Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Leverages Flight Data Monitoring Using FlyteAnalytics® by CAPACG LLC to Improve Safety and Efficiency

FlyteAnalytics® technology, developed by CAPACG LLC, lets Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University monitor every moment of a flight to enhance aviation safety.

"The safety of our students is our No. 1 priority. We are honored to partner with CAPACG LLC to continuously advance that goal." -- Dr. Alan Stolzer, dean, College of Aviation, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been using in-house flight data monitoring analysis since 2007, and in 2018, it began uploading data from its fleet of Cessna 172 and Diamond DA42 aircraft to FlyteAnalytics®, an in-the-cloud tool for improving the safety and efficiency of flight operations.

The FlyteAnalytics® technology, developed by CAPACG LLC, allows the university’s flight-training team to monitor every moment of a flight in order to analyze any variances from standard operational procedures. For example, the technology can spot one of the most common scenarios in flight training – unstable approaches – and it helps the university address such issues swiftly and appropriately.

This continual search for quality-improvement opportunities has become an integral part of Embry-Riddle’s renowned Safety Management System. The school’s laser focus on safety was further validated this summer when the school achieved an important international designation known as IS-BAO Stage III (International Standards – Business Aircraft Operations) registration – something no other university flight operation has done.

The general aviation community’s interest in flight data monitoring kicked into high gear at a 2007 General Aviation-Flight Data Monitoring conference that explored how emerging technologies could enhance flight safety.

“Today, that technology is a reality, and FlyteAnalytics® also supports improved maintenance, operational quality, safety and training,” said Dr. Alan Stolzer, dean of Embry-Riddle’s College of Aviation on the Daytona Beach Campus. “The safety of our students is our No. 1 priority. We are honored to partner with CAPACG LLC to continuously advance that goal.”

Larry McCarroll, CEO of CAPACG LLC said, “We are proud of the capabilities and affordability FlyteAnalytics® offers to improve general aviation safety and everyday operations, and we look forward to future collaborations with our colleagues at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.”
