Whether it’s

  • passenger data, like seat and meal preferences
  • airline data, such as route distances and weather
  • airport data, like flight take-off and taxi times
  • air traffic management data, such as air space management
  • aircraft data, like product and system performance

data and the power to predict are at the core of improved operational efficiency, safety and cost savings.

Enabling the power to predict

Data alone does not necessarily enable the power to predict. But, when aviation experts can harness the data and understand what the data can show, the impact on a more positive future travel experience is profound.

For example, historical aircraft and flight information combined with real-time data provides an unparalleled opportunity for improving airline operations. With the power to predict, pilots can receive updated flight plans, traffic notifications and identification of potential turbulence ahead to reroute as necessary. Airlines can also anticipate maintenance before having to unexpectedly pull an aircraft from service. And while all this leads to fuel cost savings, better maintained aircraft and reduced carbon emissions for the airlines, passengers will enjoy a safer, more comfortable experience.

How we can help

FlightHub™ Flight Profile Optimization (FPO)

With Ascentia® analytics services, your airline operations can take advantage of our unique OEM systems expertise and data intelligence, giving you the ability to make informed, strategic maintenance decisions. Our advanced data management and analytics services for your fleet – including prognostics and health management (PHM) – helps make the world’s best airlines even better. And now, with the power to predict, you’ll reduce delays, cancellations and total cost of ownership – ultimately, helping you consistently deliver the best passenger experience.

FlightAware

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 is leveraging FlightAware data to introduce analytics that 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 – which can lead to premature brake removal ­– Collins is leveraging 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.
