Flight Data Services: Offering Complete Flight Data Management

27th July 2011

Flight Data Services (FDS), from its head office in the UK, offers a complete flight data management service to the commercial aviation industry. As a global leader in flight safety innovation, FDS recently delivered the first major advancement in flight data monitoring (FDM) for the decade—a flight data analysis tool designed specifically for the Internet.

Since opening its doors for business in 2000, FDS has delivered tailored monitoring services to its global customers, setting up a U.S. business division in 2007 to support Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) requirements. Today, FDS monitors more than 800 aircraft worldwide. With well more than a million flights in its data archive, collected from more than 70 aircraft types, FDS is unique in providing benchmarking statistics across its customer base, benefiting both small and large fleet operators.

FDS also offers a consultancy service, designed to assist airlines in carrying out flight safety activities, providing everything from a simple gap audit to setting up a complete safety department.

With a premium, complete, and dedicated service that is accessible 24/7, FDS maintains the highest ratio of analysts per aircraft in the industry. The customer friendly analyst team includes professionals from many sectors of the industry—flight crew, navigation, engineering, dispatch, and air traffic control—offering specialized expertise and a full range of quality services.

Operators can choose from a full-service program that includes data transfer, data processing, and data validation or a hosted service, which is an ideal platform for operators that wish to maintain ownership of the data validation process.

The innovative Internet-based POLARIS program is an integrated, open-source solution that can be accessed from anywhere an Internet connection is available. There is no proprietary hardware or software to purchase, learn, or maintain. POLARIS is a zerofootprint, cross platform solution that allows users to browse, investigate, and use statistics immediately upon set up.

Statistical reports can be exported to Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, and Adobe PDF documents. Interactive dashboards allow users to interact with their data and perform investigations into trends. Builtin modern visualization tools include interactive graphs, cockpit displays, and Google maps. A built-in technical support function is also available.

For air safety investigators, the value of POLARIS lies in its simplicity of use, cost effectiveness, and accessibility—whether the user is in the office or working in the field.

FDS is initiating an online POLARIS community to further facilitate and promote knowledge sharing within the industry. Air safety professionals are invited and encouraged to contribute. A place for like-minded professionals to provide input, the POLARIS community ensures that contributions will be made accessible to the aviation safety world.

ISASI membership promises to be very beneficial to Flight Data Services in building a community relationship with flight safety specialists to develop best practices for sharing flight data analysis algorithms and lessons learned from past investigations.
