    AerobytesEasy to use, stable and mature.

    Highly Automated. (replay, analysis, alerting, statistical export etc)

    In built reports allow drill down from statistics to flight data. (keeps focus on trends rather than events which cant be changed)

    SMS integration.(unique to Aerobytes why keep your safety data separated?)

    Built in animation with signs in sky.

    Log corrective actions and display over statistics to view effect. (unique to Aerobytes continuous improvement is what FDM is all about)

    Graphical design of state values and events no coding required over 300 events as standard

    Excellent support

    Focus is on causes of problems, not events (symptoms)

    130 customers worldwide including CHC Helicopters, MHS, Helicopters NZ, Petroleum Air Services.

    Selected by Flight Safety Foundation to provide FDM for HEMS FDM study
