Aircraft data and information management company Teledyne Controls is at the Paris Air Show to extol the virtues of its enhanced Airborne Data Loader (eADL) technology to the airline industry.
The system is having a dramatic impact in reducing costs and increasing the operational effectiveness of the new Boeing 737NG fleet being delivered to Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA, says the company, headquartered in El Segundo, California.
"Senior executives at Norwegian say that using the eADL to load essential NavDataBase each month has freed engineers to spend time on other important tasks; having the equipment installed on a fleet of 42 737NGs translates into a saving of around NKr68,000 [$11,900] per month," it says.
Teledyne is also promoting at the show its recently certificated Wireless GroundLink Comm+ multi-application communication technology, which can be retrofitted on a range of commercial airliners including the Boeing 737, 747 and MD-80 and Airbus A320.
WGL Comm+ is an enhanced version of Teledyne's Wireless GroundLink Quick Access Recorder, which automates and significantly accelerates the data exchange between aircraft and ground systems using 3G/4G.
