FDR (Flight Data) & CVR (Voice) Readouts
Aircraft operators are required to perform periodic maintenance readouts on flight recorder systems, usually at least once a year.
This requirement applies to both Flight Data Recorders and Solid State Cockpit Voice Recorders.
FDS is the leading service provider for the readout of FDR and CVR recorders providing these services to more than 250 customers worldwide for a wide range of aircraft and flight recorder types. Analysis services are provided for both annual serviceability / parameter correlation checks, incident reports and cockpit voice recorder system & intelligibility checks.
Readout Analysts examine all recorded parameters for their validity and serviceability and create recognised CASA or EASA readout reports which state the condition of the aircraft’s flight recorder system serviceability.
For customers under our readout service contract, FDS can also provide download equipment such as the HHMPI or STARS system as part of the managed readout service.
