My name is Jim Stabile, I am a 23 year Captain for a major airline and I am the vice President of Aeronautical Data Systems Inc (ADS), a software/hardware development company located in Northwest New Jersey.
ADS has solved an important flight planning issue for the aviation industry which results in substantial fuel reduction, cost savings, and carbon emissions reduction, as well as an increase in air safety.
Quite simply, the airlines are operating inefficiently as their technology for calculating fuel consumption is outdated, and as a result they carry too much fuel (which requires them to burn more fuel to fly with the substantial additional weight). While the industry could handle the inefficiency previously due to low fuel prices, the exorbitant rise in fuel cost has caused the airline industry to operate in the red.
ADS produces software and hardware that reduces fuel required on international flights of up to and over 11 percent, by accurately calculating the amount of fuel actually required for each flight. This technology has been used by corporate aviation for over 15 years, but the commercial market has been slow to respond due to lack of financial incentive. The savings are dramatic – up to $1.5 million per aircraft per year on international flights – as well as significant reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
