Appareo Systems of Fargo, N.D., and Eurocopter plan to unveil today a flight-data monitoring system scheduled to be certified for the AS 350 B2/B3 by the end of this year or in the first quarter of next year. Called Alerts Vision 1000, it is the latest extension of Appareo’s Alerts (aircraft logging and event recording for training and safety) product line. Alerts Vision 1000 combines–into a single, small package–cockpit imaging, GPS/INS monitoring, cockpit ambient acoustic data and a flight-data monitor. First deliveries and installations are expected in early 2010.
