Let precise winds optimize every flight with AVTECH Cruise Profile Optimizer
AVTECH's new cruise optimizing tool comes in handy; it continually calculates the best cruisin
"The normal standard aviation forecast used by the aviation service community has a global resolution of 140 km horizontally"
The 10K data from the Met Office in combination with AVTECH's advanced algorithms and computing power results in a 4-dimensional trajectory (latitude, longitude, altitude and time) divided into cubes of only 10 km horizontally, which reduces up to 50% of the normal wind forecast error.
"Our service gives 200 times higher horizontal resolution and two times higher vertical resolution compared with the standard weather", Rytter says. "That is how we can find the optimal levels to fly at different stages during an individual flight. This is possible thanks to the dynamic programming algorithm we have developed on top of the Met Offices high-definition weather data."
AVTECH's in-flight cruise optimization is a brand-new service for aircraft to optimize the cruise segment of a flight. It means that pilots have an easy-to-use tool that helps them to choose the most cost-optimal path in the skies, based on selected cost-index, actual performance data and the current weather.
Rytter points out that the route optimization tool is an easy to deploy, inexpensive service that also supports dynamic cost index. All the calculations are done in AVTECH's computers and uploaded through normal channels to the aircraft, where they can be shown from a printer, display or EFB. As the information is always tailored for a single flight, the size of the data sent to the aircraft is very small, and a new cruise profile can be requested any time during a flight.
