Under the agreement, Aviaso will provide exclusive data analysis software for EcoFlight Solutions, offering customers a comprehensive suite of customizable reports, alerts and dashboards including an easy-to-read application summarizing a customer's current fuel savings and opportunities for further reductions.

"Pratt & Whitney and Flight Sciences International are excited to partner with Aviaso to provide data analysis software for EcoFlight Solutions," said Lou Quattrocchi, vice president, Pratt & Whitney Line Maintenance Services.
