Through the use of real-time data analysis, Boeing services aim to enhance efficiency among the airline’s Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX fleets

SEATTLE, February 22, 2017 – Boeing [NYSE:BA] today announced an agreement with flydubai to add Software Distribution Tools to the list of Boeing services the airline utilizes to enhance maintenance and engineering operations, safety and efficiency across the airline’s growing 737 fleet.

The agreement, which extends to flydubai’s 737 MAXs, builds on flydubai’s current implementation of Boeing’s Airplane Health Management on the airline’s Next-Generation 737s and 737 MAXs. Both are data analytics-driven Boeing solutions.

“Boeing’s Airplane Health Management and other software tools allow flydubai to proactively initiate planning for necessary repairs, strengthening the efficiency of our 737 fleet operations,” said Mick Hills, Senior Vice President, Engineering and Maintenance at flydubai. “By reducing the maintenance and ground time for our fleet, these solutions ultimately help to benefit on-time arrivals and departures for our customers.”

Boeing Software Distribution Tools included in the new agreement include the Loadable Software Airplane Parts Librarian and software management solutions that provide cost savings by enhancing the efficiency of flydubai maintenance operations.

“We are pleased to add flydubai to our roster of customers supported by our data analytics-driven products through which we are able to provide real-time data, enhancing and accelerating the airline’s success as it continues to expand its 737 fleet,” said David Longridge, vice president of sales and marketing, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.

Boeing’s Airplane Health Management is currently used by more than 90 airline fleets worldwide to collect and evaluate airplane operations data while the airplane is in flight. Designed to interface with existing airplane systems and communication infrastructure, the system captures real-time data and notifies ground crews of any potential maintenance issues before the airplane lands.

This minimizes schedule disruptions and maintenance delays, resulting in significant efficiencies and cost savings for airlines. The predictive analytics tools of AHM provide insights to the performance of the system to airline maintenance and engineering staff. These insights enhance safety, enable ground crews to address technical issues during scheduled maintenance, avoid costly disruptions and reduce overall maintenance costs.

flydubai is the largest Boeing single-aisle operator in the Gulf region, operating an all-Boeing fleet of Next-Generation 737-800s. The airline took delivery of its 50th airplane in September 2015, and is continuing to expand its fleet. In January 2014, the airline announced an order for 75 737MAXs, with the first delivery scheduled this year.

Justiça bloqueia bens de Fernando Pimentel, governador de MG

pimentel-1

A Justiça de Minas Gerais determinou o bloqueio de aproximadamente R$ 10 milhões em bens do governador Fernando Pimentel (PT) e de mais cinco pessoas, em uma ação civil de improbidade relativa a uma contratação feita em 2004, quando ele era prefeito de Belo Horizonte.

Pimentel responde ao processo desde o ano passado, quando um juiz acolheu pedido do Ministério Público que acusa o então prefeito de ter quitado dívidas tributárias que a CDL (Câmara de Dirigentes Lojistas) da capital mineira tinha com a prefeitura com dinheiro público.

O valor devia ser usado para implantar um programa de monitoramento eletrônico na cidade chamado “Olho Vivo”. O governo nega irregularidades.

Além do governador e da CDL, o atual chefe da Casa Civil de Minas, Marco Antônio Rezende Teixeira, e mais quatro pessoas respondem ao processo. Teixeira era procurador do município à época.

Inicialmente, eles não tiveram os bens indisponibilizados, mas a Promotoria recorreu e, por dois votos a um, o Tribunal de Justiça decidiu pelo bloqueio.

Em seu voto, um dos desembargadores justificou que há “fortes indícios de lesão ao patrimônio público” e inexiste “qualquer prova contundente a afastar os fatos improbos imputados aos réus”.

A decisão que pede a execução do bloqueio é do último dia 17 e diz que a própria CDL já apresentou um imóvel para cumprir o mandado. Enquanto o bem não é avaliado, o bloqueio será feito entre os outros citados.

Procurado, o governo de Minas Gerais se manifestou por meio do secretário da Casa Civil. Teixeira disse que irá recorrer e “apenas lamenta a decisão”. “Isso causa um dano pessoal enorme. As câmeras estão instaladas, funcionam até hoje e são usadas pela Polícia Militar”, afirmou.

A CDL também foi procurada, mas não se pronunciou até o momento. Antes, havia dito que “sempre se pautou por desempenhar e executar uma conduta lícita e irreparável” e que “o Projeto Olho Vivo foi executado em cumprimento à legislação vigente”.

“Tudo será comprovado nos autos do processo”, disse nota da câmara.

OLHO VIVO

Segundo o magistrado que aceitou a ação ano passado, Wauner Batista Ferreira Machado, o contrato firmado, sem licitação, entre a CDL e a Prefeitura de Belo Horizonte previa o repasse de R$ 14,7 milhões, em valores da época, para o Olho Vivo. Desse total, chegaram a ser transferidos R$ 8,4 milhões.

Enquanto os valores eram transferidos, afirmou o juiz, as parcelas do débito tributário da CDL iam sendo quitadas. De acordo com as provas juntadas aos autos, a CDL apresentou notas fiscais falsas como comprovantes da compra do material eletrônico de monitoramento.

O magistrado justifica o atraso na decisão por conta da dificuldade em notificar todos os réus. Cinco deles chegaram a pedir as remessas dos autos para o procurador-geral de Justiça, alegando que só ele teria competência para processar o governador, mas o juiz diz que a prerrogativa de Pimentel é apenas na esfera criminal, e não cível.

Star FFA Cup Arthur Papas coach heads to Saudi club

Arthur Papas encourages his Green Gully side during this season's Westfield FFA Cup.

Australian coach Arthur Papas has left PS4 NPL Victoria club Green Gully to join Saudi Arabian Pro League club Al-Ettifaq as an assistant coach, the club confirmed on Thursday.

Papas, a former assistant at the Jets and Melbourne Heart, joins one of Saudi Arabia’s most successful clubs as a first-team assistant to Dutchman and former Villareal coach Eelco Schattorie for the remaining three months of the Saudi season.

This is the highly-regarded 37-year-old’s second stint in Asia having previously coached in India, where he first met Schattorie.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to join such a big club, in a league that is regarded within the top three in Asia,” Papas said on the Green Gully website.

“I am very grateful to the Green Gully board for allowing me to pursue this offer, it’s the only part of making this move which has been difficult as Green Gully are an outstanding club, filled with fantastic people across all levels, but I also know I would have regretted not accepting this challenge.”

Papas is regarded as one of Australia’s best young managers and has achieved some exceptional results in recent years, especially in the Westfield FFA Cup.

Just last year he masterminded Green Gully’s shock 2-1 round of 32 win over Hyundai A-League outfit Central Coast Mariners.

Gully went on to make the quarter-finals where they were beaten by Canberra Olympic.

He also took Gully to the NPL finals last season after a three-year absence.

In 2015, at the helm of PS4 NPL Victorian outfit Oakleigh Cannons, Papas also got his squad through to the last eight after wins over North Queensland Heat and MetroStars.

Gully have appointed the club’s under-20 coach Brian Vanega as Papas’ replacement ahead of the club’s next match against Bulleen Lions on Monday.

Melbourne Victory Besart Berisha star to debut for Kosovo in WC qualifier

Victory star to represent Kosovo

Melbourne Victory striker Besart Berisha will make his debut for Kosovo in a World Cup Qualifier against Iceland next month. 

Melbourne Victory striker Besart Berisha expects to make his debut for Kosovo – the country of his birth – in next month’s World Cup qualifier against Iceland, meaning he’ll miss one game for the Big V.

Berisha has previously played international football for Albania, representing them 17 times, but had a special clearance approved by FIFA in January to switch to Kosovo, which only became a FIFA member in 2016.

The 31-year-old forward told reporters on Thursday that he wants to play for Albert Bunjaki’s team when they host Iceland in only the fifth World Cup qualifier in Kosovo’s history on Friday March 24.

Victory play away in Brisbane on March 25 and host Phoenix on April 2.

“At this stage it looks like I’m going to go – my first game to play for Kosovo,” Berisha said.

“So for me it’s a very exciting time because I decided to go and I hope I have a great time.”

Besart Berisha celebrates opening the scoring against the Mariners at Central Coast Stadium in Round 20.Victory’s marquee forward was born in Kosovo’s capital Pristina in 1985 when it was still a part of Yugoslavia but grew up in Germany, and made his debut for Albania – like many other Kosovars before and since – in 2006.

Berisha is on track to have his best season in the A-League in 2016/17, with his brace in last week’s 3-0 win over Central Coast Mariners taking him to 16 goals for the campaign.

He has seven matches plus finals to score five goals and match his haul from his maiden A-League season in 2011-12 with Brisbane Roar.

Plus Berisha needs just three more goals to become the first player to score 100 in the A-League, which he’d like to achieve as soon as possible.

“Yes, kind of, because I expect these questions otherwise every press conference,” he said.

“So I do like to make sure I reach [the milestone] as fast as possible because then it’s done, but I’m focused really on the game coming up against Adelaide, which is really important.”

Victory will host Adelaide United at AAMI Park on Saturday night in a vital match for the Big V’s premiership hopes.

Sydney FC’s derby loss last week has opened the door for Victory to catch the leaders, with Berisha and Co. set to visit the Sky Blues on March 3.

After a disappointing scoreless draw away to Newcastle Jets a fortnight ago, Victory produced some of their best football again versus the Mariners last week, according to their leading marksman.

“I think what was really crucial was that we stuck to our structure and everybody did their role that they have to do… and this was all missing against Newcastle,” Berisha said.

“We were very honest with each other, it was just not good enough and we played a great, great game against Central Coast.”
