Save money and the environment by mastering fuel efficiency
FuelSense™ provides intelligent fuel data to help you not only optimize operational efficiencies and drive down costs, but also help you meet carbon offset mandates and other regulatory requirements. External factors in the aviation sector, including carbon offsetting schemes, such as CORSIA and EU-ETS, and regulatory mandates from EASA, dictate that Air Operation Certificate (AOC) holders must have active Fuel Monitoring Programs in place. With detailed data provided by FuelSense™, you can track your fuel burn more accurately.
As well, the sheer competitiveness of the Aviation industry means you need to maximize your revenues by constantly looking for operational costs savings. Fuel represents the airline industry’s largest single operating cost item. Airlines that haven’t yet embraced fuel saving initiatives can conservatively reduce their overall fuel budget by 2-5% by implementing technologies such as FuelSense™.
Knowing where you are and where you could be is key to improvement
FuelSense™ uses real-time flight data acquired from the aircraft’s onboard systems, and presents the data to operations/maintenance personnel in an easy to read dashboard. The data is based on eight industry recognized fuel savings initiatives that include: Single Engine Taxi, Reduced Flap Takeoffs, Reduced Acceleration Altitude, Low Drag Approaches, Reduced Flap Landings, Idle Reverse, and APU Monitoring. The dashboard compares how the aircraft was flown to how it could be flown in order to maximize efficiency and fuel savings. Where compliance has not been met, costs of those variations are shown.
FuelSense™ as a data stream can also provide critical business intelligence for your existing fuel management program. Understanding the granular aspects of fuel consumption and exceedances at the individual aircraft and fleet levels can help with maintenance planning, fuel costs and fuel management ― leading to savings, improved performance and better profit margins.
