Money, Broken Promises & Results


Michael Denis, VP InfoTrust, astutely summarizes and analyzes the last year of debate, and dilemmas, about how to use aircraft data more efficiently in his LinkedIn Aircraft Lifecycle Wikinomics

Modern technology aircraft and engines generate a lot of performance and operational data, but if the industry can't use it well, is it a benefit?
