Virtual FDR™ from Spidertracks equips you with accessible ‘over the air’ aircraft data and insights from a simple, easy to install, lightweight, and affordable solution.
Virtual FDR provides you with powerful data and insights into where your aircraft are, and how they’re being flown.
Virtual FDR uses an adaptive sampling algorithm to provide a deeper, richer, high-resolution flight track. In addition to the Spider's real-time reporting capabilities, Virtual FDR logs a 4D vector every 15-seconds. This flight data is recorded on the Spider and transmitted in a bundled package with the next 1-minute position report. The result? An incredibly accurate representation of an aircraft’s flight path and movements.
Changing course? We’ve got you covered. Heading changes trigger five-second reporting and a GPS transmission upon completion — providing you with a smoother track and more precise data.
Gain even greater insights into your aircraft’s movements. AHRS data is captured continuously and transmitted over the air -- allowing simple and easy access to information about the aircraft’s orientation and position.
Experience your post-flight review in stunning detail with Spidertracks’ new 3D Flight Replay feature. Utilising the data captured from Virtual FDR, you can see your aircraft’s journey with powerful accuracy.
Our partnership with the industry-leading Iridium satellite network ensures that you’re always covered in real-time no matter where you are on the globe — and regardless of whether or not you have cell reception.
At Spidertracks, we believe in customer lead innovation. Every day we’re working hard to build innovative solutions to make the aviation community a safer place to live and operate in. Join the movement as Virtual FDR evolves.
Enhanced flight tracking data is only available on Spider 6, 7, 8 or X hardware. AHRS data and 3D Flight Replay are only available with Spider X hardware.
