Global technology company Thales has launched its new PureFlyt flight management system (FMS), which is designed to improve flight safety and efficiency.

PureFlyt makes use of both onboard and open-world data to monitor aircraft and better decision-making in increasingly crowded skies.

Thales has developed PureFlyt leveraging its 40-year FMS expertise and avionics, connectivity and air traffic management knowledge.

Featuring a cyber-secure design, PureFlyt will also aid in the aircraft’s performance and reactivity during critical flight phases.

In the event of plan alterations, it provides pilots with real-time alternative trajectories calculations, thereby improving efficiency and lowering workload.

This allows airlines to minimise fuel burn and enhance passenger comfort.

Thales Flight Avionics vice-president Jean-Paul Ebanga said: “In the air, the digital revolution has only just begun. A paradigm shift in onboard cockpit electronics is taking place in the connected airspace and PureFlyt is at the forefront of this digital new age, leading the next generation of Flight Management System that truly makes the aircraft a node of connectivity.

”By computing and sharing vast amounts of data, PureFlyt will make flights safer, greener, easier for the pilots to manage, more profitable for airlines and, all this, ultimately for the full benefits of passengers.”

PureFlyt has also been designed to comply with future concepts including Single European Sky ATM Research’s (SESAR) Initial 4D (I4D) trajectory management methods, which are currently under research in the EU, and NextGen in the US.

The technology is scheduled to be available for both line-fit and retrofit in 2024.
