It all started in 2005 when a high profile New Zealander crashed his helicopter and was not found for two full weeks. Meanwhile, in the back of a garage in the middle of no-where, a few creative brains interested in aviation got talking over some instant coffee and biscuits about a better and more affordable way to find downed aircraft. Not too long after that decisive morning tea break the first Spider was born. And man it was beautiful!
The first Spider owner loved it so much he threw all his energy at two of the other guys and said ‘lets take over the world with this Spider!’. Since that day in early 2007 the spidertracks brand has grown, units have been sold to 99 countries, people have been saved, an office has been established in the US, and we have worked with great people. And we still proudly make all of our products right here in New Zealand!
Our mission is to increase the safety and operational efficiency of aviation businesses and their people. Through the development of creative and intuitive products we aim to delight our customers.
At spidertracks, we are committed to aviation and aviation safety. We are the plane spotters at the end of the runway and the pilots in the cockpit. We’ve been through flight schools and worked for charter companies. We know how demanding your business can be, and that’s why we’re here to be the easiest part of your operation.
