eWAS, the complete solution for commercial and business jet pilots for avoiding turbulent weather

We have to protect ourselves from weather hazards. eWAS gives you increased weather awareness, resulting in improved safety and comfort while reducing operating costs

eWAS weather awareness solution is an application for pilots and airlines that gives pilots current information about the weather conditions for their flight via the application. With a tablet or mobile device in the cockpit, which may be connected via Wifi, 3G/4G, SATCOM, or ACARS, they can see weather along their flight path easily and quickly.

The suit of products of the application are eWAS for Pilots, consisting of iPad and EFB devices always connected to the Operations Control Center (OCC) of the airlines to obtain up to the minute weather information from flights, airports and other sources; and eWAS for Dispatch, in the Operations Control Center (OCC) of different airlines through dedicated dispatchers to determine the exact location of every airplane in real time.

For airlines, both commercial and private, this strategic navigation translates to lower costs thanks to the decreased fuel consumption, and in a lower risk of fines for late arrivals. Meanwhile, the passengers can enjoy a safe, comfortable flight without delays.

“The eWAS application saves airlines costs and can guarantee safer flights without weather related delays.”

Training your pilots to use eWAS requires only a short training program. The training can all be done online, so there is no need to gather pilots in a physical location.

When asked about the cost of implementing eWAS, one of our partners at Air France replied, “Cost becomes marginal compared to the benefits in terms of safety and economy."
