Swiss Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) recommends FLARM

The attached reports summarize the current implementation level for these safety recommendations. The safety recommendations were made by AAIB, the feedback from the Swiss Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) resp. its supervising Department of Transport (UVEK)’s Civil Aviation safety Officer (CASO):

The report concludes as following: “The rapid distribution of [FLARM] only a few months after their introduction was not accomplished through regulatory measures, but rather on a voluntary basis and as a result of the wish on the part of the involved players to contribute towards the reduction of collision risk. The FOCA recommends that glider tow planes and helicopters that operate in lower airspace should also use collision warning systems.”
