Flight Cameras

AirAsia, a Malaysian low-cost air carrier, has selected FlightVu Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems (CDSS) for seven Boeing B737-300 aircraft.

AD Aerospace of Manchester, UK and Aircraft Engineering & Installation Services Inc (AEI) of Orlando, Florida are providing the video security system and installation design respectively.  The FlightVu CDSS system enables the flight crew to view the area outside the flight deck door, including the adjacent galleys, from their usual seated positions. The pilots can visually identify anyone requesting entry and take appropriate action should an incident arise.

What they say

“AirAsia considers the safety and security of our passengers as our top priority,” said Tony Tang of AirAsia. “We believe that FlightVu CDSS further improve the systems and procedures we already have in place by giving our pilots a clear view of activity outside the cockpit door.” Security measures are being progressively improved and increased throughout the airline industry in recognition of the potential risks arising from terrorism and air rage, AD Aero report.  Although intrusion resistant cockpit doors have made pilots and the airlines safer, it has also isolated pilots leaving them unaware of what is happening in the cabin.  This is where CCTV comes in, the manufacturers add.

“We are extremely pleased to be providing FlightVu CDSS for AirAsia as our first of many customers in Asia.  By installing CDSS they have demonstrated that they take the safety of their passengers and crew very seriously,” said Mike Horne, Managing Director, AD Aerospace. “We believe that Cockpit Door Surveillance is an important part of in-flight security and adds to passengers’ confidence in flying with an airline.”

About the product

The FlightVu CDSS consists of two or three CCTV cameras linked to a LCD monitor or monitors strategically mounted in the cockpit pedestal. FlightVu systems have been or are being installed on aircraft for, Air Seychelles, AirAsia, bmi, Britannia, BWIA, Corsair, easyJet, FlyJet, Germania, Hapag Lloyd, Britannia Nordic, MyTravel and JetBlue among others.
