What if we could all share flight data?
Presenting The
POLARIS Suite
The innovative software that leads the way to higher standards in flight safety
Our Mission for Aviation Safety
Flight Data Services believe we could all have safer air travel if the aviation industry had a common platform to share flight data. That's why we share our software. Flight Data Services have a policy to place key elements of their flight data analysis processes into the public domain in an effort to promote flight safety through establishment of a lingua franca. This is seen as a way to cut through arguments like “my data is incompatible with yours” and pave the way to greater cooperation, collaboration and sharing of safety information. We make aviation safety our number one priority.

You Can’t Have a Binary KPV
Dave Jesse on December 8, 2017

  A long time ago I explained that our analysis of flight data is based upon the concept of a Key Point Value, where an aspect of a flight is reduced to a single number. For example,  the airspeed at takeoff or the maximum angle of bank during a flight. These are analogue measurements, that […]
