Air New Zealand has recognised the benefits of Flight Data Monitoring (Flight Operations Quality Assurance) and has had a FDM / FOQA program running for 2 years. After a demonstration of Aerobytes in 2006 they realised that it was time to upgrade from their two existing software programs and started a trial of the Aerobytes FDM / FOQA software. At the end of the three month trial it was obvious that the Aerobytes software offered many advantages over their existing systems in terms of ease of use, efficiency, automation and results.

Paul Wylie, Flight Data Manager at Air New Zealand, commented, "Aerobytes is the next generation of flight data monitoring software and has many features to allow us to effectively monitor the large amount of flight data we collect. The software is not only more efficient but also more effective than our previous systems. We particularly like the 'drill down' feature where can highlight events on statistical reports and open the flight data to view it in context. It also saves a lot of time to have the 3D animation built in without the requirement to export it to another package. Compared to our previous systems the software is stable, easy to use and well supported."

Drill Down in more detail
'Drill Down' allows Aerobytes users to move from statistics to flight data without intermediate steps. i) Users draw a box around points on a statistical report to list them, ii)they then choose which flights to open (multiple flights can be opened), iii) they then choose how much data to open. The flight data is at that exact point in the flight where the event or value came from.

Kevin Martin, Aerobytes Sales Manager explains "All crew know they are not supposed to be fast on approach so informing them this is the case will have limited effectiveness. being able to get to the event and then view the data before lets you see the WHY. Acting on the WHY leads to much greater improvements in safety and economy. It also cuts down on the large amount of time users of other systems can spend validating data never knowing whether it will be viewed again"

(This example is not Air New Zealand flight data)

Typical statistical report - draw a box around one or several bars to list the events, see below.

Select a flight to view, multiple flights can be selected.

The flight data opens at the exact point the event occurred. In this instance "High Speed below 1,000ft" shows a speed relative to Vref of +54 knots at 895 ft. To find out why users can go back through the data.
