Exhibitor information: PACE





Founded in 1995, PACE has built a reputation for developing trail-blazing software products for the global aerospace and aviation industry. As part of TXT e-solutions, the company focuses on high-quality niches such as preliminary design & evaluation, on-board software, digital manufacturing, product configuration, flight operations and training & simulation.

TXT e-solutions is an international, specialized provider of advanced software solutions supporting customers in high-tech markets, most notably in the aerospace, aviation and automotive industries, in their mission- and business-critical core processes and throughout their product lifecycles.

We make operational efficiency fly – save 1% of fuel on average with PACE EFB applications

Our operational efficiency management solutions are based on the unique ability to determine the most cost-efficient, or ECON, trajectory for a specific set of flight conditions, which then serves as a point of reference for economic decisions on board as well as statistical analysis on the ground.

The leading application for EFB-based vertical flight profile optimization, Pacelab Flight Profile Optimizer complements the functional scope of current on-board technology and offers significantly higher fuel-saving potential than the flight management system alone. Calculations with Pacelab Flight Profile Optimizer are based on the best available performance data (first-principles data), current weather forecasts and updates and live aircraft data. The software continuously determines the most cost-efficient flight trajectory for the remaining route to destination and supplies an adjusted cost index which can be fed to the FMS. Constraints provided with the briefing package are respected automatically. With the ECON trajectory as a reference, Pacelab Flight Profile Optimizer is able to pinpoint the available cost savings potential for every instant of the flight, giving concise information about fuel burn, overall cost and delay; the latter provides additional support for managing on-time performance. An optional Turbulence module visualizes turbulence areas in the vertical profile view, allowing pilots to avoid them for greater passenger comfort and safety.

Pacelab Flight Profile Optimizer is Windows and iOS compatible and can be deployed as EFB or cloud solution.

Short-haul aircraft, whose FMS lack the built-in CI capability of modern Airbus and Boeing aircraft, can conduct cost index operations with Pacelab CI OPS. The software supplies variable speed schedules for CI-optimized flight planning and allows flight crews to recalculate ECON whenever flight conditions change en route, taking into account CI, SIBT, CG, wind, DISA, GW, and other key parameters.

Get the most out of your fleet – with PACE route network analysis software

Pacelab Mission Suite is an integrated software solution which supports strategic flight planning with aircraft performance and economic investigations. Taking into account payload-range and capacity, for example, the software enables airlines to assess and compare the capabilities of their existing fleet and helps to identify the most efficient way to service the available route network.


Our EFB and aircraft performance solutions will be presented live at our booth. For more detailed information, please get in touch with Oliver Späth (oliver.spaeth@txtgroup.com) or visit us online at www.pacelab.com.
