Airbus in conjunction with US-based Teledyne Technologies is about to begin delivery of an off-the-shelf flight data monitoring (FDM) system to 23 committed operators of both Airbus and Boeing aircraft. The manufacturers have completed line operations testing of the system with European carriers Hapag Lloyd and Finnair. The FDM product, known as AirFASE, can enable airlines not only to monitor flight operations exceedences, abnormalities or trends they define themselves, but also compare them to standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation, European Joint Aviation Authorities and the US Federal Aviation Administration.
