Four Ways to Reduce Time and Effort in Aviation Tasks

May 09, 2019 | Author: Kathryn Kearney

Productivity is all about getting things done faster and more efficiently. It requires finding new ways to perform routine tasks without sacrificing quality. Fortunately, the aviation industry has a wealth of tools to help increase your productivity. Today’s technologies are helping owners, operators and crews streamline their processes to accomplish more with less time and effort.

Here are four ways Honeywell can help:

1. Voice Recognition Tools. Every minute of aircraft downtime costs you money. Now you can minimize scheduled maintenance cycles with Vocollect™ Voice Maintenance & Inspection (VMI) solutions. It reduces maintenance time by eliminating the need for crews to take the extra step of documenting their findings manually or electronically after a visual inspection of a component. The system allows them to record their findings at the time of inspection using only their voice. Whether they are diagnosing an engine failure, inspecting structural components or checking performance of wheels and brakes, maintenance workers can finish projects faster without sacrificing compliance or safety. The solution also speeds up the supply chain by enabling warehouse personnel to pick material faster and more accurately.

2. Connected Maintenance. GoDirect® Connected Maintenance solutions help crews reduce time and effort in maintenance tasks by alerting personnel to imminent component failures before they happen. That means crews can plan repair tasks at the most convenient times and greatly reduce the possibility of in-flight mechanical issues. With advanced notice of equipment problems, crews can order parts ahead of time so they’re ready when needed. By eliminating maintenance surprises on the runway and long waits for ordered parts, aviation companies can minimize downtime in a big way—while also gaining peace of mind that aircraft are running at peak performance.

3. Cockpit Design and Apps. Aircraft cockpits are more connected than ever, which helps reduce time and effort for a number of tasks, from flight planning to communicating with air traffic control. The award-winning BendixKing AeroVue™ Touch is an advanced flight display that can be used as a full-screen primary flight display or split-screen primary and multifunction display. It’s easy to install and navigate, even during turbulence. Known for its excellent touch interaction, customizability and intuitiveness, it helps improve safety by consolidating all essential flight information onto one screen.

4. Navigation. Staying aware of weather and airspace conditions can be a challenge Thanks to satellite and other technologies, pilots can get the environmental and situational awareness they need with less effort. Honeywell’s GoDirect Flight Bag Pro is an electronic application that replaces the traditional 40-pound bag of maps and other information pilots once used to plan flights. The application makes it fast and easy to create and file flight plans, calculate cruising speeds, get real-time weather updates and pull up airport approach templates.

Productivity is a major concern for most aviation companies as they strive to save time and money to maximize profits. As technology advances, it will make available an increasing number of tools to help personnel do more with less. For more than 100 years, Honeywell has been on the vanguard of change, helping aircraft companies discover innovative ways to work more efficiently while making flights safer and more practical.
