10,000th POWERFLARM de­liv­ered to UK cus­tomer

Pilot - - NOTES -

FLARM Sys­tems has de­liv­ered its 10,000th POWERFLARM sys­tem. It was bought by Steve Hal­li­well from Manch­ester and in­stalled in his Hughes 500 he­li­copter. “Once, while fly­ing in a moun­tain­ous area, I came within 100ft of col­lid­ing with an­other air­craft head-on,” he says, hence the POWERFLARM in­stal­la­tion which was sup­plied by LX Avion­ics at Tur­we­ston.

Since their in­tro­duc­tion in 2004, nearly 40,000 FLARM sys­tems have been in­stalled in all types of air­craft and he­li­copters. The cur­rent POWERFLARM has tripled de­tec­tion range, an­tenna di­ver­sity, im­proved in­ter­fer­ence pro­tec­tion, Ads-b/transpon­der re­ceiver, and bet­ter and in­tu­itive ob­sta­cle warn­ings.
