Cockpit door surveillance for airBaltic Boeing fleet.

AD Aerospace : 30 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Latvian national airline gains additional cabin security with CabinVu surveillance systems for cockpit doors from AD Aerospace.
airBaltic, Latvia's national airline, has selected AD Aerospace to provide video based cockpit security systems for Boeing 737 and 757 commercial airliners. The CabinVu-123 Cockpit Door Monitoring Systems will enhance pilots situational awareness with a clear view of any activity outside the cockpity door and in the adjacent galleys, and enhances the secutiy of the cockpit.

"We selected AD Aerospace as we have been very happy with the FlightVu and CabinVu 123 systems we already have on Boeing 737-500 and 737-300 aircraft and CabinVu-123 offers improvements in weight and installation ," said Oleg Zarianski, Avionics Engineer of airBaltic. "This will add to the already high levels of safety and security we offer our passengers and crew."

CabinVu-123, which has less LRUs, lower weight and simplified installation than earlier systems, provides pilots with a forward looking, clear and unobstructed view of the area outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys from their usual seated positions. A series of cameras link to either one or two monitors and controllers in the cockpit set forward of the pilots for ease and comfort of use.

This means that the pilots can visually identify anyone requesting entry and take appropriate action should an incident arise. This is in line with recommendations from International Civil Aviation Organisation ICAO Annex 6, EUROCAE ED-123 and provides compliance with FAA 14 CFR 121.313(k) and 14 CFR 121.584 (a) and with the forthcoming EU-OPS 1.1255 Sub Part S.

"AD Aerospace is extremely pleased to have been chosen by airBaltic to supply these systems to enhance their aircraft security," said Mike Horne, Managing Director, AD Aerospace. "I'm sure their pilots and crew will find it a very useful addition to their safety and that of the passengers."

FlightVu equipment has been or is being installed on aircraft for Boeing, Air Baltic, Austrian Airlines, Neos, Blue Panorama, Orient Thai, Comair, Hong Kong Express, Hong Kong Airways, bmi, British Airways, jetBlue, Thomsonfly, Air Asia, Corsair,easyJet, Hainan, Germania, TUIfly, Sama and MyTravel amongst others.
