It's not meant to replace a Black box, nor is it advocating replacing instruments with an off the shelf device.

All I was proposing was something to record some information rather than a total absence of any kind of recording at all. Preferably in a package that's cheap (compared with a Black box) and rugged enough to survive a crash.

Mainly because if the as the article already suggests that the crash investigators are already trying to obtane this information it just might make investigations easier if there was a more accessible and cheaper device capable of being accessed without requiring family intervention in a package that's more likely to survive than the device it's attached to.

Now if you have a better solution for light aircraft pilots I'm all ears.
