I’m working a consulting project with an Embraer operator. They tell me that Embraer does not have an APM (Airplane Performance Monitoring) software solution like Boeing/Airbus. Can any Embraer folks (or E-jet operators) confirm this and/or answer either of the following:
1. If there is no APM software for the E-jets, is that on Embraer’s roadmap?
2. What alternative approaches (if any) are the E-jet operators using to factor fuel predictions on the flight plans (I have some ideas, but interested to hear others)?
Yes, Embraer has an APM software, but it is a separate solution, not included as a module of a single performance software, such as BPS or PEP.
I recommend your customer to send an email to Embraer Flight Operations Support at firstname.lastname@example.org to request for more information.
