FlightSafety International and GE Digital have launched a partnership to use actual flight data to reduce flight risks through superior training delivery.

In this partnership GE Digital will provide data driven corporate flight operations quality assurance (C-FOQA) insights to FlightSafety. FlightSafety will use these insights to enhance training. More than 300 operators and over 1,000 aircraft are part of the C-FOQA community, and are able to make use of automatic processing of flight data with a library of more than 200 events and over 2,000 measurements that monitor everything from aircraft limitation exceedances to risk based modelling.

“Actual flight data will allow us to tailor training to address safety threats before crews even experience them,” says Brad Thress, president and CEO of FlightSafety International. “FlightSafety employs a risk based approach to training, and partnering with GE Digital for its C-FOQA data will have incredible applications for us on approach stability, touch down point control, procedure compliance and runway safety, among others.”

FlightSafety's executive vice president of safety and regulatory compliance Richard Meikle says, “We aim to train the most prepared pilots in the industry; proficient simply isn't enough. Our partnership with GE Digital will provide evidence of threats to flight operations through the GE Digital aviation software data to construct precisely targeted scenarios to enhance safety. That's much more than just checking boxes to complete requirements.”
