SkyTrac Systems... ChopperCom (SATCOM)


[SatNews] SkyTrac Systems has been selected by VIH Helicopters Ltd (formerly Vancouver Island Helicopters) to provide its next generation flight following and SATCOM solutions. VIH Helicopters will equip its diverse fleet of Sikorsky, Kamov, Eurocopter, and Bell helicopters with SkyTracā€™s next generation ISAT-200 system. SkyTrac Systems will provide VIH Helicopters with more than the standard voice, text, and data. Facilitated by its in house software and hardware engineering capabilities, SkyTrac Systems will work with VIH to develop a solution to enable VIH to transport daily aircraft data logs over the Iridium satellite network. Pilots will complete flight logs at the end of each day which will then be automatically transmitted via satellite from the helicopter to VIH head office in Victoria, BC.
