MxVision AviationSentry, a PC-based weather system designed exclusively for the aviation industry, now provides pilots and FBOs with storm tracking and lightning detection, according to Meteorlogix (Booth No. 2379).
Jeppesen has launched its Flight Operations Service to support operators who are constrained by limited resources. The unit will deliver complete dispatch services intended to appeal to those companies who want to remain focused on running healthy operations without making large investments in dispatch and flight operations support departments.
Jeppesen recently announced the release of two flight-planning interfaces, one browser-based and one using TCP/IP communication protocol, for its JetPlan flight-planning software.
Rockwell Collins is banking on its new digital data acquisition, distribution and display architecture, called eFlight, to coordinate a wide range of in-flight and air-to-ground activities aboard aircraft.
Thanks to a group of academic economists from Harvard and Stanford, we now know that the U.S. economy has been in a recession since last March. But despite academia’s confirmation of what most of us had already figured out on our own, the World Wide Web–and by extension the e-commerce business model–is not on the verge of extinction.
Rockwell Collins announced that it is embarking on a mission to turn the cockpits and passenger compartments of business airplanes and regional airliners into virtual information nerve centers, where all manner of digital data would be sent, received and stored using high-speed electronic pipelines and onboard computer servers.
Moving Terrain (Booth No. 887) is showing off a new “enhancement” for its electronic flight bag (EFB) here at EBACE. Dubbed Blitzplan, the software upgrade allows pilots to use their Moving Terrain EFB to file a flight plan directly from their aircraft. The new software module allows a pilot to quickly generate a Eurocontrol-approved route, and that flight plan can then be activated from the EFB thanks to a built-in GSM phone.
Air Support’s Preflight Planning System (PPS) is a flight planning engine that produces an operational computer flight plan showing routes, flight levels, distance, time and fuel needs, including reserves.
Air Support is unveiling the latest new features of its Preflight Planning System (PPS) here at EBACE this week (Booth No. 722). The Danish software house is progressively extending the scope of the flight-planning program to encompass more real-time data, while boosting its value as an operations management tool that gives users a better grasp of their direct operating costs.
After low-cost carriers, business aviation now ranks number two in Eurocontrol’s latest traffic statistics. “Not long ago, business aviation was not even on the radar screen of the agency and other decision makers,” European Business Aviation Association chief executive Eric Mandemaker told attendees at the general and business aviation annual forum held at the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation in Brussels recently.
