Qantas pilots, GE Aviation develop new flight data app

Pilots who are employed by Qantas have worked with GE Aviation to develop a new flight data application named FlightPulse that helps people at the controls to fly more efficiently and reduce carbon emissions.

The app uses recorded aircraft data and smart analytics to allow pilots to securely access individual operational efficiency metrics and trends.

Qantas head of fleet operations Captain Mike Galvin said the information available from FlightPulse was previously only accessible in aggregate or used by analysts.

"FlightPulse was designed by pilots for pilots. As a result, the information accessible on this platform helps them understand the operational efficiency of their flight," he said.

“It provides pilots with flight data in a very visual way, allowing them to see first-hand the amount of fuel used at different stages of a flight and how they can help to reduce carbon emissions.”

Geoff Culbert, president and chief executive of GE Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, said: "Through close collaboration, we were able to develop a solution for the industry that connects pilots with individualised operational efficiency data for the first time."

FlightPulse is the first fully commercialised product to be developed with mobile services from GE’s Predix platform.

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
