Monitor and predict future aircraft maintenance events
Predictive maintenance has for some time been discussed in aviation as essential to improving efficiencies and costs in aircraft maintenance. Assessing the precise locations and dates of aircraft on the ground and using this to predict future maintenance events is core to driving such efficiency and cost improvements.
Ground Events is a first of its kind tool which enables businesses to analyze the historical maintenance of aircraft, optimize how aircraft are being used, effectively place parts and spares where they are needed, identify retrofit opportunities and more.
Understand where, for how long and why aircraft are spending time on the ground for maintenance and forecast future events, whether that be c-checks, heavy checks, paint work, retrofits and more.
Ground Events is part of Cirium Ascend®, providing aircraft analytics to empower businesses around the world to make dial-shifting financial risk, investment growth strategy and market assessment decisions.
Proactively plan for future aircraft ground events
Analyze the maintenance of aircraft
Access maintenance specific data on top of flight activity information and identify the precise locations and dates of aircraft on the ground. The fast and flexible tool displays all aircraft ground events that last for more than seven days.
Place aircraft and parts where needed
Have confidence using satellite-based flight tracking data which identifies the precise locations of aircraft on the ground, anywhere in the world. Tracking historical scheduled maintenance checks enables the prediction of future scheduled checks.
Identify retrofit opportunities
View specific ground event information with around 35,000 labelled ground events by type of event, such as C-check, heavy check, paint work or retrofit. The proprietary Ground Events data derives from the fusion of Cirium’s fleet, maintenance and flight data.
Optimize how aircraft are being used
Filter aircraft history by aircraft registration and access the context around a ground stay. Use filters to view maintenance events and projections by event type, event start date aircraft type, operator, MRO, lessor, MRO region or country and engine type.
Use more informed analysis to predict the next maintenance event
Proactively monitor and mitigate regulatory risk because of current assets’ operations into sanctioned countries, financial risk because of aircraft being flown when it shouldn’t be, repossession risk because of operations into conflict zones and early signs of slowdown in operations. Better manage aircraft assets according to contract terms and industry standards.
Improve the monitoring of aircraft in a portfolio and mitigate any financial impact and forms of non-compliance. Proactively monitor and mitigate any operational risk associated to assets, identify when flying and/or spending time on the ground in sanctioned countries, into conflict zones and more.
Analyze the duration, location, and reason for an aircraft being grounded. Gauge possible risks associated with a ground stays and understand if policy wording/limits have been breached or sanctions violated.
Non-banking financial institutions
Analyze how the maintenance and aftermarket companies are performing by assessing trends and reliably forecast the expected revenue and profits for aerospace companies in a portfolio.
Understand when aircraft assets are due their next maintenance check and uncover opportunities to place new aircraft with airlines that effectively maintain aircraft.
Identify aircraft and engines to purchase, MRO providers to work with and airport locations to leverage. Help minimize fleet utilization, time on ground and turnaround times.
Analyze aircraft maintenance by airline to assess risk and understand MRO activity for the next 12 months to inform insurance policies.
What’s included in Ground Events?
| Actual maintenance event data Ground Events considers when the last maintenance event occurred and is the basis for predicting future maintenance events. The tool identifies all aircraft ground events that last more than seven days.||Maintenance specific data on top of flight activity |
Integrates proprietary fleet, maintenance and advanced flight data to identify the precise locations and dates of ground events. Flight information leverages gapless satellite flight tracking data of all modern aircraft globally.
| Ground event labels Around 35,000 ground events are labelled for the last 5+ years with the nature of the ground stay, such as C-Check, Heavy Check, Retrofit and Paint work. Supported by Cirium’s experts in fleet data and the aerospace market. |
|Leverages Cirium’s unrivaled fleets data |
Fleet data in Ground Events derives from industry leading Cirium Fleets data on over 450k unique aircraft records across over 770 aircraft types. Includes data on over 2.7mn aircraft events and over 300 attributes per aircraft.
