EIT Avionics, LLC has announced its Flight Operations Data Recorder (FODR) has received a supplemental type certificate (No. SR04411NY) for installation in the Robinson R44 Raven II.
The EIT Avionics FODR is a high-performance data recorder designed to meet 14 CFR part 135.607 helicopter flight data monitoring requirements.
With FODR, even single ship operators can implement flight data management (FDM) safety improvements and reduce costly operational errors. FODR provides data for better decision making.
Uniquely, FODR interfaces with ESAID, a display and annunciation device, to enhance in-flight situational awareness of critical parameters. ESAID calculates density altitude, power, hover and airspeed performance limitations twice per second, giving the pilot unprecedented situational awareness.
