Textron Aviation has selected Safran Electronics & Defense’s Cassiopée flight data monitoring (FDM) software for its Aircraft Recording System II (ARes II)-equipped Cessna Citation CJ4s. Using Cassiopée, CJ4 operators will gain a greater insight into routine operational practices and be able to quickly identify potential operational issues, Safran said.

Cassiopée’s user interface offers a comprehensive overview of operations through data visualization, such as automatic events notification, flight path, crew feedback and reports, and operational statistics. In addition, Cassiopée teams are able to perform detailed analyses of relevant flight parameters, according to Safran.

“Cassiopée already supports more than 300 [airline, business aviation, and helicopter operators] around the world,” said Safran Electronics & Defense Avionics USA president and CEO Trice Smith. According to Safran, more than a third of the global commercial fleet is tracked using its systems, with more than 30 million hours of data analyzed every year.
