Icelandair, the innovative airline and Iceland’s flag carrier, has chosen CabinVu from AD Aerospace, an AD Group company, to improve safety and security on board its B757 aircraft. CabinVu increases cockpit security by giving the pilots’ a clear view of any activity outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys from their usual seated positions and therefore greatly improving their situational awareness.
“At Icelandair our first focus is on providing safe, reliable and convenient services and the addition of CabinVu makes our aircraft and therefore our customers safer ” said Jens Bjarnason VP Icelandair Technical Services. “We see AD Aerospace as the best choice as they, like us, focus on their customers needs.”
CabinVu, the popular choice for cockpit door surveillance, provides pilots with a forward looking, clear and unobstructed view of the area outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys. A series of cameras are linked to either one or two monitors and associated controllers within easy reach of the pilots for ease and comfort of use.
With the view provided by the system the pilots can visually identify anyone requesting entry and take appropriate action, should an incident arise. This is in line with recommendations from ICAO Annex 6, EUROCAE ED-123 and provides compliance with EU-OPS 1.1255 Sub Part S, FAA 14 CFR 121.313(k) and 14 CFR 121.584 (a). CabinVu is also good for operators due to its low weight and simple installation.
“Icelandair is a very prestigious addition to the family of airlines across Europe and the World fitting AD Aerospace safety and security systems,” said Mike Horne, Managing Director, AD Aerospace Ltd. “We are very pleased to have won the business of such an exciting and dynamic airline.”
FlightVu equipment has been or is being installed on aircraft for Icelandair, Europe Airpost, Boeing, airBaltic, Austrian Airlines, GECAS, ILFC, Neos, Privilege, Orient Thai, Comair, Hong Kong Express, Hong Kong Airways, bmi, British Airways, JetBlue, Thomsonfly, Air Asia, Corsair, easyJet, Hainan, Germania, TUIfly, Sama and MyTravel amongst others.
