Flight Data Monitoring - Have You Flown With It On Board?

Recommended Posts

Have you flown a light/medium helicopter equipped with a Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring (HFDM) system under VFR? If so, I would like to hear about your experiences.


I am a pilot (rotary/fixed) and am also conducting a study towards a MSc. in Human Factors and System Safety. At several conferences I have had the opportunity to speak with operators, manufacturers, HFDM vendors and data analysts. However, the voices of everyday pilots have been largely absent from the discussions of integrating this technology. For this reason I am very interested to speak with VFR pilots who are flying with HFDM on board.


My goal is to explore the following question:

"What are pilots’ lived experiences with HFDM systems, while flying non-routine flights in light to medium helicopters operating under VFR?"


I am looking to talk with 5-8 pilots (~30 minutes each) either in person, by telephone or Skype. All interviewees will remain anonymous; names of pilots/employers/vendors will be kept confidential.


Please send me a personal message or email at owen.HFDM@gmail.com
