Geolocation

OpenFlyers includes a geolocation module enabled for aeronautics. It can be associated with the AeroBox, our tracking and registering product.

Our geolocation module has been especially designed for flight analysis. It offers flight path or cross sectional views from a simple browser. It is then easy to debrief and keep a flight made.

In association with the AeroBox, it unveils all its functionalities and permits to geolocalize an aircraft in real time.

AeroBox

The AeroBox is a wireless, mobile, autonomous box, “all-in-one”, for general aviation and aerial work.

The AeroBox serves safety, pedagogy, management and friendliness by sharing and tracking flights.

Each box is equipped with a GPS and a barometric altimeter, which determines its horizontal and vertical position

There is also an accelerometer that tracks the evolution of the load factor and a GSM-GPRS transmitter that sends data to the OpenFlyers AeroBox web servers for real-time rendering of the flight through the 3.0 OpenFlyers version.

Thanks to its transportability and its low overall dimensions, the AeroBox can be installed in any aircraft, without any maintenance cost. You can also pool the box on several aircraft.

There are several areas of use for the AeroBox:

  • Training: The AeroBox, associated with OpenFlyers 3.0 map server, is the best educational tool to deliver pilot trainees feedback after dual instruction or solo flights or simply to explore parts of the airfield traffic pattern.
  • Safety: Where is the aircraft? Where is the student? How high were we? The AeroBox answers to these questions.
  • Friendliness: Experience live events, air rallye, directly from the clubhouse!
  • Flight management: Block times are entered automatically in OpenFlyers in order to track flights.
