Guardian Mobility updates FDM STC for AS350

30th September 2011 - 09:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Guardian Mobility today announced that its STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) for installation of its Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) equipment on the Eurocopter AS350 family of helicopters, already in service, has been modified to enhance functionality. These enhancements add real-time satellite communications and a powerful Air Data Computer. Approval is imminent.

In addition to the full-featured FDM system to support Flight and Maintenance Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA/MOQA), the set of monitored parameters has been expanded to include a complete set of altitude and speed parameters. The cost-effective satellite communications system allows the real-time transmission of exceedances and FOQA/MOQA events to authorized ground users as they happen. The communications system also allows the addition of a tablet to provide real-time, two-way text messaging.

Howard Pearl, Guardian's President and CEO, said, "These innovations add genuine value and practical tools required to provide a safer cockpit and a better bottom line." He added that "Our customers will have unprecedented access to flight data immediately and /or post flight that has been analyzed and summarized into information that is usable and provides immediate returns.”
