Appareo Granted Part 27 STC AML for New 4K Ultra-HD Flight Data Recorder
Appareo announces the certification of AIRS-400, its 4K Ultra high-definition Airborne Image Recording System. AIRS-400 has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for Airbus AS350, Bell 206, and Bell 407.
In addition to recording 4K Ultra HD video, AIRS-400 captures pilot intercom system audio, ambient audio, and detailed flight data. With its inertial measurement units, AIRS-400 captures WAAS GPS (altitude, latitude, longitude, ground speed, vertical speed), attitude data (pitch, roll, yaw), rates of rotation, and acceleration data (G forces) — all in a unit that weighs 11 ounces. It is equipped for cellular-data offload and comes with options for ARINC 429 input, ED-155 audio output, and RS-422 output, making it the most versatile and flexible lightweight flight data recorder on the market.
AIRS-400 is also one of the easiest FDM devices to install. It's small, self-contained system requires only aircraft power, ground, and GPS antenna connections. The simple installation makes it easy to obtain aircraft field approvals.
AIRS-400 is now shipping. Appareo plans to add to the STC AML in the future.
