NAVlink

NAVlink enables flight plan and wind uplinks to FMS using ACARS. The greatest benefits are gained when NAVlink is integrated with a flight planning software, e.g. our very own NAVsystem. The operator can then choose should they want to have their own ACARS server handle the communications or use a third party datalink service provider.

NAVlink can also be deployed independently of other NAV products as it supports industry standards and integrates easily with most of the systems on the market.

Here are some of the benefits you will find while using the NAVlink:

  • There is no need for the company routes to be stored in the FMS database – flight plans are sent to the FMS during preflight via ACARS, hence the improved ground staff workload  and reduced costs of FMS NAV database
  • Reduced crew workload during turnaround / preflight – automated FPL and wind uplinks instead of manual entries saves time and reduces risks of erroneous entries
  • Thanks to the latest accurate wind data uplink, the FMS calculations are kept precise allowing you to benefit from the optimised step climbs during cruise and speed management in case of RTA
  • Descent trajectory and ToD planning becomes more precise with a set of descent winds – this avoids excessive speed fluctuations during descent in VNAV/managed mode and ensures stable predictions displayed on the NAV display

All of the above lead to a significant cost reduction. Actual savings depend on A/C and FMS capabilities, operational procedures and other factors. That is why NAV will work with you to provide a complex value analysis together with a methodology for measuring the savings achieved.

We will also review your operational procedures and suggest optimisations so you can maximise the value of the NAVlink service.

„NAVsystem makes life on the flight deck bearable“

The system is easy to understand, nice to use and it is a veritable tool that helps to a great extent on fuel management. The Flight Planning system makes interfacing with Euro Control on long haul flights easy. The Air Traffic Control flight plan can be filed easily, Weather information can be accessed easily, and the Flight Dispatchers confirm that the graphics makes the tool very easy to understand and use. The pilots attest to the fact that it is a good planning tool and makes life on the flight deck in terms of work load bearable.
