Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 3 July 2009

Airbus has launched a study into reinforcing flight data recovery, including, but not limited to, extended data transmission for commercial airliners, so that in the event of accidents, critical flight information can still be recovered and released to the investigating authorities.

Tom Enders, President and CEO of Airbus said, "Gathering information from accidents is vitally important to further improve the safety of flying. Various technical means for reinforcing flight data recovery and data transmission to ground centres are principally available. We will now study different options for viable commercial solutions, including those where our experience with real-time data transmission from our own test aircraft could support the further development of such solutions."

The study will be conducted by Patrick Gavin, Head of Airbus Engineering, and Charles Champion, Head of Customer Services, and will attempt to tackle the technological issues as well as data protection and privacy concerns.

 Airbus will include industrial partners, research institutions, and international airworthiness and investigation authorities in the study.
