Jeppesen and Flyvie Inc., a developer and manufacturer of video capturing and debriefing systems for the aviation industry, have entered into a strategic relationship to develop and introduce a video flight recording and debriefing solution for general aviation training.
The new flight capture solution combined with Jeppesen’s aviation training programs and course materials will create a dynamic integrated training solution, officials with both companies said. The new video capability also will be used as a component of the Jeppesen Skymanager system, which is used by flight training organizations to coordinate and manage student pilot training programs.
“Implementing web-based training solutions developed with Flyvie technology and Jeppesen expertise and integration capabilities will revolutionize the experience for student pilots throughout their flight training program,” said David Wright, Jeppesen senior manager, Training Solutions. “Through this partnership with Flyvie, we have the opportunity to improve the effectiveness of flight training and the methodologies used train the next generation of general aviation pilots.”
Flyvie systems record video from two cameras, and also GPS data and audio from internal and external aircraft communication. Captured imagery includes the pilot’s view as well as the instrument panel and the pilot’s manipulation of the flight controls. The recorded flight path can then be viewed through Google Earth using Flyvie’s web based applications.
