Review your decision to disconnect the existing cockpit voice recorder in Boeing 737 aircraft with a view to bringing them back into service as soon as practicable.
Reply Text
Six of our B737 aircraft are fitted with Cockpit Voice Recorders. Five of those have had their recorders reactivated; the sixth leaves the airline's service in a few weeks.

Seven aircraft have no provision for CVRs.

The National Airline has no plans to retrofit these aircraft pending the introduction of Part 121 in the new CAA rules regime.
