Qantas and GE Aviation develop new flight data application for pilots

    Qantas and GE Aviation announced (08-Sep-2017) they have developed new flight data application, known as ‘FlightPulse’, which provides pilots with data to help them fly more efficiently and help reduce carbon emissions. FlightPulse is the first fully commercialised product to be developed with mobile services from GE’s ‘Predix’ platform. It uses recorded aircraft data and smart analytics to enable pilots to securely access their individual operational efficiency metrics and trends. Qantas head of fleet operations Captain Mike Galvin said FlightPulse provides pilots with valuable information that was previously only available in aggregate or used by analysts. [more – original PR]
