*This Webinar is for airlines and operators only.
Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 4th May 2023) to see the latest advances in automated real-time cockpit flight efficiency, with a demo and overview of the popular ClearPath solution from AVTECH – the real-time flight path / profile optimization tool. During the Webinar, the AVTECH team will walk you through the tool for a typical flight, as well as showcasing the new features which additionally notify the pilots about weather hazards along the route, such as significant turbulence and temperature exceedances, and proposes the cost-optimal flight path to avoid them. As you see ClearPath uses existing aircraft on-board technology and data link technology, such as ACARS, FMC, Cockpit Printer, EFB solution, etc., so requires no additional investments and is easy to get started, making it accessible for all airlines and operators worldwide including those with mixed fleets and on-board technology. You will see, via the solution demos and overview, and through real-world airline case studies from Norwegian and Volotea, how the real-time flight profile data is delivered to the flight deck via an EFB device, or simply via the cockpit printer providing pilots with the information they need to optimize in-flight step climb/descent for the greatest efficiency gains, based on the airline’s selected cost index, actual performance data and the current weather and atmospheric conditions. You will see how the tool enhances an airline’s operations, reduces fuel consumption, lowers CO2 emissions, and improves overall flight efficiency by up to 5% for each flight.
During the Webinar you will also learn about AVTECHs innovative Aventus service that provides precise wind and temperature data to the aircraft flight computer for improved performance during climb, cruise, and descent. Finally, you will see how all of AVTECH’s services use global high-resolution weather provided by the Met Office, and how the weather data used in each computation is unique and tailored for each flight. You will see how through patented algorithms, AVTECH retrieves this data in real-time to guarantee that the latest and most accurate weather information is always used for the most accurate flight optimizations.
The Webinar is divided into 5 key sections:
- ClearPath Demo and Overview: Real-Time Flight Path / Profile Optimization
First, you will see a full demo and overview of ClearPath. You will see how the solution combines real-time flight data (weight, used cost index, flight plan, active FMS route, etc.) with a sophisticated ground-based service that uses next-gen algorithms linked directly to the industry’s leading high-resolution global weather model, to provide pilots with an easy-to-read report (via their EFB, or printer or display) providing decision support for selecting the most optimal flight level in all stages of flight to save fuel, CO2 emissions and time.
- ClearPath – Latest Innovations: En-Route Weather Hazard Alerts for Turbulence and Temperatures
Next, you will learn about the latest ClearPath developments with the new hazard feature which additionally notifies the pilots about weather hazards along the route, such as significant turbulence and temperature exceedances, and proposes the cost-optimal flight path to avoid them. This is the number one requested new feature from ClearPath users worldwide: it further optimizes the flight efficiency, and lets the pilots ensure a smooth and safe journey for aircraft and passengers.
- ClearPath Airline Case Studies: Norwegian and Volotea
Next, AVTECH experts will share analyses, data, and experiences from implementations of ClearPath on both Airbus and Boeing aircraft with case studies from Volotea and Norwegian. 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.
- 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.
- 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, ensuring the best flight optimizations in-flight. As you will see, the weather data derived from Met Office’s High-Resolution model has an unmatched accuracy and reduces the error between actual and forecast winds to a minimum.
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.
