Bombardier Q400 Skycam Installation

Bombardier Q400 Skycam Installation

Since 2001 and the growth of the threat of terrorism, the requirement for flight deck security has become part of the overall aviation security measures. Some national airworthiness authorities have required airlines to equip their aircraft with cockpit door surveillance systems, also known as flight deck door monitoring systems. This can take the form of a video surveillance system for the pilots to visually monitor the entire area outside the cockpit door and visually identify persons requesting entry, and to detect potential suspicious behaviour and threats.

GVH Aerospace, together with the OEM of Skycam, has responded to the challenge of flight deck security with the Skycam closed circuit flight deck door monitoring video system. GVH Aerospace qualified the Skycam equipment and integrated it into the customer’s Bombardier Q400 fleet. The Skycam installation was approved as an STC that can be retrofitted to all Q400 aircraft, and has since been approved as an STC for use on the Airbus A320 family of aircraft. The Skycam installation has also been approved as a minor modification for the Airbus A330, Boeing 737, Boeing 747SP, Boeing 757, BAE-146, and Bombardier CL-600 aircraft. This resulted in:

  • A quick and affordable way of complying with the NAA requirement to monitor cockpit doors
  • EASA-approved modification and parts, allowing easy transfer of the aircraft to other regulatory jurisdiction during lease transfers
