Who we are
The idea for Spidertracks took root in 2005, when a high-profile New Zealander crashed his helicopter and couldn’t be found for two full weeks. Why, thought a group of creative brains interested in aviation, wasn’t there a better and more affordable way to locate downed aircraft?
Not long after, the first Spider made its way into the world. It became clear that we’d tapped into something the market needed — and since that day in early 2007, Spidertracks has grown into a globally recognised brand synonymous with quality, value, and a fierce dedication to our customers. We have customers in over 100 countries and established a local presence in the United States, Canada, Asia Pacific, and Africa all while continuing to make our products right here in New Zealand and saving lives in the process.
Our mission has evolved from its original state — to increase the safety and operational efficiency of aviation businesses and their people — to represent the important position we’ve assumed in the industry as a pioneer of innovation and affordable safety solutions.
We’re Spidertracks: making the aviation community a safer place to live and operate in.
