Flight Operational Quality Assurance /
Flight Data Monitoring

Continuously improve your flight operations and gain the sophisticated safety analysis
and actionable insights you need to keep advancing your operation.

Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) / Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) is part of the Boeing Flight Data Analytics Suite, which is composed of advanced analytics solutions developed by aviation experts around a common flight data processing core. Built to handle recorded flight data from tens of thousands of flights along with other contextual data sources – the core technology provides secure, tailored access to a shared data set across an operation. Each solution in the Flight Data Analytics Suite leverages integrated data analytics capabilities, enabling better decision making based on factors that have the biggest impact on safety, efficiency, and the bottom line.

As part of the Flight Data Analytics integrated suite of solutions, FOQA/FDM provides advanced safety analytics that lead to actionable insights for continuous improvement. Using multiple associated data sources, easily and securely evaluate data to identify and monitor factors that are potentially putting your flight operation at risk. Correlate multiple data sources and perform root cause analysis. Achieve compliance with regulatory requirements and FOQA programs to run an efficient operation.

Discover four ways to unlock deeper insights about trends in your flight operations

A well-configured Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) or Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) solution can help you monitor trends in event occurrences. But what happens when you see an event increasing in frequency? You go back through historical occurrences of the event, and try to find the common thread—if there is one. But sometimes, even months of investigation don’t yield the answer you’re looking for. In this webinar, we will show you four ways you can dive deeper into your data to understand trend drivers in your operations and proactively get ahead of operational issues.
