bluWave paints the sky green with industry-changing “green” technologies
Henderson, NV — Like its industry-leading peers, the management team of bluWave Airlines announced Thursday morning that it will begin an ongoing initiative to implement and utilize various “green” technologies onboard each of its six (6) Boeing 737-800 aircraft to improve efficiency and protect the environment.
Similar to Alaska Airlines, bluWave will be installing wireless Apple iPad computers in the cockpits of each of their jets by the end of the year. Such technology will enable the airline’s pilots to carry less paperwork on the aircraft and allow for more information at their fingertips.
“Connor [Levens, President and CEO] and I conducted an entire environmental and weight analysis of our aircraft and found that pilots, not surprisingly, are required to bring a large amount of paperwork onboard their aircraft prior to departure,” Michael Shaw, Director of Human Resources explained. “As a result, we designed the InfoBoard™ app for the iPad with OneTouchSM to take the place of this extra weight. This app will provide all of the necessary information pilots will need just as paperwork currently is, while its unique OneTouchSM feature will display valuable information in-flight as pilots complete key stages of their flight.”
Both Levens and Shaw were extremely enthusiastic about this technology.
In addition to the utilization of Apple’s iPads, the airline will be replacing propane-powered pushback tugs with electric ones via a technology Levens pioneered while in college known as ElectroPUSHSM
“Last year, we spent over $5 million on propane to power these pushback tugs,” Levens informed the press. “Jet fuel alone is a tremendous cost for the airline. Why not take advantage of the power provided as an amenity by the airports?”
Levens does believe that over time, airport authorities will catch on to the airline’s increased use of electricity and bill them a surcharge, but he does expect that the return will be greater over the use of propane. ElectroPUSHSM tugs will be implemented at all airports by the end of Q2.
“Keep in mind that the Boeing 737-800 fleet provides us with the highest level of cost-saving benefits over all other aircraft in its category,” Levens reminded the press. “By adding these various technologies, we only decrease the amount of carbon we emit into the atmosphere.”
