Dare Medflight installs Skytrac’s camera on H145
Dare MedFlight has completed the installation of Skytrac’s high resolution aviation camera on its H145 helicopter, Skytrac announced on 30 July.
Dare MedFlight is an air medical transport operator of Dare County, North Carolina.
The Skytrac aviation camera has been designed to provide operators with better fidelity audio visual recording during flight while also minimising the need to change data cards or over-write stored data. It is capable of recording up to eight hours of video at 1080p and 15fps.
The camera comes in a kit format that allows up to two flush-mounted lenses to be installed internally or externally. Wide lens and fine detail image sensor kits are available to accurately record flight controls and capture maximum field of view.
The camera kit can be used with Skytrac’s ISAT-200A transceiver and data acquisition unit or as standalone hardware to supplement existing flight data monitoring and tracking solutions.
Chad Jones, director of operations, Dare MedFlight, said: ‘As an air ambulance operator, we have a mission to deliver safe, efficient and reliable service. We look to the latest technologies to support us in this mission.
‘Adding a high resolution camera to the flight deck provides a new, objective input for our safety management programmes and allows us to enhance training for our pilots. Skytrac offered a lightweight and cost-effective option that could be easily retrofitted on our HEMS-equipped H145T2.’
