the Eurocopter AS350 family of helicopters, already in serv-


ice, has been modified to enhance functionality. These enhancements add real-time satellite communications and a powerful Air Data Computer. Approval is imminent. In addition to the full-featured


FDM system to support Flight and Maintenance Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA/MOQA), the set of monitored parameters has been expanded to include a complete set of altitude and speed parameters. The cost effective satellite communica- tions system allows the real-time transmission of exceedances and FOQA/MOQA events to authorized ground users as they happen. The communications system also allows the addition of a tablet to provide real-time, two-way text messaging. "These innovations add gen-


uine value and practical tools required to provide a safer cock- pit and a better bottom line," said Howard Pearl, Guardian's President and CEO, said. "Our customers will have unprece- dented access to flight data immediately and/or post-flight that has been analyzed and summarized into information that is usable and provides immedi- ate returns,” he added. ◆
