Sterling Air Relies on FMS Data from Lufthansa Systems(March 3, 2009) -- The Danish airline Sterling Air operates its European medium-haul flights with Lufthansa Systems' comprehensive navigation data for cockpit systems. Sterling Air recently signed a five-year contract for the use of the Flight Management System (FMS) database.
The FMS database contains all important route information including altitude and airport data for optimizing routes and supporting autopilots on board modern aircraft. The navigation data, which are based on global aeronautical information, are updated and organized monthly and can be customized to specific routes and for the use in any type of aircraft. The FMS database also contains important data to ensure the most efficient engine power levels, ultimately resulting in fuel savings. Lufthansa Systems can thus meet the requirements and needs of airlines.
