Transport Canada recommends PowerFLARM

Following a mid-air collision between two Canadian light aircraft that were not FLARM equipped, Transport Canada recommends PowerFLARM in its latest Aviation Safety Letter.

Both Transport Canada (TC) and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) point out that “if the see-and-avoid principle is relied upon as the sole means of collision avoidance when operating in visual flight rules [VFR] conditions, then there is a continued risk of collision”. They recommend all aircraft to install a collision avoidance system and their article examines the functions and benefits of PowerFLARM.
