It’s not required equipment, so why do we need it?

There is actually a Helicopter AirMedical rule (FAA Rule 135.607): by April 23, 2018, all helicopter air ambulances must be equipped with a flight data monitoring system that is capable of recording the aircraft’s state, condition and performance. With its self-contained design and one-day installation, the Vision 1000 is the easiest way to achieve this rule compliance. Many new contracts are now requiring Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) because the value of having this information is very clear in reducing risk. Even when it’s not required, this tool can allow you to:

  • Mitigate risk by proactively identifying and addressing it
  • Reduce maintenance costs using the imaging for maintenance investigations
  • Limit your liability and streamline accident/incident investigations by having a record of what happened
  • Enhance training for your specific operations–get the most value from each training dollar
  • Set yourself apart from the competition by easily showing the level of safety you’re operating at
