How FPDS is critical to the dispatch process

FPDS helps dispatches manage everything they need, to plan optimally, dispatch and operate flights safely and efficiently, with special focus on overall cost reduction and fuel conservation

Key Features

  • Builds and analyzes routes and suggests best options for optimized routing. Factors in tankering and other optimization parameters to recommend lowest cost solutions
  • Auto-computes optimal Operational Flight Plan (OFP) based on latest weather forecast, actual payload data from CRS/ DCS and other company defaults, factoring in operational and maintenance constraints triggered by MEL
  • Auto-checks and warns crew and dispatchers of any critical weather, NOTAMs and MEL implications on safety and performance
  • Validates selected route and flight plan and files clearances automatically
  • Caters for re-routing in-flight to accommodate dynamically changing operational scenarios
  • Provides a centralized facility to publish trip-kits on web portal or EFB/ EFF applications
  • Provides visibility of the flight planning activities on a consolidated Flight Information Board, cautioning dispatchers of any critical warnings affecting safe dispatch.
