North Flight Data Systems (Booth No. 7841) has announced it will integrate and certify its lightweight aircraft recording system (Lars) in the Bell 407. In cooperation with helicopter services giant PHI and Rolls-Royce, North Flight will be integrating its voice, video and flight-data recording systems into a Bell 407 airframe.

The system will not only provide detailed internal AHRS (attitude/heading reference system) data but will interface with the Rolls-Royce M250-C47B Fadec to provide high-fidelity engine information. The Lars package has already been installed in PHI’s EC135 fleet.

Also at Heli-Expo 2012, the Arlington, Texas-based firm will be promoting its flight data monitoring system known as Lamp (Line Activity Monitoring Program).
