Flight Management Systems

Flight Management Systems (FMS) play a vital role in helping flight crews reduce cockpit workload and manage optimal flight characteristics, positioning, fuel savings, and on-time arrival, among other things. As you can imagine, FMS systems are highly complex and fully-integrated systems. Consequently, it requires a team with expert knowledge to properly manage the FMS requirements and make it all work – efficiently. Building expert FMS experience doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years of training and experience developing on FMS systems to truly appreciate the nuances and complexities. Our competitors often staff FMS programs with inexperienced engineers which leads to customer dissatisfaction due to poor design/quality and slow progress, which drives increased program costs and extended schedules.

Performance has developed its FMS core strength in-house by hiring industry experts to help grow this skillset and develop a depth of knowledge across many FMS systems. Today, the combination of industry-leading FMS experience, best practices, regulatory insights, and program urgency, ensures we get the job done correctly the first time.
