Access and Review Previous Flights
FlightReview is a valuable analysis tool providing easy access and review of
past flights and approaches. It combines Flight Management System (FMS)
action sequences with 3D rendering of the flight plan over Google Earth™ for a
virtual view from the pilot’s seat of any previously recorded flight. Simply take
the flight data recorded by the FMS Internal Flight Data Recorder (IFDR) and
upload it to the FlightReview program on a PC to “fly” the latest flight plan.
A “play-by-play” feature provides Flat Panel Control Display Unit (FPCDU) page
displays with associated key presses along with aircraft position, speed and
altitude. Event markers, recorded by the FMS during flight, and bookmarks,
created in FlightReview, make for easy search of specific events during flight.
FlightReview is useful for demonstrations, training, Flight Operations Quality
Assurance (FOQA) and analysis of flight test results.
