GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)

Turboprop Flight Advisory System (FAS) for Cruise Fuel Burn Reduction

SRS-21

 

Objectives:

Reducing the fuel burn and corresponding CO2 emissions of small commercial turboprop aircraft (19 or less seats) during the cruise flight phase using a software application installed on stand-alone Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) device.

The motivation for developing an EFB-based solution stems from the need to:

  • Achieve an average improvement in fuel efficiency of 1.5% per year from 2009 to 2020 per industry target
  • Support Canadian regional airlines to operate more cost-effectively
  • Develop a more cost-effective approach than a traditional Flight Management System with integrated performance capability

The resulting solution will be effective, affordable, suitable for rapid in-service implementation, as well as innovative.
