Teledyne Controls have started to deliver AirFASE to 23 committed airlines using
already-existing flight data analysis products from both Airbus and Teledyne Controls.
The new product's availability was made official after
the successful beta testing of AirFASE with Airbus and Boeing aircraft at two
commercial airlines, TUI Group's German arm Hapag-Lloyd, and Finland flag carrier
Finnair. "After over two years of extensive development, working in close
collaboration with Airbus, we are pleased to release a product as comprehensive
as AirFASE," said Tamas Igloi, director of Advanced Programs for Teledyne
Controls. "AirFASE provides a robust flight data measurement, analysis and
reporting software tool that can benefit aircraft operators."
is a step forward in flight safety management, which is at the core of the Airbus
policy. The product proposes ease of use that will allow very easy deployment
to all types of airlines," said Patrick Gavin, executive vice-president of
Airbus Customer Services.
Based on the long-standing and
effective experience of Airbus and Teledyne in the field of flight safety product
offers a service-proven flight data analysis solution. The new system is designed
to translate aircraft data into meaningful information, allowing operators to
evaluate flight operations trends, identify risk precursors, and therefore take
information-based preventive/corrective actions. AirFASE also enables airlines
to maintain their flight operations monitoring programs and harmonize them with
regulatory agencies' recommendations and requirements, including Amendment 26
to ICAO Annex 6 Part 1, JAR-OPS1, and FAA Flight Operations Quality Assurance
Program, 14 CFR Part 13.
AirFASE performs all the major
functions of the flight data analysis process. A sophisticated Flight Analysis
Program (FAP) reconstructs the flight, compares actual data with recommended values,
and highlights abnormal events and deviations. Advanced visualization tools, including
3D animation, allow for the easy review of flight information, while a powerful
and configurable reporting editor delivers comprehensive and customizable reports.
