Tuesday, April 03, 2018 | Comments

Grupo de Transporte Especial (GTE), the special transport group of the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira), renewed its contract for Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect flight support services to cover its fleet of 13 aircraft.

The contract provides GTE with flight planning services that allow the group to create and file electronic flight plans anywhere worldwide, while monitoring weather conditions and using aircraft performance data and the latest atmospheric forecasts for the most precise fuel burns and time calculations. GTE is responsible for the national and international flight transportation of the president of the Republic, ministers of state, and high-level national and foreign authorities.

“It is critical that these types of flights follow the most efficient routes based on reliable and accurate flight planning to ensure passengers reach their destinations on time,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas for Rockwell Collins. “This agreement demonstrates our ability to meet the specific needs of government aviation customers and is an excellent example of how we continue to expand our services to this market.”

The flight planning solution uses a web-based tool that enables pilots and dispatchers to access it from anywhere in the world with an electronic device and Internet connection. In addition, customers have access to a 24/7 flight operations center.
