GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)

Round 4

Turboprop Flight Advisory System Enhancements, Testing and Engine Model Development




The objectives of this project are to enhance and extend the capabilities of an iPad-based Flight Advisory System (FAS), to perform ground and flight testing to confirm the benefits of up to 10% in fuel burn and CO2 emissions reductions in small commercial turboprop aircraft (19 or less seats) and to determine whether an engine model can be employed to define more efficient flight trajectories. Research and development activities will investigate the means to increase the utility of the FAS over a wider range of flight conditions and aircraft types, thereby delivering greater economic benefits to turboprop operators while further reducing the impact of the aircraft type on the environment.
