Recommendation Date:27 February 2014
On 26 February 2014the Commission recommended that the Director of Civil Aviation encourage the use of flight tracking devices, especially for use in aircraft operating in remote areas around New Zealand.
In our draft recommendation response 31 January 2014, the Director commented that the CAA provide for the fitment of Flight Tracking Devices (FTDs) by operators and this can be achieved in accordance with the relevant provisions of AC 43-14. The CAA will continue to encourage operators to fit FTDs in this manner. The CAA considers the action sufficient to satisfy the closure of the Commission's recommendation.
