swiss49 Flight-Data Monitoring Services
swiss49 is an innovative IT service company which provides flight-data monitoring services (FDM/FOQA), flight operational efficiency services and flight-data research for aircraft operators, air traffic service providers (ATS) and the aviation industry and research community.
The swiss49 team consists of highly experienced and qualified computer science engineers. Team members have extensive expertise in the airline industry, holding active airline transport pilots licenses (ATPL) or having long-term experience in airline flight operations including long-haul flight services. We have been
responsible for flight-data monitoring for many airlines over the past 12 years, and are ready to work together with you.
Complete flight-data monitoring service
The specialty of the swiss49 service is that we take over the whole flight event review work for you, instead of providing a ‘software only’ service like other operators. This means you get fully-fledged flight safety summary
reports including flight operational safety recommendations from swiss49 on a recurring basis. This is especially helpful for airlines with lean-staffed flight safety departments, since the service enables your
airline to immediately become regulatory compliant and you can concentrate your labour force on the airline’s
The swiss49 service is fully internet-based, which means no investments in new infrastructure
nor additional man-power for flight analysis is necessary. Our flight-data analysts have long-term flying experience on
jet flight operations and since our service includes customisation of the flight-data monitoring events
on your individual flight operation we think we can add significant value for you compared to other off-the-shelf service providers. This also includes high-quality 3D flight-animation videos.
Flight operations efficiency service
Based on market-leading flight-data warehouse software the swiss49 team provides key performance
indicator (KPI) reports on flight operations efficiency plus recommendations to improve in this area.
Unlike ‘software only’ providers the swiss49 services include an airline-customised statistical analysis and trending based on the individual airline’s operating environment.
Flight-data processing and analysis service
The long-term flight-data processing and analysis service by swiss49 allows an airline to monitor and
steer its operational efficiency related to fuel-efficient flying of pilots, flight planning comparisons versus
actual flights, extra fuel surveillance versus destination weather, holding delay analysis at destination
airport, aircraft performance monitoring (fuel bias), cross-aircraft and cross-fleet comparisons, flight
track-distance surveillance for fuel planning and ATC over-flight charges, and many more topics.
Furthermore the indefinite storage of in-flight data and full reprocessing capabilities allow a quick and
easy compilation of warranties/guarantees, facts and figures to deliver to engine and airframe
Flight-efficiency event detection
Flight-efficiency event detection allows you to track non-efficient flights and in-time reaction on unnecessary
non-optimal flights and/or pilots’ behaviour. The highest possible degree of statistical accuracy is reached
by measuring each parameter (usually up to 2,000) of all the aircraft’s in-flight data for every second and
every flight and therefore being able to provide statistically significant efficiency results. Quick and easy
before/after comparisons allow trending and quantifying efficiency improvements even in the 0.1% order
Currently swiss49 is servicing low and high-cycle customers, including an intercontinental commercial airline in
the Middle East operating (among other planes) Airbus A340s, and a well-known European aircraft management and service company operating over 100 aircraft.
