An independent company with 22 years of expertise in flight data animation for Flight Safety and Pilot Training
With Aeromexico Group, CEFA Aviation acquires a new top reference
- CEFA FAS (Flight Animation System) is a software that recreates flights based on the data coming from the aircraft flight recorders, reproducing a view of the cockpit, the aircraft and its environment in 3D – among other features. It is already used by the safety and training departments of 80+ airlines and aircraft accident investigation offices on the five continents.
- Now the safety department of the Mexican flagship air carrier, Aeromexico, chose to place its trust in CEFA Aviation to enhance its flight analysis.
“An important advantage of CEFA FAS is that it is very reactive and quick. Flight data animation allows us to recognize and analyze a lot more information about previous flights in a very short time. When we only look at graphs from our Flight Data Monitoring system, it is difficult to see and interpret so much data at once. Now with CEFA FAS, we can live again the flight as if we were in the pilot’s skin and make sure not to miss any detail,” explains Captain Juan Carlos Gonzalez Curzio , SVP Flight Safety for Aeromexico.
CEFA FAS will animate the flight data coming from the 130+ aircraft of Mexico’s global airline as well as its regional airline, Aeromexico connect. The fleet consists of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, 737 jet airliners and next-generation Embraer 170 and 190 models. All the cockpits of these different models are represented with the most precise details in the CEFA FAS software – and many more, hence its numerous users. Founded in 1934, Aeromexico, which is a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance, carried 20.67 million passengers in 2017 to 43 destinations in Mexico and 49 international destinations from Mexico.
“CEFA FAS is strongly used on the American continent. Now we are happy to continue our mission: making the sky safer, by strengthening our presence in Latin America,” says Xavier Colognac, VP Sales at CEFA Aviation. Dominique Mineo, CEO and founder of the company, to complete: “For 80 years, Aeromexico is being led by cutting-edge technology. This reflects CEFA Aviation’s calling as well: constant innovation and continuous improvement to meet customers’ demand.”
