General Aviation Flight Data Monitoring Survey
The general aviation flight data monitoring survey was developed as part of a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration aviation safety information analysis and sharing through the center for general aviation research concerning flight data monitoring in general aviation. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the familiarity and perceptions of the general aviation community concerning flight data monitoring capabilities and objectives. The link below will take you to a survey that contains 18 questions, (requiring approximately 5 minutes to complete). To take the survey please click here.
If you operate an aircraft that has flight data recording capabilities (such as those equipped with the Garmin G1000 Data Logger) and wish to contribute de-identified flight data to a national database, or have an interest in the topic, please contact Dave Esser at email@example.com.
