    Yes...and not necessarily. The crash recorder is only compulsory for aircraft over certain weight and passenger numbers. It gets further complicated that not all aircraft need data recorders. There are three types of crash recorder:

    CVR - Cockpit Voice Recorder (records audio only)
    FDR - Flight Data Recorder (records Parameters such as pitch, roll, altitude etc)

    Combi - records both


    Another type is coming which will do all the above plus image recording.

    Anyway...suffice to say an AW109 is not "required" to have a recorder fitted but Agusta did make the decision to fit recorders wherever possible as a matter of course. The 109 was one of the borderline cases.

    Here is the news....

    The image recording reminds me of an air accident of a Russian airliner where they let a teenager fly the plane only to crash it killing all aboard.

    The images can be very useful but hope they don't become public in future for TV documentaries.

    So... our accountant screwed up my taxes, and I have to pay an extra $1500. Pfft... That is my news of the day.

    Ouch. I presume you won't be paying the accountant, or that they have professional indemnity insurance?

    Currently they're not focussing on the crew.....they'll be recording control positions and instruments only

    Unfortunately, I already paid him. I have been in contact with him about it, and he is blaming my former employer, for sending the wrong form. So.. pft... I have to pay it.

    I sure won't be using him for my next tax assessment.
