Webinar Overview

Register to attend this Webinar, to see how the new innovative multifunction avionics platform AFIRS (Automated Flight Information Reporting System) Edge+ from FLYHT, provides airlines and operators worldwide, operating any fleet or aircraft, with the on-board tools and the connectivity required to future-proof any aircraft for the next 20 years, and take complete control over the on-board data (QAR, DAR, and more). During the Webinar the FLYHT team will showcase how AFIRS Edge+ is a plug-in upgrade 5G Wireless QAR that can be installed in 5 minutes for both new and existing aircraft, replacing old 2G/3G/4G Wireless AIDs and QARs, and preparing fleets for the future with 4G sunset on the horizon. As you will see, the solution seamlessly flows operational data during all phases of flight to the flight deck or to ground applications.  The data can then be used to enhance any operational analytics needs; from safety to fuel saving, from real-time aircraft tracking and alerting to predictive maintenance, to EFB applications onboard.  Airlines have the option to interface the data with existing third-party apps and software, or with FLYHT’s own suite of AI powered real-time operational tools and Apps.  

Through focusing on the many challenges airlines face with utilizing outdated and traditional QAR / WQAR solutions, you will see how AFIRS Edge+ technology redefines aircraft operational data strategies both onboard and offboard, moving beyond traditional wireless QARs and disrupting the current reliance on ACARS / Telex messaging for connecting aircraft with ground systems.

The Webinar is divided into the following key sections:

  1. Does your airline face the following issues using ACARS and legacy Wireless AID or QAR solutions? If so, you can’t afford to miss this Webinar:
    First, the FLYHT team will talk through some coming problems facing airlines and operators today:

    Wireless AID / QAR systems
    – Wasted line maintenance effort on manual routine tasks such as FADEC downloads, QAR data collection, and FDR downloads following incidents.
    – Slow and unreliable data harvesting impacting on the integrity of your FOQA/FDM programs.
    – Insufficient flight data affecting predictive maintenance analytics.
    – The need to upgrade or replace existing WQARs or AIDs hardware due to 3G sunset and anticipated 4G sunset.

    ACARS systems
    – Issues with VHF coverage, interference, and jamming.
    – Engine warranty risks from data losses due to ACARS problems.
    – The growing use of ACARS messaging that is forecast to reach a breaking point.
    – Concerns over operational disruptions from CPDLC / ATC communication breakdown.
    – Future ACARS upgrade mandates for enhanced Air Traffic Control communications.

    ACMS & Aircraft Based Observations (ABO) reporting
    – Costly changes to ACMS and ACARS system databases; maintenance burdens and delays.
    – Challenges in participating in the IATA Turbulence Aware program and providing crucial AMDAR data for improved weather forecasting.

    Data Loading systems
    – Compliance and cybersecurity concerns with onboard and portable data loaders.
    – Delays in updating navigation databases and other critical software, impacting aircraft readiness.

    Legacy Avionics Cyber Security
    – Concerns over the security of ACARS data and legacy Wireless QARs, AID systems.
    – Challenges in implementing PKI within new and existing aircraft avionics systems.

    Ground Operations aircraft data
    – Lack of accessible flight data to optimize turn monitoring and management.
    – Issues with meeting aircraft turnaround times and managing fuel efficiency due to poor APU management.

  2. Key Benefits of FLYHT’s 5G AFIRS Edge System:
    Next, you will see how AFIRS Edge technology solves all these challenges, providing airlines and operators with the on-board tools and connectivity required to:

    – Modernize operational connectivity that lasts the lifetime of your newest aircraft.
    – Enhance flight safety and operational efficiency with a comprehensive data harvesting solution.
    – Upgrade your QAR/DAR data transmission security with robust Public Key Infrastructure.
    – Reduce reliance on ACARS, enhancing data messaging security and reliability.
    – Ensure compliance with new regulations, securing avionics software and data loading processes.

    The FLYHT team will showcase specifically how the solution assists the following areas:
