BERLIN, October 18, 2021 — Pacelab FPO, the market-leading Flight Profile Optimization programme from PACE Aerospace, a TXT business, was awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label after an evaluation completed by external independent experts and based on validated criteria. It is therefore joining the #1000solutions challenge, a Solar Impulse Foundation project to pick solutions that fulfil high profitability and sustainability requirements and offer them to decision-makers in order to accelerate their adoption.
“It excites us to know that thousands of pilots across the world use our software every day to cut fuel consumption and boost flight safety,” said PACE Head of Flight Operations Frank Opel of being given the label for Pacelab FPO. We are tremendously pleased of this honour and all it signifies, as well as our Pacelab FPO team, who work relentlessly each year to enhance our product. For PACE, every kilogramme of fuel saved is another step toward environmental protection, and we hope that this award will motivate more pilots and airlines to embrace Pacelab FPO as well as take other actions toward decreasing global carbon emissions.”
Pacelab FPO is the most accurate and cost-effective software on the market for assisting pilots in making better judgments about vertical flight profile optimization. It has assisted some of the world’s largest airlines in saving millions of kilogrammes of fuel, hence lowering CO2 emissions and improving profitability.
Pilots mostly use Pacelab FPO in the cockpit – and they adore it! The software, which works similarly to a navigation system in a car, is put immediately into an iPad or Windows tablet and seamlessly connects with the aircraft’s EFB. FPO is the ultimate decision-making tool for pilots, but it goes beyond merely advising them on how to fly more effectively. This powerful tool also informs pilots of the rationale for proposed adjustments to their flight plan. As a result, FPO not only saves money and reduces CO2 emissions, but it also increases a pilot’s situational awareness, which has the added benefit of boosting overall flight safety.
Pacelab FPO was extensively evaluated by a group of independent experts to acquire the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label based on 5 criteria encompassing the three key areas of Feasibility, Environmental, and Profitability. Bertrand Piccard, Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation, will present all branded solutions to industry and government decision-makers as part of the #1000solutions portfolio. The goal of this programme is to advocate the adoption of more ambitious environmental goals and to accelerate the widespread implementation of these solutions.
Concerning the Label “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution”
The “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label is assigned following an examination completed by external independent experts. It is one of the first badges for positive impact enterprises combining environmental preservation and financial viability. Solutions applying for the designation must go through a neutral approach based on proven criteria in partnership with respected organisations. This designation is given to solutions that are both environmentally friendly and lucrative.
The Solar Impulse Foundation is a non-profit organisation that promotes solar energy.
The Solar Impulse Foundation is committed to hastening the adoption of clean and lucrative solutions. Furthermore, the Foundation assists industry and government decision-makers in meeting environmental goals and implementing more ambitious energy regulations, which are required to bring innovative technologies to market. A means to extend the success of the world’s first solar-powered flight.
Since its inception in 1995, PACE has earned a reputation for pioneering software development, propelling us from a university spin-off to an international market player and preferred partner for major aerospace and aviation firms. The firm specialises on providing high-quality software for specialist areas such as preliminary aircraft design and evaluation, aircraft product configuration, flight operations, and extended reality training as part of TXT e-solutions.
