Real-time Visibility and Reliability: How Aviation Software is Changing the Game

Real-time Visibility and Reliability: How Aviation Software is Changing the Game

Dena Porter, Veryon's Director of Database Development for OEMs, has worked in the aviation industry for 35 years. Having entered semi-retirement this year, Dena says she is excited to see a huge shift in the industry.  

The industry has been so bogged down for so long with antiquated techniques and processes, and we’re getting so close to turning the industry on its ear. I want to be here when that happens. I think we’re at the tipping point and I want to be part of it when the big “aha” moment happens for the industry.”  

Dena remembers a time when most of the cockpit instruments were dials and gauges — a huge change from today’s flat screens and computer software that is changing the game when it comes to aviation. So much so, that she is delaying retirement as long as possible due to what she believes will be a disruptive era in aviation from technology that will transform the skies and revolutionize the industry.  

I think when operators and technicians have access to everything they need when they need it, all in one place, and can troubleshoot with access to their own documentation, it will disrupt the industry. It’s amazing stuff.” 

Below, we will explore how aviation management software is revolutionizing the aviation industry and propelling it toward a safer, more efficient, and sustainable future.

The Top Ways Aviation Software Is Changing the Game 

  1. Enhanced safety measures. One of the primary areas where aviation management software has made a profound impact is in enhancing safety measures. Safety is paramount in aviation, and software solutions have significantly contributed to mitigating risks. Advanced systems such as weather monitoring tools and predictive maintenance software that allow for real-time data analysis help to improve decision-making processes and minimize potential hazards for complete flight scheduling and tracking capabilities.
  2. Streamlined maintenance processes. Maintenance plays a vital role in ensuring the airworthiness and reliability of aircraft. Aviation software has revolutionized maintenance processes streamlining the entire maintenance workflow — from scheduling and tracking inspections to managing inventory and work orders. By digitizing these processes, aviation software has significantly increased uptime, improved aircraft reliability, and minimized operational costs for airlines and maintenance providers.
  3. Integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are increasingly being integrated into aviation software, opening new avenues for innovation and efficiency. AI algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data from various sources, including weather patterns, flight records, and maintenance logs to identify patterns and predict potential issues. This predictive capability enables proactive maintenance and operational planning, reducing costs, and enhancing safety. It can even affect air traffic management. By using AI algorithms, aviation software can process and analyze enormous amounts of data, including radar information, flight plans, weather conditions, and historical data to optimize air traffic flow. AI-powered systems enable accurate route planning, real-time decision-making, and intelligent predictions for air traffic controllers, leading to reduced congestion, improved capacity utilization, and enhanced safety in the skies.
  4. Embracing sustainability. The aviation industry has been actively striving to reduce its environmental impact, and aviation software has played a pivotal role in this endeavor. By optimizing flight routes, fuel consumption, and aircraft maintenance, software solutions contribute to minimizing carbon emissions. Additionally, software tools that facilitate paperless operations and embrace digital documentation systems help reduce waste and improve operational efficiency.
  5. Improved passenger experience. Better maintenance protocols due to aviation software mean more uptime, which translates into fewer delays due to equipment failures. Technology that tracks flight crews, weather, and training needs means fewer scheduling mishaps.
  6. Optimized fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is a critical focus in the aviation industry. When using aviation software that can analyze vast amounts of data, such as flight plans, weather conditions, and historical fuel consumption, operators can optimize flight routes and reduce fuel consumption.  

Why should you consider partnering with Veryon? 

  1. Flight tracking and visibility. Aviation software provides schedulers and dispatchers management capabilities using real-time data and resource availability. The creation of trips and communication with team members is seamless.
  2. Elimination of pen and paper mistakes. At the end of a shift, your team is tired! If you are still using pen and paper to track important details, mistakes are being made and those mistakes are impacting your bottom line. Data controlled by cloud-based software that can be accessed anywhere and anytime is a true game-changer and will increase your bottom line and team morale.
  3. Easy access to technical publications. With online and offline capabilities, a great software partner will bring aircraft technical publications together with regulatory publications in one easy application for quick access and compliance.
  4. Defect analysis. The software can automatically identify chronic aircraft problems and recurring defects, as well as analyze maintenance issues for the most uptime possible. The software can find valid recurring aircraft defects in your maintenance data by using a proprietary text-mining engine and machine learning. This process can reveal many recurring aircraft defects often missed by traditional analysis, improving the accuracy of the overall data by up to 80%. Aviation operators can configure dashboards using custom criteria to analyze defect and chronic trends for individual aircraft views and fleet comparisons, as well as configure custom alerts and notifications based on defects to instantly notify maintenance personnel, resulting in fewer delays or cancellations.
  5. Guided troubleshooting. A comprehensive fault isolation solution providing interactive and collaborative aircraft troubleshooting while capturing new field experience will allow operators to grow and retain tribal knowledge and improve first-time fix rates. A cloud-based, interactive troubleshooting tool will capture field experience and provide just-in-time training. Getting a real-time view of all active aviation troubleshooting and help desk escalations will allow for centralized monitoring, prioritization, and tracking of urgent issues.
  6. Customer service 24/7/365: Sure, AI is exciting, but a great software partner has around-the-clock technicians and customer service personnel ready to help you troubleshoot with a real human whenever your team needs support. 

Summary 

In today's rapidly evolving world, technological advancements have seeped into every aspect of our lives, and the aviation industry is no exception. From air traffic management to aircraft maintenance and pilot training, aviation software and the integration of AI are reshaping the way the industry operates. Aviation software is transforming and disrupting the industry when it comes to visibility and reliability, ushering in a new era of safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
