It is a device used to record specific aircraft performance parameters. Popularly referred to as a "black box," the data recorded by the FDR is used for accident investigation, as well as for analyzing air safety issues, material degradation and engine performance

Nowadays, there are two types of black box carried on aircraft, which may be combined into a single device: a flight data recorder [FDR], which logs information such as speed and altitude, and a cockpit voice recorder [CVR], which logs all voice communication in the cockpit. These black boxes also carry beacons to help find the aircraft in a rescue situation...!
