Aircraft Analytics (a joint Aircraft Commerce and Aircraft IT venture) is delighted to announce a partnership with Air Support to use its world-class cutting-edge flight planning solution PPS, in the development of powerful and innovative aircraft performance and cost analysis tools. The tools will initially be available for narrow-body freighter aircraft in the Aircraft Analytics launch module ‘Freighters’, before extending to cover all freighter and passenger aircraft, from regional to wide-body, as more modules are released to market throughout 2020.

The PPS flight planning data, alongside other key aircraft performance data, used in the launch Freighters modules, will allow users to compare the performance of different freighter aircraft in exact, like-for-like route and sector scenarios, using two interactive digital tools:

  • Interactive Payload/Range Tool: Explore how payload, volume, volumetric payload and cargo packing densities vary by selected sector length and airport elevation. View results by individual aircraft or compare variants.
  • Interactive Network Performance Tool: Test and compare aircraft performance on our real-world networks from around the world. Results include: en-route fuel burn, block-times, flight times and available gross and revenue payload.

Andy Coupland, CEO at Aircraft Analytics, stated; “This is great news for us: we are so pleased to be working with Air Support. The partnership epitomizes the Aircraft Analytics offer in that, with PPS, as used by aircraft operators in more than 75 countries, we are using world-class real-world data to power our interactive data tools.”

Peter Gravesen CCO at Air Support added; “We are very excited to be partnering with Aircraft Analytics in the development of this valuable resource for the industry. Aircraft Analytics will be applying our tried and tested flight planning technology to bring real world data and analysis to key decision areas about which aircraft will deliver the optimum operational outcomes.”
