Position Paper

Protection of all Cockpit Recordings

Dec 21, 2023


The lack of ICAO Annex 13 definitions of "cockpit voice recordings" and "airborne image recordings" leaves it with the States to decide which onboard recordings should be protected in accordance with this Annex, and which should not. IFALPA believes that these two terms should be interpreted as ANY recording made in the cockpit, irrespective of how it is produced, and not only recordings made by systems or devices fitted to complement accident/incident investigation.
