Webinar Overview:

Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 27th September 2018) for a great chance to see a full overview of the live modern weather uplink solution  Aventus SIGMA from AVTECH, and live demo of the new powerful pilot-centric App.  You will see how it provides real-time weather briefing and alerts, including graphical views of multiple weather phenomena (such as turbulence, wind-shear, temperature, thunder storms, ice, SIGMETS, station weather, volcanic ash, etc.) during all phases of flight; letting pilots track bad weather, and decide whether to re-route the flight or optimize trajectory based on winds. As you will see SIGMA can be delivered to the flight deck via ACARS or Wi-Fi so is compatible with any aircraft type and is simple to deploy, requiring minimal IT involvement. You will also see how the solution is powered by the unique Met Office (UK) 10km global aviation weather forecast model for the most accurate data possible compared to the aviation standard 140km.

The Webinar is divided into three key sections:
  • Full Aventus SIGMA Overview and Case Studies
    First you will see an overview of the solution, its key features and benefits; including how it provides improved flight deck decision support through uplinking of weather hazard information, assisting airlines to operate safer, more economical, smoother and punctual flights avoiding significant weather. Also how the solution is benefiting major airlines such as easyJet to optimize cruise, decent and climb trajectories based on the latest wind information, leading to significant fuel savings.

  • Advanced Weather Data - How it works and why it's important
    Next you will learn how the unique Met Office 10km grid resolution worldwide forecast represents the most realistic and accurate forecasts available in the industry. Tests have shown that the 10km grid resolution forecast, when compared to the aviation standard of 140km grids, reduces wind and temperature errors by more than 50%.

  • iPad Weather App Pilot Walkthrough Demo
    Finally you will see how pilots navigate the new App's graphically optimized view providing live weather data, as well as the direction of the weather's movement for the entire flight in real-time. You will see how pilots can plan the most efficient routes and trajectories to avoid significant weather or optimize cruise, descent or climb levels.
Webinar Agenda:
  • Advanced weather - the BIG difference
  • Benefits and case studies - Demo of new App now available
  • Summary
  • Q&A

About the Aircraft IT Webinars:

Every 2 weeks the Aircraft IT Operations portal hosts a different live Webinar, each Webinar hosted by a different IT Vendor.  These sessions represent the perfect opportunity to learn about a software solution in a more informal manner and to quickly gain an in depth knowledge of all the major systems on the market, all from the comfort of your own office or home with no sales pressure.

The IT vendor provides a live software demonstration/masterclass of their solution and explains how it can benefit airlines & Operators.  Once logged on, online delegates can ask questions via the interactive sections of the Webinar or simply sit back and watch and listen to the demonstration.  There are two sessions during the day, each differently times to accommodate all time zones.

Each Webinar session is recorded and posted back to the Aircraft IT website a few days after the live session to allow you to view the content again with your colleagues.  The library of past Webinar recordings provide an invaluable reference source of Flight Operations software demonstrations from the World's leading Operations IT Vendors.
