Aircraft Fuel Efficiency, FlightPulse®
Flight Analytics for Airlines
Dubai-based Emirates is implementing GE Digital’s Fuel Insight product and FlightPulse® Pre-Flight module to help reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions. Emirates is also looking to use these solutions to drive sustainability adoption across its fleet and flight operations.
Emirates is the first GE Digital customer to adopt the FlightPulse software’s new animation capabilities designed to provide pilots with operational review of their flights with high-fidelity real-world, data-driven displays.
Achieve peak environmental efficiency
Leveraging expertise in flight data, Aviation Software solutions from GE Digital work together to address key areas of airline operations that impact the ability to achieve peak environmental efficiency – from fuel usage and carbon emissions, to airspace efficiency, predictive maintenance, records digitization, and pilot insight.
“Emirates recognizes that environmental responsibility is core to our long-term business success.
Capt. Hassan AlHammadi - Divisional Senior VP – Flight Operations, Emirates
“Operating modern and fuel-efficient aircraft has been central to our business model since the airline’s inception. We are fully engaged in an ongoing investment to reducing our environmental impact and these solutions will help us to achieve our goals. We want to empower our pilots with state-of-the-art tools and technology to help them operate flights in a safe and efficient way,” said Capt. Hassan AlHammadi, Emirates’ Divisional Senior VP – Flight Operations.
Fuel Insight is a fuel consumption and emissions reduction solution that works by understanding real data from the aircraft and airline. This software utilizes GE Digital’s powerful aviation data and analytics platform to merge flight data with flight plans and uncover valuable insight to help increase aircraft fuel efficiency and reduce waste.
Designed by pilots, for pilots, FlightPulse provides access to data. The Preflight module provides aggregated data from across the operation for more informed fuel decisions and departure briefings.
Emirates already employees the Postflight module, which provides secure access to data from a pilot’s individual flight history. This allows them to analyze their own operation of the aircraft in relation to their peers and self-discover areas to optimize operations and efficiency.
