Phoenix Heli-Flight To Complete Iris Upgrades

 - February 28, 2018, 1:19 PM

Phoenix Heli-Flight (N2207) will upgrade older analog audio, video, and flight-data recording devices with the Outerlink Iris System. The Canadian company will work with Outerlink and Maxcraft Avionics to develop Transport Canada and FAA STCs for the Airbus Helicopters EC130T2 and EC120, and for AS350B2s equipped with both analog and vehicle engine multifunction display instrumentation.

Replacing older technology with the Iris system will provide digital voice, video, and flight-data recording with dual-satcom-network connectivity and push-to-talk technology. The system allows customers to synchronize this information on one display with the ability to add a 3D simulation over Google Earth.

The Iris system also holds FAA and Transport Canada certifications for the Airbus EC135, EC145, and AS350, as well as the Sikorsky S-92, Leonardo Helicopters AW139, and Bell 206 and 407.
