L3Harris Technologies received Air Transport World’s (ATW) Aviation Technology Achievement award during its 48th Annual Airline Industry Achievement Award Ceremony. The ATW awards were established in 1974 to recognize outstanding innovation and performance in the air transport industry.

L3Harris was recognized for developing and implementing professional Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) into its Airline Academy ab initio flight training. This technology allows instructors and students to mitigate risks and improve safety and training efficiency.

L3Harris’ FDM provides operational trend data for detailed instructor feedback and preventative maintenance. This technology also provides academy cadets with flight data to improve their training and development.

“This industry-leading technology is making a tangible difference in our approach to pilot training,” said Dave Coward, General Manager and Vice President, Training Services, L3Harris. “It provides unique risk-mitigation data and enhances aspiring airline pilot development. We are incredibly proud of the technology and excited about what lies ahead as we continue to develop these capabilities.”

L3Harris processes more than 18,000,000 commercial black-box Flight Data Recorder records. L3 Harris has Flight Data Service Centers in the UK, U.S. and Asia.
