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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
About the Aircraft IT Webinar Series:
Every 2 weeks the Aircraft IT website hosts a different live Webinar, each Webinar hosted by a different IT Vendor. These sessions represent the perfect opportunity to learn about a software solution in a more informal manner and to quickly gain an in-depth knowledge of all the major systems on the market, all from the comfort of your own office or home with no sales pressure.
The IT vendor provides a live software demonstration/masterclass of their solution and explains how it can benefit airlines, MROs, Operators, OEMs, Leasing Companies. Once logged on, online delegates can ask questions via the interactive sections of the Webinar or simply sit back and watch and listen to the demonstration. There are two sessions during the day, each differently times to accommodate all time zones.
Each Webinar session is recorded, and an On-Demand version is then posted back to the Aircraft IT website a few days after the live session to allow you to view the content again with your colleagues. The library of On-Demand Webinar recordings provides an invaluable reference source of Flight Operations software demonstrations from the World’s leading Flight Operations IT Vendors.
