Timed flight data is automatically compiled and at the end of each flight uploads via the GSM mobile network to the CloudBaseGA central server. Flight data is retained and re-sent if required until confirmation is received from the server that it has been received and processed.
Flight data is analysed and flight records detailing the Aircraft Registration, Flight ID, Date, Brakes-Off time, Take-off Time, Landing Time, Brakes-On time and Location at end of flight are recorded on the CloudBaseGA server.
