AD Aerospace Ltd, the designer and manufacturer of the FlightVu range of aircraft video systems, has relocated its Head Office to a new larger building at Abbots Park, Preston Brook, Cheshire. This is support by an office in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and AD Aerospace is currently looking at expansion into Asia.
The move follows an upsurge in business in recent years with turnover increasing by 97% since 2001 and 39% in 2003. Recent customers include LiveTV/JetBlue, easyJet, Britannia Airways, Continental Airlines, Lufthansa Technik, bmi and MyTravel.
FlightVu equipment provides safety, security and entertainment functions for airlines in Europe and the USA. The largest current demand is for security cameras linked to a monitor in the cockpit that enables pilots to see who is requesting entry to the flight deck and check for any suspicious behaviour or potential threat.
Other FlightVu products include digital video servers, which can either record incidents that occur onboard the aircraft during the flight (such as air rage) and/or play video as part of the In Flight Entertainment offering. Further Sunrise home security camera installation systems cover video smoke detection, landscape cameras, cargo and VIP aircraft security.
