An independent company with 22 years of expertise in flight data animation for Flight Safety and Pilot Training
Air Transport Services Group ATSG, currently the world’s largest lessor of converted Boeing 767 freighter aircraft, airline subsidiaries have chosen CEFA Aviation’s Flight Data Animation Software CEFA FAS, to animate the data of the Flight Data Recorder.
The acquisition of CEFA FAS for ABX Air and Air Transport Services Group (ATI) completes a new process of upgrading the technologies used to automate its subsidiaries’ operations. In this case, Omni Air International (Omni) had already adopted CEFA Aviation’s Flight Data Animation Software a couple of years earlier.
“Omni has demonstrated improvements in flight safety and reliability through the adoption of CEFA Aviation’s Flight Data Animation Software,” said Ed Koharik, chief operating officer of ATSG. “I am confident that ABX Air and ATI will realize similar benefits to their industry-leading safety and reliability programs.
CEFA FAS animation software can process a variety of complex forms of recorded flight data and information and display it dynamically and synthetically in a form that can be understood and shared by a wide audience within the aviation industry.
