The expansion of data and its efficient handling is becoming a more popular tendency in recent times bringing new difficulties to learn new avenues. Data analytics can be done more proficiently with the availability of distributed architecture of not only SQL (NoSQL) databases. Technological advancements around us are changing very rapidly, and major shift is being carried out, a switch from relational to non-relational world. When moving from relational to non-relational models, database administrators face common problems due to the fact that NoSQL is a no-schema database. The purpose of conducting this research is to propose a mechanism by which the schema of a relational database management system and its data can be transformed into big data by following some standardize guidelines. This model can be quite useful for relational database administrators by enabling them to give attention to logical modeling rather than procedural writing for each and every SQL to NoSQL transition.

Civil Aircraft Big Data Platform

Large plane platforms are shown in Figure 1. During the flight, the flight data will move according to civil air craft in real time transferring large data platforms to the Civil Aircraft platform or through an open-ended data link. Statistics include aircraft position data and aircraft health monitoring data. After logging in, data from all parameter data will be sent offline. In real-time flight data is analyzed by Data Center and the plane's health decision’s resultssent back. The database sends data recovery data and recovery recommendations to the airport maintenance center, which results in the maintenance of data center. To provide the aircraft’s real-time tracing the aircraft flight data and the airport’s operational data is used by data centerand provide advice for flight settings.
