New technology will help pilots-in-training
July 29, 2011, 01:06 pm
New technology recently introduced by Flyvie, a developer and manufacturer of video capturing and debriefing systems for aviators, is set to improve training and hopefully reduce the number of pilot life insurance claims.
The new flight recorder is called Flyvie 2160 Pro and it will enhance the general aviation training experience through improved multi-video flight recording. The device utilizes two high-definition 1080P cameras, GPS accelerometers, in-flight tags, cockpit audio and other aircraft data which will be captured on SD memory cards and be ready for immediate debrief on the ground.
Flyvie 2160 Pro is both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled and can be interacted with by using tablet computers and smartphones.
The company also revealed a new prop filtering service for Flyvie users, which allows them to remove the propeller artifacts from videos that are taken from a view looking out single-engine propeller planes.
Anything that can help student pilots learn the skills they need is a good thing, as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reports that there were 1,384 total general aviation accidents last year. Two hundred and sixty-seven of these incidents were fatal, resulting in 453 deaths.
