Earlier this year at Heli-Expo 2020, Spidertracks announced their new hardware, Spider X, a simple and affordable plug-and-play solution, enabling aircraft owners and operators to see where and how their aircraft are flying. Spider X collects critical data from an aircraft, such as roll, pitch, yaw, speed and altitude; and delivers this wirelessly to the Spidertracks platform.
Making flight data available and knowing what is happening during a flight allows Spidertracks customers to use this actionable information to avoid or reduce emergency events. Insights from Spidertracks will provide both operational and safety efficiencies, by utilizing data to deliver flight safety events based on the aircraft’s attitude, vertical speed, altitude, heading, and exceedances.
A mission of saving lives
Dave Blackwell, CEO of Spidertracks, said of this new partnership: “This is an exciting time for the industry. Maverick Helicopters’ position on safety aligns with our mission of saving lives, and we’re thrilled to have them on the journey with us.
“The same barriers exist today in flight data monitoring that existed in tracking when we started. Our latest evolution, Insights, aims to bridge the gap and break down those barriers by utilizing data captured on Spider X to calculate safety events that indicate high-risk maneuvers, and deliver it in a simple and easy format.”
