Obstacle Database Alps 2024
The obstacle database makes it possible for the FLARM system to warn about imminent collisions with fixed objects such as cable railways, powerlines, or antenna masts stored in the database.
This database covering the European Alps region includes obstacles in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and Slovenia.
Note: Some power lines in flat areas are excluded from this dataset. Only one database can be stored in the device, and only one obstacle file must be present on the SD-card/USB-stick inserted in a FLARM device. Save your flight logs prior to uploading a new obstacle database.
Ensure that the firmware is updated to the latest version before updating the obstacle database.
Each database is licensed and operational until a specified date (for this database: March 31st, 2025) after which an expiration warning on startup will appear.
