10,000th POWERFLARM delivered to UK customer
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.
