview of the powerful and industry unique Fleet Data Monitoring Platform from FlightWatching which connects to the aircraft in real-time, querying live parameters without the need for any modification.  As you will see, the solution uses any type of nose-to-tail data sources from the aircraft: ACARS in real-time, or stored data such as QAR, DAR, SAR. During the Webinar you will see demos of solutions that FlightWatching has developed to tap into the data using innovative algorithms and the latest AI / Machine Learning technology, such as predictive maintenance analytics, on-ground fuel saving analysis, and on-time performance analysis.  You will also see how airlines, MROs, and OEMs can take charge of their own data and embed FlightWatching into third party solutions using APIs or build their own analysis dashboards.  The platform operates in a browser so works on all devices, connecting with the FlightWatching server which collects the data and computes algorithms in real-time, providing results and trends to users. The platform is used by over 20 customers worldwide monitoring over 400 aircraft encompassing all types from legacy to the latest modern aircraft.

The Webinar begins with a short overview of the FlightWatching platform, before discussing particular use cases for different customers.  For example, OEMs will be provided with data to better understand failure modes and develop algorithms to identify precursors of hard failures. MROs will be interested in optimizing their repair costs by scheduling removals to reduce BER (Beyond Economic Repair). Airlines will monitor aircraft health at a competitive price, reduce fuel burn on ground and optimize on-time performance.  Additionally for IT companies, they can see how to integrate FlightWatching real-time fleet monitoring data into their own and third partly solutions.

You will then see demos of the platform and the different solutions FlightWatching provides, from initially logging into the platform and seeing the fully customizable dashboards showing alerts from individual aircraft and the status of the rest of the fleet, then drilling down into the data to view an anomaly or view the data from a particular event, to seeing how to establish different levels of data analysis.  From simple alerts to any potential problems, to building custom reports and data answering questions such as: what is my average time to wait for pushback at a particular airport? How long did the aircraft run an APU? How many spare sparts should we store and where? How do the bleed systems behave in harsh conditions? How often does this fault occur? and more.  You will then see demos of the different innovative solutions developed by FlightWatching using AI / Machine Learning real-time analysis and data driven models including: predictive maintenance, on-ground fuel saving analysis, and on-time performance analysis.

The Webinar is divided into six key sections:

  1. An Overview and Demo of FlightWatching Platform Capabilities and Use Cases
    First you will see a quick tour of the platform and the different use cases for airlines, MROs, OEMs and IT companies.  You will learn about the data sets and how the fleet monitoring platform connects in real-time querying live parameters from each aircraft without the need for any modifications.  You will see an initiallogin to the platform and the fully customizable dashboards showing alerts from individual aircraft and the rest of the fleet whether in-flight or on the ground. Via an APU demo, you can see alerts and trends and drill down further into the data to see specific events (such as an ACARS message) to explain an anomaly in the data.  You can then further drill down into the ACARS message and generate a dashboard to show the aircraft data at that exact moment.

  2. Data Analytics: From Trends to AI / Machine Learning
    This is the more technical portion of the Webinar. It will describe how FlightWatching strategically tackles complexity within data management. Each problem has its own solution whether it be using a statistical, mathematical or machine learning approach. You will see how this approach allows users to set up different levels of data management, from simple alerts to potential problems or anomalies, to building statistical reports and dashboards to answer key operational queries and analyze over time, to using innovative AI / Machine Learning real-time analysis and data driven models.

  3. Platform Demo: Predictive Maintenance with a B787 APU
    Next the demo will deep dive into the backbone of the tool taking a B787 APU use case. The demo will allow you to understand how far users can get into data exploration, customization and how it converts into value. In this part, you’ll see how the intelligence of the platform brings values to stretch equipment dispatch reliability, improve time on wing and reduce maintenance costs. You will see how engineers are alerted to potential problems before they lead to an AOG, and how the data can advise when the component should be removed and repaired or replaced during scheduled maintenance.

  4. Platform Demo: On-Ground Fuel Saving Solutions – APU and Single-Engine Taxi
    Next you will see how real time connectivity to the Aircraft also opens huge opportunities to save fuel. This section will provide insights on the latest innovative approach to detect APU over usage in order to reduce fuel burn and carbon emissions on the ground, as well as optimum single-engine taxi use.  You will see how the platform shows abnormal usage of APU and engines on the ground, leading to savings of up to US $ 200,000 per aircraft per year and over 600 tons of C02. Alerts are auto-generated with overuse of APU.  Additionally, the platform shows the most used airports for Single-Engine Taxi and uses historical data to suggest alternative power sources to the APU to heat or cool the cabin.  Dashboards are generated to easily show the results, the overuse and potential savings. Similar dashboards are generated to show the difference between single engine taxi and dual engine taxi out and the savings that could be generated.

  5. Platform Demo: On-Time Performance Analysis
    You will see how the platform analyses On-Time Performance, so that airlines can see where they are wasting time during their arrivals / turnarounds.  The system is connected in real-time to the aircraft so FlightWatching can monitor in detail what is happening to the aircraft on arrival and departure for each aircraft. Key KPIs can be generated for turnarounds; so, for example, how much time are you taking to open the door on arrival? how much time for cargo loading? how much time for fuel loading? etc.  Airlines can see exactly where they are losing time and adjust accordingly as well as monitor key aircraft systems in real-time such as tire pressures which could lead to an OAG during turnaround.

  6. How Legacy Aircraft are On-Boarded to the platform
    Finally you will see how legacy aircraft (A300, B767, etc.) with less sophisticated data feeds are on-boarded into the platform.  As you will see this is performed whilst the aircraft is flying, successfully using the aircraft’s avionic boxes and systems such as the hydraulic system, engine systems and more.
