Pilots can now turn their iPads or iPhones into cockpit voice recorders. FlightLink is a free iOS app developed by Lightspeed Aviation to work with newer Zulu.2 headsets. All communications through the intercom are recorded and available for instant playback and permanent archiving. Multiple recordings may be stored either in Apple devices or in an iTunes account.
FlightLink allows for up to two minutes of instant playback of ATC transmissions, ensuring receipt of vital information. The entire flight can be recorded and saved for future use. With FlightLink, pilots can easily toggle from other apps to access recordings and notes. FlightLink also incorporates a scratchpad for the iPad so that pilots can make notes and diagrams with their fingertips.
FlightLink is available now for newer Zulu.2 headsets which are already enabled to work with the app. Older Zulu.2 headsets can be factory retrofitted for an additional fee. You download the free app for iPhone and iPad here: Lightspeed FlightLink App.
