Missing plane: Aero to install navigational flight tracker in aircraft


To monitor the movement, heading and location of its airplanes at all times, Aerocontractors Company of Nigeria is set to install navigational flight tracker on its airplanes.

To monitor the movement, heading and location of its airplanes at all times, Aerocontractors Company of Nigeria is set to install navigational flight tracker on its airplanes.

This move, which is the emerging trend on the global aviation scene, will erase any possibility of suffering the incident of missing plane as being experienced by Wings Aviation, which Beechcraft 1900D has been missing since March 15.

According to the media consultant to the airline, Deba Uwadiae, the Aero management took the decision to ensure the safety and security of its airplanes and passengers.
On how the device works, he said the airline will, from its operational base in Lagos, use the navigational flight tracker to zoom on the airline’s aircraft in flight and track it mile by mile all the way to its destination.

Uwadiae further said that messages, where needed, can also be passed to the pilot via the tracker.
Already, the navigational flight tracker is already in use in the United States as airlines get a Live datafeed from the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Air Traffic Servers, which is updated every minute, for their operations.
With that, airlines can see the entire aviation systems for the USA and Canada live. They can also see over 6,000 aircraft in the sky at a go.

“Using the powerful search feature, an airline can filter the skies right down to display only aircraft from a particular airline or even aircraft type. For instance, with the flight tracker, you can determine how many Cessna 172’s are in the sky on the filed flight plans right now.”

An airline can the zoom right in, see any aircraft’s planned flight plan and track it minute by minute or mile by mile right through its destinations.” The birds’ eye view of the entire system allows airline even zoom right into a busy airport such as Atlanta International, watch in amazement as often up to 250 aircraft are approaching and departing the airport. You can also use it as ATCs vector aircraft in and line them up for a landing and departure every minute”, Uwadiae explained.
