Cockpit Airborne Image Recording System for EC145/ H145 (CS-29) installation

Our H145 design installs a crash protected cockpit Airborne Image Recorder (AIR) to the Airbus Helicopters H145 rotorcraft, this is in addition to the rotorcraft’s required FDR & CVR. The system records cockpit imagery in accordance with EUROCAE ED-112A Part III ‘Class A’ and fulfils the requirements of Civil Aviation Authority Safety Directive SD-2018/002.

Like our CARS & AIRS modification for Eurocopter / Airbus EC135 (H135) installation the modification is available as either a 1 or 2 camera system which records the forward instrument panel and / or the overhead panel in Full HD 1080p video quality.

In the event of an incident / accident all recording will be stopped automatically via a dedicated inertia switch installed as part of the system ensuring preservation of recordings. As per the latest safety requirements the recorders are fitted with 90-day Underwater Locator Devices (ULD’s).

The H145 AIR ED-112A modification is available as either:

  • One camera system which records the forward instrument panel
    or a
  • Two camera system which records the forward instrument panel and the overhead panel
