Flight Planning - Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
Flight Planning - Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
Date: March 2018 - Wednesday 7 March 2018
Location: University of Sydney ,

Flight planning has evolved from the rudimentary plotting of a planned flight path to a highly scientific process involving multiple systems and advanced maths to achieve levels of optimisation demanded by modern air carriers.

Several years ago, Qantas embarked on a project to replace its’ current flight planning system. In partnership with the University of Sydney and the Australian Centre of Field Robotics, and vendors in Austria and Poland, Qantas has built a new flight planning system that fundamentally redefines the methodology that it uses to plan flights.

This talk will explore some of the changes that have taken place over the years and describe the development and planned introduction of the new system due for deployment in early 2018

Since being appointed as a Major Service Provider to Defence’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG), Team Downer has been taking our SME Roadshow around Australia to meet with Small to Medium Enterprises (SME), and Small Businesses that are currently working in, or seeking to enter the Defence Sector.  The Team Downer consortium includes Downer Group, AGIS, DXC Technology, SYSTRA Scott Lister, Envista and Providence Consulting. Together, we have already established delivery teams in support of Major Integrated Work Partner contracts now in place, with just under 40% of that work being carried out by SME just like yours. This demand coming out of CASG is growing and we need to connect with you to help us deliver this work.   Team Downer is committed to involving Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) to deliver services and capability to Defence. That means connecting your business to Defence work into the future.  Our MSP model has been developed to build relationships with Australian Industry and give you a more stable and steady flow of Defence work to support your business in the long term. Team Downer is committed to extending this relationship by helping you develop your business and the capabilities of your valued people.   Team Downer extends you a warm invitation to our SME Engagement Roadshow in Sydney on 27 June 2018 designed to reach out to connect to you, the SME community. We invite you to talk to us about our objectives and how we can work together to equip and sustain the ADF with world-class capability. Roadshows will be conducted in conjunction with our affiliated partners including Australian Industry Defence Network (AIDN), Engineers Australia (EA), Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), Project Management Institute (PMI), the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transportation Australia (CILTA) and other official professional bodies. This is an exciting opportunity as we embark on the next generation of service delivery to Defence.   Please confirm your registration and attendance to this event by clicking on the reply link within the invitation and sending an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
