Spidertracks is proud to announce an agreement with Robinson Helicopter Company to include the Spider S5 as the helicopter manufacturer’s real-time flight tracking offering in their options catalog for the R22, R44 and R66 models. “We think the spidertracks system offers an excellent overall value and believe that satellite-based position tracking provides significant safety benefits over ELTs” stated Kurt Robinson, President of Robinson Helicopters.
According to spidertracks’ CEO James McCarthy, all aircraft will be pre-wired with a Spider power cord and a mounting bracket will be installed at the most effective location on top of the instrument cluster offering clear view to the sky for optimal connectivity to GPS and Iridium satellites. “We are so excited about this new cooperation with such an important partner and our ongoing commitment to Safety and Operational Efficiency, Made Easy.
