Aviation Information and Communications Management System ProvidersAs issues arise in the aircraft maintenance industry with gaps in knowledge of the fast-advancing technology on board, it has been suggested that training is necessary to ensure maintenance teams are fully aware of the latest solutions for airport information systems and aircraft communications.

According to experts, around 90% of problems that arise in the sector are down to people errors and issues. Even today’s graduates lack specific knowledge of the most advanced information management systems.

Older, legacy messaging systems are slowly being replaced all over the world with solutions such as Rockwell Collins’ ARINC eHub for example. Multi-use web-based services are increasing in popularity due to the increased efficiency of the messaging environment and comprehensive approach to information technology.

Solutions for Reducing Aviation Operational CostsAccording to reports issued by EUROCONTROL, the U.S. is outperforming Europe in terms of aviation operational costs. The Performance Review Commission (PRC) issued two reports and notes that while the two ATM systems show similarities in size and traffic density area, they differ wildly in terms of organisational aspects and regulatory operational variance.

The report regarding air navigation services showed that, when taking a look at the cost-per-flight-per-hour, the U.S. costs are 34% lower than those of Europe.

The cause can be largely attributed to the difference in funding. European ANSPs are funded by route and terminal charges, when the FAA relies upon the airport and airways trust fund in addition to congressional appropriations.

Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) in Europe number 37, which oversee 63 area control centres and 260 approach control units. The U.S. has only one – the FAA’s Air Traffic Organisation, which oversee 20 air route traffic control centres and 162 terminal radar approach control centres.

The report “confirms that the observed gap in cost-efficiency performance arises from considerably higher productivity and lower support costs in the U.S. compared to Europe,” the PRC states. “Air traffic controllers in the U.S. have higher annual working hours and more flexible working arrangements, which allow the U.S. ATO to accommodate changes in demand more easily than European ANSPs.”

Aviation operational costs cover a wide and far-reaching topic, from ANSPs to the individual airport environment. In a global economically challenging era, it has never been more important to continue operational productivity in order to keep the wheels of business turning, but to ensure that costs are kept to a mangeable level. Global companies, such as ARINC, offer products and services operating within a web-based environment that can allow seamless reliability, but with a cost-efficient, integrated framework with cost-sharing capabilities.

Global Connectivity with ARINC eHub Solution for Airports

ARINC Inc announced today that its airport solution, AviNet Airport, through the enterprise hub (eHub) is in use by over 100 airports across the world.

The solution give a wide-area network connecting airline DCS to airport-based passenger processing systems, giving a single network connection to support common-use and self-service check-in with back-office settings.  The system allows airports to bring reliability to mission-critical services while drastically reducing operational costs.

“AviNet Airport deployment is continually expanding and includes strategic airports in the European, Middle East, Asian Pacific and American regions,” said Alexis Hickox, Senior Director, Aviation Solutions ARINC EMEA.  “We believe that the speedy and seamless implementation process for AviNet Airport has been the key to its extensive industry acceptance.”

ARINC Inc are industry renowned for the provision of innovative communications, integration and engineering solutions worldwide.  Industry leaders for eight decades, ARINC is a trusted name in aviation, synonymous with reliability.

Enterprise eHub is just one example of the drive to deliver significant cost efficiencies to the aviation industry with a focus upon web-based services and the flexibility that this brings.

Advanced Communications Systems Integration Air Canada’s new Global Operations Centre in Brampton, Ontario has received a major communications systems integration completed recently by ARINC.  The state-of-the-art centre will serve as a central control for the every day operations of Air Canada, increasing both operational capabilities and efficiency.

ARINC Managed Services will also provide comprehensive, on-going support for the centre.

The communications systems integration project involved Air Canada’s air-to-ground and ground-to-air communications, system engineering and support services in addition to existing radio maintenance and asset management responsibilities.

“AMS’s system integration and engineering support has been invaluable,” said Catherine Brassard, Senior Director of Operations, Excellence and Continuous Improvement at Air Canada. “We believe the OC will significantly improve Air Canada’s operations and we consider ARINC to be a trusted partner in helping us accomplish this goal.”

ARINC are experts in communications systems integration.  Their work within the industry is legendary.  As there is a shift in the aviation industry to more flexible, web-based communications systems integration, ARINC clearly stand out with their eHub solution.

ARINC eHub offers increased flexibility and cost effective operations with a solution that requires no software downloads or expensive equipment, seamlessly integrating with existing packages, including CUTE systems technology and equipment, accessible from any internet connection and any device.

aviation messaging solutionsARINC has announced that Denim, Dutch providers of aircraft and crew capacity solutions for worldwide airlines and organizations, have selected ARINC’s AviNet Mail for their critical Type B messaging requirements.

AviNet is an essential solution for secure, mission-critical communications for the aviation industry.  It is a part of ARINC’s eHub suite and provides seamless global solutions with their industry-leading reliability.

Denim will also use ARINC’s GLOBALink ACARS messaging, to provide instant air-ground and ground-air data communications for Denim’s Embraer 190 planes.  The move is aimed at improving efficiency and operational productivity.

“ARINC offered us a user friendly, flexible and more technically advanced solution,” said Maarten Temminck, Project Manager at Denim. “We provide a number of vital services to our customers worldwide, and we believe we can now do so better with ARINC.”

Alexis Hickox, Senior Director, Aviation Solutions, at ARINC EMEA explained there were several reasons for the change. “ARINC provided a superior solution for Denim. Specifically, they cited ARINC’s Type B messaging service, enabling ground-to air communications and lower costs as reasons for their decision.”

ARINC aviation solutions are renowned innovations in the industry.  They are world-leaders in aviation communications and have been for more than 80 years since the birth of commercial air travel.  ARINC continue to look ahead and tirelessly produce new and improved solutions to meet the growing demands of aviation travel.
