– Why did you decide to outsource your Flight Data Analysis (FDA) activities?
Outsourcing our FDA activities helped us reduce costs, have access to specialized expertise, reduce infrastructure burden, comply with industry regulations, and the ability to focus on the core safety functions, taking advantage of the deliverables.
We were also looking for the Flight Data Analysis (FDA) service option as it would have helped us reduce the complexity of maintaining the FDA tool and necessary infrastructure. We would also have needed competent and skilled human resources for regular upkeep of the tool and to manage the day-to-day activities of Flight Data Analysis.

– What do you think of the Nsight platform?
Once Nsight was launched by NAVBLUE, we got full access to Nsight (NAVBLUE’s FDA tool) along with our Flight Data Analysis (FDA) Service.
We could view all the flights and events, ensuring transparency and ease of data sharing. Since it is a web based tool, the access to Nsight is quick and efficient. The access to Primary Flight Display (PFD) information eases the data analysis from Pilot’s point of view, as it emulates the cockpit display along with flight control surfaces and sidestick inputs. It also helps us in debriefing the crew.
With additional data sources like the weather data and airport databases, the analysis is accurate with additional contextual information. The List and Trace feature helps to access the parameters, supporting on the flight data analysis whenever needed
– Can you tell us about one particular feature about Nsight that adds significant value to your flight data analysis needs?
The feature of the “Business Intelligence” tool embedded within Nsight has added significant value to our flight data analysis . The data is shared with relevant stakeholders within the same platform, allowing us to access the data easily.
In addition to the standard Safety Performance Indicator Dashboard, NAVBLUE also supports developing customized dashboards for our needs, including the customized Safety Action Group (SAG), that helps us to visualize the data in near real time with the flexibility to slice and dice the data to capture crucial information for the Safety Management process. Since we have easy access to the data, the decision making process is simpler and more efective. It also enables us to track our Safety Performance on a regular basis and make informed decisions.
Taking reference from Doc 9859,Safety Management Manual,Fourth Edition, 2018:
“184.108.40.206 The safety performance of the organization should be demonstrable and should clearly indicate to all interested parties that safety is being managed effectively. One approach to demonstrating this is through a “safety dashboard”, which is a visual representation that enables senior executives, managers, and safety professionals a quick and easy way to view the organization’s safety performance.”
