Cockpit image recording on helicopters

Nov 08, 2013

Abstract

Recent technology has produced small, lightweight data recording devices suitable for use in small helicopters that lack traditional flight data recorders. The most popular models of these devices have built-in video recorders that image the cockpit area. While IFALPA pilots have long supported the use of flight data recorders recognising the potential they hold for improving flight safety, the use of image recorders is opposed as explained in this position paper.
