The flight academy, in Titusville, Fla., has begun to implement the Aircraft Logging and Event Recording for Training and Safety (ALERTS) system into its fleet of Schweizer S-300CBi aircraft. The hardware and software package captures all aspects of the flight using an inertial measurement device designed for light and legacy aircraft. After each flight, instructor pilots use Appareo’s software to play back the flight in 3D, illustrating even complex concepts to their students. ALERTS combines flight data recording, monitoring and three-dimensional flight recreation to help aircraft operators minimize risks to their fleets. The system helps pilots maintain safe flying practices by tracking each flight in detail, then automatically analyzing it to be sure that all aspects of the flight were within acceptable limits.
