FlightAware Foresight™ predictions are based on statistical analysis of flight tracks and timestamps of hundreds of thousands of flights in the air and on the ground, as well as routing and weather data. The predictive models are capable of identifying the key influencing factors for any flight to forecast future events in real-time.
FlightAware Foresight™ offers the industry’s most accurate prediction of when a flight will land on the runway and arrive at the gate. For airlines, this means fewer crew timeouts, faster turn times, and better aircraft utilization. Foresight arrival times are proven to reduce operational variance, enabling additional flights to be scheduled.
With the largest terrestrial ADS-B network in the world, FlightAware captures aircraft position data on the airfield surface to calculate precise taxi times as soon as an aircraft pushes back from the gate or lands on the runway.
Mass Cancellation and Delay Probabilities
Using historical data, weather observations (METARS), and forecasts (TAF, MOS), FlightAware Foresight predicts the likelihood and impact of a scenario where a significant number of flights at an airport experience a cancellation or delay as far as 48 hours in advance.
Airport Arrival or Departure Capacity
Leveraging historical data, other models (including Airport Arrival/Departure Capacity), weather observations (METARs), forecasts (TAF, MOS), runway configuration, and real-time demand at an airport, FlightAware Foresight™ predicts the maximum number of departures/arrivals possible over the next few hours.
