How Qantas Is Using Data And Mobility To Cut Emissions
Qantas pilots and GE Aviation have developed a new flight data application (app), FlightPulse, that 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.
“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.”
It provides pilots with flight data in a 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 & CEO, GE Australia, New Zealand & Papua New Guinea, said Qantas understands the value of using data across their operation, and constantly looks for better ways to enhance these operations.
He said the company looks forward to working with Qantas to transform flight efficiency.
