SITA offers SITA OptiClimb as part of its SITA OptiFlight suite of solutions. Using machine learning, SITA OptiClimb optimizes the efficiency of an aircraft’s climb-out phase to initial cruise level, reducing fuel burn and CO2 emissions.
Instant in-flight guidance
SITA OptiClimb combines aircraft tail-specific machine learning predictive performance models with 4D weather forecasts, to recommend customized speed changes at different altitudes. It predicts fuel burn in tens of thousands of flight scenarios, issuing recommended climb speeds to pilots ahead of each flight.
A significant reduction in fuel use and emissions
Fuel savings of 5 % are possible for each flight. This could reduce annual CO2 emissions by thousands of tons and operational costs by millions of dollars. SITA estimates that the emission of 5.6m tons of CO2 could be avoided annually if all airlines worldwide use SITA OptiClimb.
Seamless cockpit integration
No equipment installation or connectivity is needed for pilots with SITA OptiClimb. Pilots can receive SITA OptiClimb speed recommendations (which they enter into the Flight Management System) in their standard briefing package, or in an electronic flight folder, or in a weather app.
