Its new STC approval supports installation on DHC-6 Series 100, 200, and 300 aircraft, and is built to support engine trend monitoring (ETM), flight data monitoring (FDM), and fuel management programs.
Latitude explains its engine data acquisition unit tracks engine parameters and corrects for atmospheric conditions, enabling an analysis and detection tool to monitor and trend the health and stability of your aircraft engine. With the ENode, issues such as early hot section deterioration or bleed leaks can be discovered. Latitude explains this helps operators to avoid secondary engine damage, which means less unexpected aircraft downtime.
