——- CVR Readout Purpose & Outsourcing Benefits ——-

The purpose of a CVR audio intelligibility check is to verify the appropriate serviceability of a critical safety equipment onboard your aircraft. The nature of a CVR audio readout is to evaluate the quality of audio inputs generated by the cockpit acoustic environment, as well as crew communications. However, the CVR audio readout process is not to report on the nature of the communications recorded by the CVR unit. As such, Orient Star Pacific guarantees the confidentiality of onboard communications and limits its reporting to the CVR unit health check.

Orient Star Pacific neutrality is appreciated by its customers and their various internal stakeholders (safety department, engineering department, flight operations department), but also by national Civil Aviation Authorities around the world who can count on our impartiality.

Additionally, Orient Star Pacific high competitiveness allows airlines to save on maintenance costs related to investing and maintaining internal CVR audio readout technical capability (decompression software, analysis software) and expertise, which are actually seldom used. At Orient Star Pacific, we help you maximize your safety, regulation compliance and maintenance performance while minimizing your costs.
