All modern commercial airliners have a CVR (Cockpit Voice Recorder) on-board to record what the pilots are saying during the duration for a flight. I feel that the location of the microphones is important because they should be in a place that can easily pick up the cockpit conversations but should also be discreet enough to avoid accidental damage or even intentional sabotage by hijackers/suicidal pilots.
So where are the recording devices or microphones located in the cockpit for this?
- Is there more than one microphone in the cockpit to provide stereo sound?
- If so, do investigators listen to the recording from each microphone?
- Are there any pictures of these microphones in the cockpit?
