OPENING KEYNOTE: CONNECTED AIRCRAFT IN 2021: WHAT THE RECOVERY MIGHT LOOK LIKE?
Airlines have ground to a halt. Some smaller airlines may never return. In this opening keynote, we have an analyst talk about what the recovery might look like for airlines and how they might need to adapt.
TECHNOLOGY ROUNDTABLE: MAKING SENSE OF CONNECTIVITY ECONOMICS
Airlines are fighting for survival. Already a relatively low margin industry, the Coronavirus has been ‘a hundred times worse’ according to one airline source than they ever could have imagined. Right now, airlines don’t want sales pitches, they want cost-effective ideas that can help them with their recovery. We talk to a team of experts on how the technology industry, as well as airlines, on what is needed to keep the airlines afloat.

CONNECTED AIRCRAFT DATA DEEP DIVE
A virtual roundtable discussion lead by Ankit Nanda, Director of Engineering for Allegiant, which has been undergoing the process of transitioning its aircraft data acquisition, transmission, and analysis workflow into a predictive maintenance framework. In this purpose-driven interactive virtual format, the roundtable will be introduced to Allegiant’s experience in adopting a new flight operations and maintenance exchanger router and data analytics tool. The introduction will end on a question that begins a discussion among the roundtable, followed by comments and questions submitted by the viewing audience.
Wednesday, June 24 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
PUTTING TOGETHER A BENEFITS BASED CONNECTIVITY PLAN
Airline C-Suite executives will be pitched numerous ideas for ambitious projects, some connectivity-based, some not. The majority, they are likely to say ‘no’ to or defer. For airline executives who have connectivity plans that ultimately could save the airline money, how can you successfully put together a business plan that could ultimately be approved? Here, we get some advice on how to do it.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN AVIATION
The advancement of artificial intelligence within the commercial aviation industry has come a long way in recent years, to the point that in February 2020, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency for the first time publicly confirmed its expectation for the first use of certified artificial intelligence to be featured within aircraft systems by 2025. Use cases for artificial intelligence are already being proven, evaluated, and trialed at different passenger facing and internal off-aircraft applications. In this virtual tech talks, artificial intelligence technology providers will discuss what use cases their technologies are already enabling in aviation and what to expect in the future.
Thursday, June 25 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
CONNECTED ROI: AIRCRAFT INTERFACE DEVICES
Aircraft interface devices (AIDs) provide easy access to multiple aircraft data and communications channels. With the increased use of electronic flight bags (EFBs) and the reduction paper charts and binders, AIDs have become an increasingly ideal tool for airlines to adopt in an effort to achieve real-time connectivity streams into the cockpit for turbulence avoidance and weather reporting. What is the actual return on investment an airline can achieve by adopting an AID? This virtual case study will look to demystify the technical jargon of AIDs with an interactive discussion that produces actionable information for participants and viewers.
Friday, June 26 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
CONNECTING FLIGHT OPS TO IT
A new trend has emerged among the air transportation industry’s leading technological innovators, where mobile IT teams are being dedicated to managing all of the organizational information network system needs of flight operations departments. Software systems used by airlines for aircraft scheduling, performance calculations, fuel efficiency, ground operations management, pilot training have advanced in the way they function driven by industry innovation. Here, a virtual roundtable interactive format will provide perspectives from flight operations, airline IT, and software solutions providers for an end-to-end look at this entire equation.
