GADSS and why we need it

Over the past decade flight safety has attracted continued media attention, with the losses of both Air France flight 447 and MH370, which, despite a lengthy search has never been found.

Many members of the general public wanted to know why we were unable to locate such a huge object; How could an aeroplane simply vanish? Why did it seem so easy for a plane to just crash without trace? Since March 2014, and the unsuccessful search for MH370, a new set of recommendations has been drawn up in order to improve flight safety and tracking capability. GADSS (Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System) suggests that we should be able to track aircraft from normal flight paths, through to abnormal scenarios, then to distress tracking and ultimately, in the worst cases, should facilitate discovery and recovery of casualties and flight data recorders.

Flight data recorders, or black boxes as they are colloquially known, have long been a requirement on both commercial and military aircraft, since 1967 in fact. They enable vital data recovery should an accident occur, and this can be used to establish a cause as well as being used to prevent similar accidents occurring in future.
