Looming worldwide pilot shortage opens doors for machine learning and other technical solutions.
GE Aviation is investing heavily in additive manufacturing to help develop the next line of jet engines. As they develop these skills, they seek to not only make better products, but use this to get an edge in delivering new engines faster.
How can you reduce the likelihood of mid-air aircraft collisions? Can the solution be a pre-cursor to fully autonomous flight? This article explores the use of machine learning to replace traditional Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS).
GE, a manufacturing conglomerate recently under heavy scrutiny for its operational capabilities, is heavily invested in re-imagining how its aviation business innovates and operates through the use of additive manufacturing.
Can jet engine parts really be made from powder? General Electric certainly thinks so.
Boeing stands to reap great gains from a considered adoption of additive manufacturing by viewing this megatrend from a strategic perspective, beyond just a narrow tactical one
Airline loyalty programs (also called Frequent Flyer Programs) have become a new source of high margin income for traditional airline companies. Meanwhile, loyalty programs also generate massive amount of data on customer behaviour as people spend and collect their points. Applying machine learning tools to understand the preferences of those frequent flyers, most of whom have strong spending power, will enable an airline loyalty program to monetize on areas beyond travel. Qantas Australia is the leader in adopting a data-centric approach to manage their loyalty business.
JetBlue is partnering with a machine learning start-up so they can personalize product offerings to suit each traveler's needs.
General Electric is utilizing additive manufacturing to reshape its products. What does the future hold for the company and its additive division?
GE Aviation gains efficiency while reducing weight and complexity on its way to proving that widespread additive manufacturing is viable with critical jet engine components.
