How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Business Aviation

Oct. 21, 2019

Artificial intelligence – or AI – is about more than asking Siri for directions – it already plays an important role throughout business aviation, and has the potential to expand into more practical applications. Everything from smart scheduling and dispatch for Part 135 and Part 91 flights, to intelligence maintenance planning, to custom tailoring missions to specific passengers, will likely in the future be influenced by AI. “One of the things that AI is really good at is that ability to look across very, very broad sets of data, including many different data sets and different domains, to find patterns in the complexity that are far beyond what a human can see,” said Dave Madaras, COO and CFO of AirProxima.

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Dave Elliot speaks with:

  • Dave Madaras, COO, CFO, AirProxima
  • George Emilio, global account management director for aviation business development, Serco

NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Schedaero, the software that elevates your flight operations.
