Hi! We're Spidertracks.

We’re propelled every day by our desire to help make the aviation community a safer place to live and operate in.

From Pohangina to the World.

The idea for Spidertracks took root in 2005, when a high-profile New Zealander crashed his helicopter near West Coast of the North Island. The resulting search and rescue effort took two full weeks, and came at a huge financial and emotional toll for his loved ones.

National media coverage of this incident, caught the attention of a few creative and curious minds in Manawatu (New Zealand). They were baffled - surely there must be a better and more affordable way to locate downed aircraft!

Perplexed by the lack of a reliable and affordable solution, the team got to work in Pohangina Valley, and the idea for Spidertracks was born.
