If You're Planning
For The Future, You Need More Than Just Data.
There are lots of sources for aviation
data. But only one has been designed from the bottom up to
deliver the range of industry metrics and trend reports that
meet the challenges of the aviation industry of the 21st
Raw DOT/BTS data is sourced via
mechanisms that fit the 1970s, but, without professional
review and integrity checks can be dangerous to rely upon.
Some vendors claim they reconcile and adjust the raw data,
but when you look, they still report major errors, such as
"SkyWest" or "Republic" as independent airlines - which they
are not - thereby providing incomplete information that's
totally at variance with today's airline realities.
DataMiner is not just another
information source. It is a powerful
tool that allows you to identify and isolate key
trends in the industry. Shifts in capacity, market share,
revenue shares, and much more. Unlike other sources - many
of which shamefully just regurgitate raw DOT numbers,
DataMiner was designed from the start to provide immediate
insight, knowledge and competitive intelligence in every

advantage in planning for the future. And, probably for a
lot less money, too.
Delivers Data Fast & With Ease.
Our interface is intuitive and easy to use. Your time is
important. So Aviation DataMiner is designed with that
in mind. You need data, not complex and confusing report
Complete, Formatted Reports.
The reports are formatted and
include a range of data you can use immediately. This is
an important feature of DataMiner - we give a range of

Immediate Data & Strategic Information.
DataMiner goes beyond numbers,
with the capability of analyzing the future right on
your screen. Not arcane spreadsheets that display
confused columns of jumbled numbers, but immediate
reports providing all the information you need, with
headers and key columns you can sort right away on the
screen, plus download to a range of other software.
That's the analytical firepower you need to plan
for the new aviation environment.
The DataMiner software reviews each line of data for
accuracy and reasonableness. The way DOT gets the data
often has a lot of mis-reported numbers that require
aviation professionals to review.
It's Our Professional Work- Not Somebody Else's.
Amazingly, some alternative sources of aviation data are
simply re-packaged and re-sold as-is from another
vendor. Aviation DataMiner is better, because we
first-source the data. We take the data and put them
through the Aviation DataMiner Software,
which identifies and addresses the "issues" that come
with raw data. We carefully review the data for errors
and mis-reporting. We make corrections and identify
where data may be questionable. Professionals of Boyd
Group International are experts in current and emerging
airline industry trends.
It Addresses The Real Airline Industry.
The Aviation DataMiner software relies on a complex
algorithm to aggregate traffic to the correct carrier
system. Other sources assume the "certificated carrier"
is the airline. It's not. Today, most airlines are
typically comprised of combinations of "certificated
carriers." To report the passengers carried at ATL by,
say, Mesa, is inaccurate. Those are passengers of Delta,
the airline that is leasing the lift from Mesa. Some
other sources either mis-report it as Mesa, or, worse,
lazily dump these passengers into separate, unidentified
catch-all category. The DataMiner system, on the other
hand, properly applies these passengers to the airline
system leasing the airplane from the small jet provider.
It Identifies Reporting Errors.
It identifies mis-reported data -
and there's a lot more of that than most people realize.
Raw data, which other sources typically just regurgitate
and sell, may show Hawaiian Airlines as an operator at
Jackson, Mississippi. Or US Airways as serving Amarillo.
DataMiner addresses these issues.
It Addresses The Challenges of The Hub System.
DataMiner recognizes the
shortfalls in current reporting channels. In many cases,
traffic generated by small airports served by small
airlines (some code-shared, some not) is not accurately
allocated to the proper connecting destinations. As a
result, Cheyenne may show close-by Denver as its #1 O&D
destination, when in fact there really is almost no such
traffic. DataMiner's sophisticated software identifies
such cases and makes adjustments.
Sophisticated O&D Reconciliation.
The raw DB1B data are not entirely accurate and must be
reconciled against other sources to assure accurate
destinational distribution at hubsite airports. Some
other sources attempt this. Others don't even try.
DataMiner is far more sophisticated than any other
source. One sign of really sloppy data: any vendor
peddling O&D tables from a mid-size or larger airport
where all the passenger numbers all end in zero. It's
likely they just took the 10% DOT sample data and
foisted it off on unwary purchasers, with out any
Kept Up-To-Date. Aviation
DataMiner is kept current. When DOT issues a revision to
prior quarters - which is not uncommon - our subscribers
have it right away. Other vendors, even some on-line,
and particularly those peddling static printed reports,
are oblivious to this. And so are their customers.

Group International invite you to review the example reports
listed above. And don't hesitate to access the complimentary

Bottom Line: If you're planning for the future, you can't
rely on semi-accurate or unreliable data sources. You need
