ARINCDirect Unveiled by Collins Aerospace & FlightAware

Data-Driven FMS Support Subscription Offers Improved Prediction, Analysis, and Efficiency

Collins Aerospace and FlightAware have joined hands to "unlock the power of data" with a system to optimize time and efficiency for flight and ground crews. 

Existing customers using ARINCDirectSM datalinks can now receive Foresight ETA's via FMS uplink, with a spread of additional features at no additional cost. The system provides pilots with a more accurate, updated time of arrival that leverages FlightAware's predictive models to account for a variety of factors en route, like airport congestion or weather conditions. The ability to provide crews with a more accurate ETA allows flight departments to improve efficiency, manage ground logistics, and create a smoother, more streamlined passenger experience from gate to gate. 

Estimated Time of Arrival isn't the only feature that comes courtesy of ARINCDirect. Flight planning subscriptions give flight departments better situational awareness than a comparably un-enhanced fleet with the addition of 'Ready to Taxi' tracking, enhancing ground support's insights into patterns of aircraft surface movement from power on to shutdown. That same datapoint granularity is available to pilots as well, allowing increased situational awareness on the ground and in the air, with additional assistance en-route to compensate for atmospheric conditions. Whether visibility, cloud conditions, temperature, density, altitude, flight rules, or winds, ARINCDirect offers pilots an updated heading and attitude to compensate and minimize wasted time and fuel. 

“FlightAware’s advanced ETA is a perfect example of how Collins Aerospace is demonstrating the value of the data now available through the acquisition of FlightAware,” said Jen Schopfer, president of connected aviation solutions for Collins Aerospace. “Our flight planning customers are seeing an immediate increase in the value of the service we provide as their processes become more streamlined and easier to manage.”
