AvConnect and Spidertracks
A Game Changer for General Aviation Safety and Efficiency
If you think AvConnect was efficient before, wait until you see what it can do with spidertracks. For the first time, pilots no longer have to think about, or take the time, to manually log any flight-related details or update their aircraft times.
We do it for you. Automatically. Every time you fly.
Why AvConnect and Spidertracks?
AvConnect is constantly looking for—and developing—the most innovative solutions to simplify aircraft operation and ownership. The release of our GPS flight tracking via the iPhone sparked the idea to look further for an even more streamlined tracking solution to solidify real-time aircraft and flight data gathering for pilots, owner/operators, fleet managers, and maintenance directors.
Spidertracks is an integrated aircraft flight following solution providing both hardware, which combines GPS, antenna and satellite communication in one box, and innovative web-based software to offer real-time, anywhere satellite tracking via the Iridium satellite network.
The integration of spidertracks and AvConnect technologies now provides customers with the unparalleled benefit of completely automating the aircraft tracking process, using leading aircraft safety/in-flight monitoring and the most advanced post-flight information and data transfer to create the most efficient means by which to manage general aviation aircraft.
Now, for the first time, every flight is recorded in real-time—accurately and reliably—and posted instantly to your online records.
How it Works
AvConnect uses the satellite data directly from the spider in your aircraft to immediately calculate your logbook and aircraft times, every time you fly.
After each flight, your AvConnect account is automatically updated with the following details: power up, off block, wheels up, wheels down, on block, and power down. The location, speed, altitude and direction of flight is also recorded, as well as your aircraft times.
If you have an iPhone™ or an iPad™, you will receive instant notification of your recent flight. The data is there. Edit, send, or save it for later. Your logbook entries are done, and your hobbs and tach times are updated. Your maintenance times are calculated, triggering any reminders or notifications sent by AvConnect to the pilot or the team of people managing your aircraft. Your flight path via Google Earth is also sent to you for instant viewing.
The end result—everyone who needs to know anything about your aircraft or flight has just been informed. Your work is done!
