First automatic inflight synchronization of FMS and Lido Pilot Solutions

Lufthansa Systems and GE Aviation are the first providers in the airline market to offer a solution that allows for the inflight synchronization of the flight plan between the GE Aviation flight management system (FMS) and Lufthansa Systems pilot applications directly on-aircraft. The first demonstration of the connected FMS using operational use cases will be presented at the EFB Users Forum in Chicago (June 25 – 27). The new FMS feature will be available following a software update from GE Aviation.

Flight crews rely on flight-operational information available in their EFB devices in various applications, which today is typically entered manually into the flight management system (FMS). Inflight, the FMS manages the flight plan by computing an optimal trajectory and provides pilots with guidance along the computed trajectory. The manual entering of data into the FMS during pre-flight preparations or inflight can lead to partially hazardous consequences if entered incorrectly.
