Global aviation sector chooses Dubai as launch platform for new technology

Dubai, UAE. 14/11/2017: Dubai Airshow 2017 opened yesterday with a magnificent fly-past: the first time two Emirates wide body aircraft – the Boeing 777-300ER and A380 – have performed a flying display together. The aircraft were closely followed by the UAE's air display team, Al Fursan. Both the Emirates 777-300ER and A380 flying display aircraft were decorated with the HH Sheikh Zayed decal as a tribute to the late founding father of the UAE.

The Emirates aircraft were operated by a flight deck crew of four UAE National captains. Piloting the Boeing 777-300ER was Captain Ahmed bin Huzaim and Captain Ali Salahi, supported by First Officer Marti Gonzalo. Commanding the A380 was Captain Abbas Shaban and Captain Saeed Al Maktoum, supported by Captain Patrick De-Roeck.

Meanwhile CEFA Aviation, the pilot training and flight safety company, chose the Dubai Airshow to launch its Aviation Mobile Services (AMS), a software solution described by CEO Dominique Mineo as “a revolution in pilot training.”

Pierre Wannaz, an A380 pilot and advisor to CEFA, present at the launch, explained that pilots increasingly confronted by adverse weather conditions, time pressures and higher density traffic at airports. On top of this “Everyone on the aircraft is focussed on a single task, it's hard to get a global view of what's happening.” Capt. Wannaz welcomed the AMS system, which basically allows pilots to review an animation of their flight immediately on landing via tablet.

“Such animations would normally take days or weeks to produce, and often rely on crew recollection of what happened – now AMS cuts that out,” said Capt. Wannaz.

The animations will increase pilot awareness, safety and training, offering high-fidelity visualisations of landing, take-off and other flight moments derived from actual flight recorder data within minutes of landing. The system can help pilots analyse unusual conditions, landing patterns, with different aircraft controls – and training.

CEFA's safety and flight data monitoring systems are used by more than 80 airlines globally, but this is the first time the system has been made available to individual pilots.

As a first-time exhibitor at Dubai Airshow this year, 100 per cent Emirati company Atlas Aerospace, the new aerospace arm of Atlas Group, is proudly displaying its next–generation digital training device – a universal flight simulator, a digital training device fully made of touchscreens and flight controls; an innovative mission computer system that can integrate as many sensors as needed on a rotary wing aircraft; and the world's first airborne certified two-channel networking radio, the Harris Multi-channel Airborne Networking Radio.

Ahmed Siddiq Al Mutawaa, Chairman of Atlas Aerospace, said: “As a leading local aircraft integrator of equipment and sensors in the UAE and the GCC, we are excited to demonstrate at the Dubai Airshow what Atlas Aerospace can deliver to help boost and support the ongoing contemporary industry transformations at the local and regional levels.”

Dubai Airshow 2017 features more than 1,200 exhibitors - including 100 taking part for the first time - and 159 aircraft on display during the show.

Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organisers, Tarsus F&E LLC, said: “The Dubai Airshow continues to be a platform for new technology and industry firsts – whether it's the incredible fly-by we witnessed this afternoon to mark the opening of the event, new pilot training and safety schemes, or new forms of communication, the world aviation sector has its eyes firmly set on Dubai and the UAE this week.”

The Dubai Airshow ends until Thursday, November 16, and this year includes a number of new features, including a zone dedicated to Space, the UAS Summit, Cargo Zone and Airport Solutions.
