A rotorcraft manufacturer wanted to upgrade its existing flight data recorder (FDR) to provide its customers with more information to ease maintenance and to ensure upcoming aircraft regulations could be met. As the amount of information on-board modern aircraft increases, so do recording capacity and bandwidth requirements. FDRs are optimized to meet extreme environmental challenges and to record a small, by today’s standard, number of mandatory parameters. Thus they typically have limited storage and may not be able to process large amounts of data.

As well as meeting current regulations, they were aware of the introduction of cockpit image recording as a new requirement in at least one jurisdiction. The solution also needed to be as compact as possible as space is at a premium on the rotorcraft.

Read the case study to learn how they selected a new FDR and what capabilities this gave their customers.
