I've not found anything anywhere that explains each parameter. I produced a detailed CSV file, opened it in Excel and expanded each column to its max (which, by default, produces a column wide enough to display everything in that column, including the header).

Many of the headers contain obvious information, i.e., you can tell from the header what the data is that's being captured. There were some that were not so obvious. Many, many of the columns are "flags." They serve as indicators of something being enabled/disabled, turned on/off, etc. or "faults" that might have occurred during that particular flight. Again, the headers for some of the "flags/faults" are somewhat intuitive, but not all of them.

I recommend expanding each column sufficiently, then slowly wade through each individual column - it might be a valuable learning process.

Keep in mind as well - each row represents a snapshot taken every so many milliseconds - it takes a lot of rows just to "capture" a single minute worth of data. A flight of only a few minutes will contain several thousand rows of data.

I'm referring specifically to the FLYxxx.DAT files.
