The premier global supplier of flight data monitoring, flight-following, and satcom solutions, Latitude Technologies has received a Transport Canada-issued supplemental type certificate (STC) SA18-121 Issue 1 for its ENode engine data acquisition unit. The approval supports installation on DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 100, 200, and 300 aircraft, and is built to support engine trend monitoring (ETM), flight data monitoring (FDM), and fuel management programs.
Latitude’s 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 an aircraft engine. With the ENode, issues such as early hot section deterioration or bleed leaks can be discovered, helping operators to avoid secondary engine damage. This means less unexpected aircraft downtime, and more time spent in the air.
