Airbus Helicopters Support and Services are constantly looking for improving operational safety, helicopter availability and optimizing direct operating costs. One of the key triggers is to use avionics data. Once data are collected and analyzed, information with high added-value can be delivered to customers. They could use them for the benefit of their own fleet, or as a benchmark compared to similar fleets (average). High value analytics used by Operators on a day to day basis rely on all collected data.
Connectivity gathers all the systems that transfer data from aircraft to ground. They need to be reliable, secure and consistent.
Airbus Helicopters has decided to offer to its customers a full scale range of hand-operated and automatic solutions. Some are designed by Airbus such as SatCom and MGS. Some others are partners' technology boxes that can be fitted thru STCs. All solutions are easy to use. The goal is not to burden pilots and maintenance teams, but to deliver operational benefits. Safety and fleet availability are at stake.
In-service operations are improved thanks to data collected through connectivity solutions. Some markets such as Oil & Gas already use intensively the helicopters’ data to comply with authorities requirements. In some other mission segments, these added value services are progressively growing.
