Honeywell Helped Sichuan Airlines Streamline Their Operations

At present, the FMS Wind has been successfully deployed and tested at Sichuan Airlines, and has been in operation since October 2020.


Why FMS Wind

The service enables pilots stay connected to air traffic control wherever they are and get wind and temperature data, reducing their workload.

The service optimizes the wind and temperature data and the upload, helping Sichuan Airlines reduce flight time, fuel consumption and carbon footprint.

According to Sichaun Airlines, during the FMS Wind testing period (July – September 2020), altogether 585 flights used the wind and temperature data upload module and achieved great results: 117 ton reduction of fuel consumption, 368.6 ton reduction of carbon emission.

With FMS Wind deployed at Sichuan Airlines’ Data Center, high efficiency data process has been achieved with reduced latency, which helps improve operating efficiency.

Honeywell local team provides technical supports and consultancy services, making it possible to carry out quick deployment and system testing.

 

Outcome

With FMS Wind deployed at Sichuan Airlines’ Data Center, pilots no longer need to manually input flight plans or wind and temperature data. The service also makes life easier for operators as they could upload flight plans, ad hoc flight plans (including international cargo or chartered flights) as well as wind and temperature data and send over to flight crews.

Flight Plan: Analyze and upload waypoints from flight plans that are not updated to airborne database, for example, NAIP, points with the same name, etc.

Wind and Temperature Data: FMS Wind optimizes and uploads wind and temperature data of four flight levels according to altitude and weather patterns, as well as sends such data to airborne flight management system automatically for pilots.

Upload the latest wind and temperature data during climbing, cruise and descending after the flight crew get onboard.

After take-off, if there are changes of cruising altitude or airway changes, pilots could get updated wind and temperature data from air traffic control.

The system could also upload wind and temperature data for alternate.

FMS Wind Service could be customized for different aircrafts or fleets. Tailored services are also provided to meet customers’ requirements.
