Innovative Technology: Making the Best, Better
The best people are even better when they are continually provided with innovative technology. Operations become more efficient, customer experience is enhanced, and safety—so primary to CHC's purpose—is taken to new heights.
Many technologies are wholly new; others make innovative use of existing information. Our commitment to identify, develop and apply them includes the full range of design-related safety rules and advancements. Examples are:
- Flight-Data Monitoring, or FDM
- Health and Usage Monitoring Systems, also known as HUMS
- Engine and Vibration monitoring Systems
- Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems
- Satellite Tracking and Communication
CHC's integrated global Operations Center near Dallas, Texas, helps accelerate integration of advanced tools, systems and processes for specific flight-operations support, maintenance, and technical-support functions, every day, around the clock.
Among recent examples of innovative technology being implemented across CHC's global operations are:
Airline Information Management System (AIMS)
Planning software that consolidates crew management, providing for automated crew assignments, travel, training, cost management, operations control and more. AIMS represents an aviation industry best practice.
Automated Maintenance and Overhaul System (AMOS)
AMOS is comprehensive, fully integrated software that coordinates maintenance, engineering and logistics across our widely distributed global organization.
Electronic Flight Bag
Replacing cumbersome paper documents, the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) combines pilot logs, flight procedures and other essential documents in the field onto tablet computers and other mobile devices. In addition to reducing weight in the cockpit by eliminating "hard" manuals, EFBs enable improved accuracy and rapid, worldwide updates of essential information, along with better data that feed preventative maintenance practices.
Operational Flight Planning System (OFPS)
CHC’s new Operational Flight Planning System (OFPS) is an example of investing in tools, systems and processes to improve safety and efficiency. Our OFPS puts flight information right at the fingertips of our crews, so that they can reduce cockpit workload and create the safest flight environment for our passengers.
