So you want to go flying?
…and you operate any of these…
…then you need to be across a lot of this…
ADVISORY CIRCULARS / RULES
MET ACTUAL / FORECASTS
AIRPORTS / ALTERNATES
AIRSPACE / FREQUENCIES
FLIGHT PROCEDURES / ROUTES
A quick recap of some concepts…
NAVIGATION – VFR vs IFR
Visual Flight Rules (VFR)
Conventional IFR - Referencing radio beacons on the ground
GNSS IFR - Referencing Satellite systems
AIRSPACE – CONTROLLED vs UNCONTROLLED
Today Aero data updates come from…
IFR ENROUTE CHARTS
and the system can be characterised as…
HIGH QUALITY & COMPLIANT
MOSTLY PAPER BASED
What if we combined it all and made it visual?
EASIER TO USE
See vs read – its faster and more informative
A MORE COMPLETE PICTURE
Therefore increased situational awareness
ENABLES FLIGHT APPS
Packaging data together and providing it via structured connectors enables third party apps to develop while providing the controls needed by regulators
UPDATES IN NEAR REAL-TIME
Data transacts as it is changed
Well that is what we are doing. For example:
MIXED USE AIRSPACE
AERO DATA MAP
Keeping Paper in Sync
Ensuring that paper versions do not lag behind the digital versions so either can be used for operations.
What infrastructure and equipment will provide connectivity and at what cost to users?
Systems will ingest and convert data from multiple sources constantly. How do we ensure information going in is protected and is correct when it comes out?
New capabilities. How do we ensure they enhance, not degrade pilot situational awareness and workflow?
UTM - Manned vs Unmanned
How do we ensure that the manned and unmanned aircraft have the same situational awareness and can integrate into the system safely and easily?
In a user pays funding environment, how do we achieve win-win commercial agreements that drive user adoption and system growth?
