SPAES has installed the Spidertracks real-time aircraft tracking system on the instrument panel of a BK 117 helicopter, the company announced on 6 February.

The satellite-supported tracking system device can be mounted in the cockpit and used to track real time flight paths via the internet. The portable device has an antenna and transmits the GPS position of the aircraft, and height, speed and direction by iridium satellite network to a server. The data transfer automatically starts with power supply.

The helicopter equipped with the tracking system is used in regions in where data transmission is possible only by satellite transfer.

A minor change has been made in the EASA Part 21J design organisation of SPAES.
