Enabling the power to predict

Data alone does not necessarily enable the power to predict. But, when aviation experts harness data from multiple sources, analyze the trends in that data and use those findings to anticipate future events, it can profoundly improve the travel experience.

For example:

  • Using historical aircraft and flight information combined with real-time data, pilots can receive updated flight plans, traffic notifications and identification of potential turbulence ahead to reroute as necessary
  • Using aircraft data, airlines can anticipate maintenance before having to unexpectedly pull an aircraft from service. This leads to streamlined operations, a better maintained aircraft and reduced carbon emissions for the airlines

How we can help

FlightHub™ Flight Profile Optimization (FPO)

We offer the most accurate estimated in (EIN) or landing (ELDT) times in the industry, allowing airlines to make accurate predictions about what is going to happen downstream. FlightAware’s machine learning algorithm blends years of historical data with real-time status on aircraft positions, traffic, and weather affecting the flight to predict – hours in advance – when an aircraft will arrive at the gate. This ability enables tight turnarounds, better on-time departures, and fewer delays.

Wheels & brakes

Aircraft wheels

Collins leverages FlightAware data to analyze and monitor the operational behavior of brakes to improve the life of the brake and reduce environmental impact.

Most aircraft today do not have sensors to determine brake life. Instead of airlines relying solely on manual inspections – that can lead to premature brake removal ­– Collins uses FlightAware data to introduce a predictive brake wear pin analytic. This alternative method monitors brake usage and allows airlines to extend brake life and minimize the impact to carbon footprint, all while reducing the need for constant manual monitoring.
