Embry-Riddle and GE Aviation to enhance flight analytics and aviation safety education

A new partnership between the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and GE Aviation is improving aviation safety education by providing students and faculty with access to a leading flight data analytics platform — opening doors to additional applied learning and research opportunities.

“Embry-Riddle intends to use the software on all campuses in our aviation safety education courses and programs, and to improve operational efficiency for flight and fleet maintenance in our flight departments,” said Dr. Alan Stolzer, dean of the College of Aviation on Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach, Florida, campus. “This software, in particular, gives us a huge competitive advantage over other flight and educational programs.”

The university worked for more than a year to identify the best flight data monitoring tool for its use, said Stolzer. GE Aviation’s Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) program is powered by the company’s flight analytics platform — the Event Measurement System (EMS). It’s the “gold standard” and is used by the majority of domestic and international airlines, and general aviation, Stolzer said.
