uAvionix Corporation – a leading provider of communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) solutions for manned and unmanned aircraft is pleased to announce the recent ForeFlight Europe release supports SkyEcho 2 FLARM receive functionality. SkyEcho 2 is the newest version of the uAvionix popular CAP1391 SkyEcho Electronic Conspicuity (EC) ADS-B IN and OUT solution for United Kingdom(UK) VFR aircraft. SkyEcho 2 can be configured as an ADS-B OUT solution in the UK, or as an ADS-B IN and FLARM receiver only for use elsewhere in the European Union (EU).
ForeFlight 11.5 now offers pilots flying in Europe the option to display FLARM traffic data from the SkyEcho 2 when FLARM traffic appears on ForeFlight’s map just like ADS-B traffic, with basic information about each traffic target. In order to receive and display FLARM traffic, users must upgrade to ForeFlight 11.5, purchase a FLARM license from ForeFlight, and configure the SkyEcho 2 to enable FLARM reception.
Christian Ramsey, President uAvionix said “With ForeFlight integration of FLARM traffic, uAvionix and ForeFlight strengthen our partnership to maximize airspace awareness and help our customers fly more safely.”
uAvionix recently released a blog about universal equipage that demonstrates our commitment to our overall mission. To learn more, please see our Blog post ADS-B is Drone Repellent on the topic.
