Flight Data Monitoring

Accurately Track Your Aircraft Data

Aircraft Data Just got Simpler

Monitoring aircraft operational data is essential to improving your flight department’s operational efficiency. Under the LinxUs® Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) Program, you can transfer your aircraft’s data over to one of three customer selected, third-party FDM vendors: CloudAhoy by ForeFlight, L3Harris, or Safran. These vendors will assist in tracking operational data and identifying operational risk factors that can assist with scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. As an added benefit to the enhanced piece of mind you will receive with the LinxUs® FDM Program, you may see lower aircraft insurance rates.

Once you alert Textron Aviation to your interest in the program via our LinxUs® website, and officially register with CloudAhoy by ForeFlight, L3Harris or Safran, then Textron Aviation will facilitate the transfer of LinxUs® FDM collected data to your chosen provider through AReS II onboard hardware. This hardware is included on Textron Aviation production aircraft and allows for immediate data transfer after a Wi-fi connection is established on touch down (if your aircraft is equipped with AReS II, then no additional hardware is required). If you are unsure if you meet the hardware requirement, then please connect with your Textron Aviation Service sales representative.

The LinxUs® FDM Program is currently available for Cessna® SkyCourier®, Citation Longitude®, Citation Latitude®, Citation® X+™, Citation® Sovereign+™, Citation CJ4®, Citation® CJ3®, Citation® CJ3+™ and Citation M2® aircraft and our teams at Textron Aviation are working to quickly expand our offering to additional aircraft. To bring LinxUs® FDM to your Citation® CJ1®, Citation® CJ1+®, Citation® CJ2®, Citation® CJ2+®, Citation® CJ3®, Citation® CJ3+™, Citation CJ4® or your King Air® 90, 200 or 300 series aircraft upgrade with LinxUS® Legacy.
