Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Can Wi-Flight integrate with my existing flight scheduling or dispatch software ?
A. We currently
support automatic determination of crew on board via
FlightSchedulePro's email reservation capability.
Wi-Flight offers a complete Application
Programming Interface for exchanging information
between Wi-Flight and other systems. We look forward to
integrating Wi-Flight with most popular reservation and
dispatch software systems based on customer demands.
A. No. A great deal of effort has gone into ensuring that the Wi-Fi radio will never be activated in flight, without the use of any geographic database onboard the Flight Data Recorder.
A. The Wi-Flight GTA02 Flight Data Recoder is not a real time flight tracking solution, but rather a data logger. Real time flight tracking would typically require a satellite transceiver such as Spot, Iridium or Inmarsat D. We are however looking at the possibility of integrating satellite-based tracking as a possible input source to the Wi-Flight playback and analysis software. Note that SPOT does not provide altitude information so it could not be used for analysis. Please contact us if you are interested in such a solution.
Wi-Flight GTA02 is a portable electronics device that
requires a certified power source from the
aircraft. This may be the aicraft's existing cigar
lighter socket, but we strongly recommend instead that a
cigar lighter socket be installed under the
instrument panel, dedicated to Wi-Flight. Another
option is to power the Wi-Flight GTA02 FDR directly
using the Lone
Star Aviation's certified, TSO'ed 24 volt to 5 volt
A. We can create just about any custom alert to suit your needs. Proximity/boundary alerts (polygons, circles, cylinders, etc...), excessive rates of descent or climb, G exceedances, pavement restriction types for airports and custom hard deck altitudes/durations are just some of the custom alerts that we can add upon request.
