The Massachusetts Institute of Technology International Center for Air Transportation is investigating a new EFB app to aid air carrier pilots in making tactical decisions regarding speed and altitude during the cruise phase of flight. This app allows pilots to see how alternate vertical trajectories will affect aircraft fuel burn and schedule performance. The purpose of this study is to obtain user feedback on the system and the EFB app.

Input from experienced air carrier pilots is requested for the prototype app via web-based survey.

To participate in the survey, follow the link provided below.

Yes, yes, i get it. To aid future automations making tactical decisions, not the pilots.

What ever happened to the days when CEO's drank JET-A, Pilots where MEN, and passengers didn't BARK like BITCHES!

PC PSA (the word women ends with men, so i'm being all inclusive here).

This is really simple:

days 1-3 or on time: fly econ mach
day 4 or late: fly fastly to fast music
