FedEx has selected the Appareo Systems Vision 1000 cockpit recorder for the 240 Cessna 208 Caravans used for its cargo feeder operations. The installations are under way and due for completion by mid-2018.
The Vision 1000 is a lightweight, compact device that is installed in the headliner in the cockpit.
During flight operations, the Vision 1000 records inertial data, ambient and intercom audio, and high-resolution cockpit imagery, according to Appareo.
After the data is captured, FedEx will be able to run its flight operational quality assurance (FOQA) using Appareo’s Alerts flight data analysis software. Alerts is undergoing re-engineering and this is expected to be finished in early 2018.
