Improves safety and efficiency by providing NOTAMS that are only relevant to a specific flight plan

In a move designed to enhance flight safety and operational efficiency for business aviation pilots everywhere, Rockwell Collins is teaming with Skyguide, the air navigation services provider for Switzerland, to integrate SmartNOTAM into the company’s ARINCDirect™ flight planning services.

A NOTAM, or Notice to Airmen, contains essential briefing information for pilots.

“Pilots today receive hundreds of NOTAMS that are not relevant to their flight and are tasked with reviewing them all to select those that are operationally relevant, which can take a significant amount of time,” said Alex Bristol, chief operating officer at Skyguide. “With SmartNOTAM, Skyguide has created a capability that can sort, filter and categorize NOTAMS, allowing a pilot to see only those that impact his or her flight.”

“The ARINCDirect flight planning application currently provides time, altitude and flight path information,” said Bob Richard, senior director, Flight Support Services, for Rockwell Collins. “By integrating SmartNOTAM with our flight planning service, for the first time, ARINCDirect customers will have one, seamless tool to reduce the number of NOTAMS they must review prior to departure, improving safety and efficiency.”

More information about the new SmartNOTAM capability will be available at NBAA 2016 at the Rockwell Collins booth, #3594.

ARINCDirect provides business aviation operators with the single most comprehensive portfolio of flight support solutions in the industry including cabin connectivity services, flight planning, regional and international trip support and flight operations management.
