Airport Briefing is a new generation flight operations and training platform, and an ultimate situational awareness tool for any operating aviator. Complying with the aerodrome competency qualification requirements, it enhances the ability of the crew to identify operational black holes, manage obvious and subtle threats and creates a clear mental model of the environment before getting airborne.Watch video
It’s an application that eliminates the surprises of operating to a new airfield or a route that the pilot has never flown before. Using this robust 3D software, the users will experience a visual treat covering every facet of their next flight, empowering their airmanship and decision making by enhancing situational awareness and knowledge.
As the acquisition and interpretation of information is highly influenced by expectations, pre-flight briefing is crucial. The idea behind intensive pre-flight briefings is to use multi-media tools to help pilots develop a clear picture of their flight. By being able to ‘fly-through’ the flight in advance, pilots can develop a better mental model of the environment. – Dr. Mica Endsley
For airlines and airplane operators, Airport Briefing can be highly customized to various operational needs. Through its modular design, from a Situational Awareness tool it can be easily transformed into a comprehensive route and aerodrome manual that is no longer in text, but in a 3-dimensional virtual space.
Airports3D is the leader among all Airport Briefing modules and the pride of Synapse Aviation.
Driven by the powerful Away3D game engine and perfected by aviation and IT gurus, it allows interactive and offline 3D walkthroughs at the air-
ports of your choosing from virtually anywhere. This is possible thanks to our sophisticated design with integrated high resolution satellite imagery,
digital elevation models, and aeronautical data. By utilizing an advanced 3D audio-visual approach in media for training, Airport Briefing excels in
modern technologies for training and education delivering proven benefits across the board. Airports3D® and its carefully designed array of fea-
tures and functionalities provide an unprecedented briefing and familiarization method.
Complying with the aerodrome competency qualification requirements, the Briefing module is a supercharged
upgrade to existing company manuals that deal with route and aerodromes information. The strength of this
module lies in its attention to detail complemented by ancillary functions.
Backed by a sophisticated admin platform at the back-end (server side) and a comprehensive client database,the intelligence behind the Briefing module saves valuable time by providing quick access to relevant fleet information.
The Briefing module is highly customizable to cater for various operational needs and company specifics, including airport and aircraft authorizations. The complete system operation requires minimal operator inputs, compatible with existing manpower structures.
The MovingMap is a second module that was built within Airport Briefing which draws power from the 3D engine.
This mathematical wizardry was developed in perfect balance of features and functionalities, nothing more and nothing less. Built around a world
of airports, this module is all about visual route analysis and contingency planning that is available before and after takeoff.
With or without the ownship symbol visible, the MovingMap® features authorization driven, color coded airports spread across the globe.
Simulation mode, a distinctive and unique feature that is informative, useful and fun, provides analytical playback of your actual routing identifying
all adequate and suitable company airports.
The Default module is always included in Airport Briefing. It holds several useful tools such as photo and text notes for each airport individually as well as third party tools such as Windytv for visually enhanced weather briefings and quick access to integrated Google Maps.
Supported by a sophisticated and user-friendly administrator platform available through most of the web browsers, the company administrators control the textual content which is delivered to the users via the Application, and further, collects and stores valuable usage data for quality monitoring and record keeping, in compliance with the applicable regulations.
