OPERATIONAL DATA is a new functionality, available since V2.2 for iOS devices only.
« What is generally our parking stand ? » « Is there an ACU there ? GPU ? Where is deicing ?» « What kind of approach can we expect ? » « What are the rapid exit taxiway from threshold distances ? »
In an airport we have not visited much, who has not already asked these questions ?
This is the purpose of the new OPS data function : collecting experiences, in a participatory mode, on the airfields we are going to. The obvious goal: to increase the pilots’ awareness of the operational situation of an airport, and ultimately, to improve the operational efficiency of crews.
But beware, who says participatory, says that a sufficient volume of data is necessary for it to be representative. It will therefore be necessary to wait a few weeks of feedback by you, Pilots, for the module to offer satisfactory feedback. As a corollary to this, the application needs you to make numerous returns, and continue to do so, even once the database is sufficiently supplied! Finally, it remains obvious that the documentation filed with the authorities by your company is the only regulatory reference, and that this module cannot replace it.
How to ?
By allowing this, you can display all data merged from all pilots feedbacks. In return, you kindly accept some of your data is sent to our server. These data are : From and Destination fields, runway in use, approach type, parking stand, and taxi time. Nothing can identify your flight.
By hitting one of the first two buttons in the row, you show up a new window merging all data for the selected airport. Network connection is required to download data in your device, which is stored and consultable during your flight.
Parking Stand and RWY in use are automatically filled from your flight data, or you can manually change it.
Data are shown under 3 categories : Arrival, Turn around and Departure.
All these data can be shown for all airlines or only for your’s by choosing the option at the bottom of the page.
Just below is the REPORT ERROR button in case of you find something wrong in data (as data are collected by users), and send us the report.
As OPS data is in participatory mode, so it needs YOU to feed the whole system ! By clicking on the REPORT button you will open up a new window with fields you may or not fill. Parking stands are mandatory (automatically filled by your flight data), other fields are not.
You can SEND the data even in flight, your data will be actually sent as soon as the app retrieves some network to do so.
This is a summary – reminder for specific countries and FIR regulations. Just click on a country or FIR to display the summary. Refer to your airline documentation to consult the official and complete rules.
