    MIT EFB Study on Pilot Decision Support Tools


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology International Center for Air Transportation is investigating a new EFB app to aid air carrier pilots in making tactical decisions regarding speed and altitude during the cruise phase of flight. This app allows pilots to see how alternate vertical trajectories will affect aircraft fuel burn and schedule performance. The purpose of this study is to obtain user feedback on the system and the EFB app.

    Input from experienced air carrier pilots is requested for the prototype app via web-based survey.

    To participate in the survey, follow the link provided below.

    For more information, contact the primary investigator Professor R. John Hansman, MIT International Center for Air Transportation at mailto: pilotsurvey-www@mit.edu

    Fuel is to be used. The trajectory of my pay has and is spiralling down.
    simple math, if you don't have enough then you dont have enough fuel.
    Sir, can I have another.

    Looks like a great tool. Our dispatchers like to short us on fuel and land on fumes. A tool like this could be useful in telling us to divert or continue.

    you should not need an app to make the decision for you, you should know what is going on around you.

    An app is just what gummers used to call an electronic calculator, but it's better.

    the gummers at least know the formula to insert, whereas now the millenniums would not know.
    B747 18 months from idea to roll out all done on slide rule, every thing since then done on computer takes 8 years minimum now.
    Sir, can I have another.
