FAA to Improve Black Boxes

Posted under Uncategorized

The FAA has announced plans to improve the black boxes found in airplanes.

Black boxes, which record the happenings of an airplane, provide invaluable information to investigators if a crash should occur.

The FAA has mandated that the black boxes record the last 2 hours of cockpit conversation rather than the current 15 to 30 minute requirement.  Digital flight data recorders, which record speed, altitude and other critical information, must now also record more data more frequently.

The devices, contrary to their names, are orange to make them easier to find in a crash site.
