This morning (December 8th) Fortune.com, the online version of Fortune Magazine, featured a commentary by FLYHT board member and former Chairman of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, Mark Rosenker.
In the commentary, Mr. Rosenker declares “The technology is available.” He was referring to FLYHT Aerospace’s Automated Flight Information and Reporting System (AFIRS™) and its ability to stream recorder data from the flight data recorder (FDR) of an aircraft while in flight.
In the article he states, “This (AFIRS) offers the value of not only providing the actual location of the aircraft, but also an understanding of how it is – its real-time status. Data can be streamed as a result of a “trigger” that might occur during a flight incident. Or, data could simply be streamed throughout the flight for routine flight status information.”
In conclusion he declares, “We have the technology to make airline travel even safer – and we need to use it.”
