Jeppesen Aero Insights monitors up to 200,000 general, business, and commercial aviation flights per day at more than 4000 airports worldwide by combining industry-leading Jeppesen aeronautical maps with live aircraft position data. The system uses Apache Spark™ structured streaming with arbitrary stateful aggregation to detect each pushback, taxi, take-off, hold, diversion, landing, and parking event. The data informs internal marketing, strategy, and engineering decisions through dashboards and ad-hoc analysis. It also makes its way to airline customers on the flight deck and in the operations control center (OCC) through Jeppesen products like FliteDeck Pro and Fleet Insight and directly with APIs available through Boeing Developer Tools. Learn how we use Unity Catalog to produce discoverable internal data products, Delta Live Tables pipelines with custom libraries to parse complex data types, and MLflow to train models and make online predictions for pilots.
