New program makes virtual tracking easier for flight schools

June 21, 2011, 11:19 am

A new aviation program called Wi-flight takes a complete fleet tracking system and combines it with a debriefing tool that can be used by instructors and students, according to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.

This newly available system uses a small device that mounts to the glareshield, an outdoor wi-fi access point and a website. The unit is placed in the aircraft and logs data as soon as the master switch turns on, the association reports.

The data is then sent to the server, logging airspeed, altitude, location, takeoffs and other flight related information. Schools will be able to use the information for anything they want, possibly helping students become better pilots and encourage more new aviation enthusiasts to invest in pilots life insurance.

Students and teachers can log on to the website and view a particular flight in Google Earth while listening to the audio, according to the news source. The system is based on a subscription service so the cost may vary depending on the size of the fleet and amount of data that needs to be stored.
