The internal memory can hold two hours of video and audio and more than 200 hours of flight data. The removable SD card holds 64 hours of video and audio, and more than 200 hours of flight data.
“(Flight data monitors allow) fleet operators to monitor trends, identify areas of risk, and deploy training programs to mitigate those risks,” said Appareo President David Batcheller.
The AIRS-400 can be installed in new or legacy aircraft in a single day and has a retail price of $12,500.
