Cockpit Image Recorders: A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

May 1, 2005
Document: “Cockpit Image Recorders: A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words”

By David Rapoport and Paul Richter

In this article, published in Issues in Aviation Law and Policy in 2005, Mr. Rapoport and Mr. Richter detail the utility and safety benefits of requiring video recorders in the cockpit. Common sense dictates that having cameras in the airplane’s cockpit would undoubtedly be effective in ensuring that pilots comply with safety regulations at all times. However, pilots’ unions and associations have voiced strong opposition against implementing the practice, citing cost, a purported lack of utility, and privacy concerns. The article explores the need for such supervision in the cockpit and discusses the safety benefits that would result.
