Flightcell International’s DZMx aviation communications system has been successfully integrated with AKV’s ETM1000 helicopter engine trend monitoring system.

The integrated solution is designed to provide satellite and cellular voice, data and tracking services, along with  engine and exceedance monitoring, cycle count information, trend information, and the ability to send accurate cycle count data off the aircraft.

Audible and visual exceedance warnings are available in the cockpit. At the completion of a day’s flying and prior to the data being sent, pilots are automatically prompted to record required cycle count information from the display.

Drive train and cycle count data was accurately displayed on the front panel of the DZMx during the integration and testing. Information included Ng and Np total cycles as well as revenue/run time, engine starts and flight time.

Hamish Neill, VP, Flightcell International, said: ‘We are providing legacy aircraft operators with a highly effective and affordable means of monitoring engine parameters, exceedances, cycle counts and trends.

‘You have the option to use the DZMx as an on-board cycle counter as well as remotely send the data to a tracking service provider.’
