HELI-EXPO 2011, ORLANDO, FL – Spidertracks and AvConnect, an AvFusion, Inc. company, have teamed up to offer helicopter operators the first fully automated and real-time tracking and pilot and aircraft records-keeping solution.

The partnership brings together spidertracks’ satellite-based flight following and tracking system with AvConnect’s flight data recording software to create a real-time aircraft management and tracking solution that will save helicopter operators time; ensure complete records are kept, and ultimately, reduce costs.

“The combination of these game-changing technologies gives our customers the unparalleled benefit of receiving complete and immediate flight data directly into their account in real-time,” says AvConnect CEO Erik Murrey.

“Pilots no longer have to think about, or take the time, to log any flight-related information. Every flight detail is recorded in real-time, which in turn automatically updates personal logbooks, aircraft status and flight entries, hobbs and tach times. The end result— anyone needing that aircraft information is informed instantly. Maintenance times are automatically calculated, triggering any reminders or notifications sent by AvConnect to the pilot or the team of people managing that aircraft. AvConnect iPhoneTM and iPadTM customers have the added bonus of accessing and managing their flight data; and viewing their flight track map via Google Earth from anywhere, at any time.”

Spidertracks is quickly establishing itself as a cost-effective AFF aircraft tracking solution with the added benefit of automatic SOS alerting in the event of an accident.

“This partnership enables AvConnect customers to access all the benefits of real-time tracking, and knowing exactly where all their aircraft are at all times. And the peace of mind of knowing that if anything goes wrong, spidertracks will automatically send out SOS alerts within minutes,” says Sales Director Bruce Bartley.

“Spidertracks clients who want to maximize the efficiency of their operations through more effective pilot and aircraft data management can now access this service seamlessly. It’s a real win-win for fleet customers,” he says.
