Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring with FODR



The EIT Avionics FODR announces affordable Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring.

The NTSB and USHST place critical emphasis on Flight Data Monitoring for documented safety benefits. The EIT Avionics FODR is a high performance data recorder designed to meet 14 CFR part 135.607 Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring requirements. With FODR, even single ship operators can implement FDM safety improvements and reduce costly operational errors. FODR = data for better decision making.

The FODR unit weighs 1 lb., and is easy to install. 24 air data, rotor and engine parameters are automatically recorded 5 x per second. GPS is recorded once per second. Data capture is permanent, time/date stamped by flight, and retrievable by USB to your laptop. Monitoring is easy with free data viewing software provided. No need to review hours of video post flight.

Uniquely, FODR interfaces with ESAID, a display and annunciation device, to enhance IN FLIGHT situational awareness of critical parameters.

Initially, FODR and ESAID will be STC’d for the Robinson R44 Raven II, with additional models following soon.
