Hong Kong Air Cargo (HKC) has signed a contract with ERGOSS to use its SARA web-based tools for flight data analysis (FDA) and flight investigation.

SARA.FDM (Flight Data Monitoring) and SARA.PWI (Pilot Web Interface) provides crew with a self-debriefing tool on their electronic flight bag table, plus the ability to review all their flights, statistics and trends and provide direct operational feedback to the flight analysis department.

The technology aims to make flights safer, while enabling crew to spend less time on routine analysis and event validations.

Hong Kong Air Cargo currently operates a fleet of five Airbus A330-200 freighters.

Fabrice Tricoire, chief executive, ERGOSS, said: “The entire ERGOSS team is very pleased that Hong Kong Air Cargo is joining the SARA community. With SARA, HKC has chosen the latest technology to revolutionise the “know yourself” culture for its flight crews and break down barriers for seamless teamwork between flight crews and flight data analysts. They are the pioneers in Asia and we look forward to a long and rewarding relationship in the years to come.”

Clifford Hung, chief operating officer, HKC, stated that “safety has always been our number one priority and we continually strive to set and meet our own goals. The world is changing rapidly, and it is important that we partner with the world’s best. SARA will provide us with powerful 100% web-based tools that will help us with our FDA strategy and our environmental challenges”.
