Aircraft Analysis & Evaluation

Reliable projections of aircraft technical and economic performance

Faced with a vast choice of products and new manufacturers entering the market, finding the right aircraft for the right route remains a challenging task which involves complex trade-offs between aircraft size, maximum flight range and detailed passenger-cargo layout. The credibility and integrity of the information used in making such decisions is crucial, as it not only sparks huge investments but directly affects operators’ bottom lines and competitive position.

PACE aircraft analysis and evaluation tools deliver highly reliable projections of the technical and economic performance of alternative aircraft types, giving aircraft sales and marketing teams, airline fleet planners and strategic flight planners a detailed insight into how their candidates or competitor products fare in specific, real-world operational scenarios.

Aircraft route & economics analysis

When comparing the performance of different aircraft or assessing the economic viability of route network extensions or modifications, it is essential to maintain a global perspective and a level playing field – no mean feat in the scattered landscape of legacy applications, in-house developments and office software typically available in aircraft marketing or fleet planning departments.

Pacelab Mission Suite is the only commercially available analysis tool which brings together aircraft definition, aircraft performance and cost investigations in a single environment and delivers reliable projections of key metrics such as payload capacity, maximum range and direct operating cost.
