SAN RAMON, Calif. & HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GE Digital today announced that Avelo Airlines has adopted the company’s Electronic Flight Operation Quality Assurance (eFOQA) flight data monitoring and processing solution that helps airlines and operators fully leverage flight data to optimize safety.
Avelo Airlines is offering everyday low fares across the Western U.S. and starting service on the East Coast later this year.
The airline will leverage flight data to achieve best-in-class safety and efficiency standards, enabling participation in cutting-edge safety programs in partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). eFOQA Mainline is GE Digital’s flagship FOQA/Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) and data processing solution. It includes a full library of more than 10,000 pre-built algorithms that enable limitless analytics customization and data processing.
With eFOQA Mainline, users can view broad trends and drill down to specific flights to identify hazards and monitor mitigation efforts. Studies of maintenance and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) compliance are possible with easy-to-use tools requiring no knowledge of coding. Once the data is processed, Tableau, a data analytics platform from Tableau Software, can visualize the results in interactive, web-based presentations. eFOQA Mainline provides high value to airlines with unlimited access to GE Digital Aviation Software’s Event Measurement System (EMS) for safety analysts.
“GE Digital industrial software helps our customers embrace the future of flight through sustainable operations, applying proven aviation practices to emerging technologies, and adapting to an increasingly digital world,” said Andrew Coleman, General Manager of GE Digital’s Aviation Software business. “We are delivering breakthrough business outcomes for our aviation customers in safety, sustainability, fuel efficiency, predictive maintenance, and pilot performance.”
Expert data and analysis
eFOQA tracks and monitors safety performance by providing users with clean, accurate data with fewer false positives and higher confidence in the results, as well as automated data processing and error detection that helps airlines save time and reduce costs. The solution seamlessly controls how and where data flows throughout the organization.
“GE Digital will allow Avelo to optimize our internal practices and processes related to operational safety,” said Michael J. Quiello, vice president of safety, security, and operational excellence at Avelo Airlines. “By effectively automating our systems with GE Digital, our team will spend more time building useful safety studies. This will allow us to tailor our standards and training programs to maximize our overall safety efficacy.”
eFOQA is hosted on Microsoft Azure Cloud for security, scalability, and automatic updates. More information on GE Digital’s Safety solutions can be found here.
