This week at Aero Friedrichshafen , uAvionix and PocketFMS are excited to announce collaboration on inter-operable Electronic Conspicuity with skyEcho 2 and EasyVFR 4.
EasyVFR 4 , currently in beta and planned for commercial release Q2 2019, will integrate with skyEcho 2’s native capabilities to receive ADS-B, FLARM, and, for the first time, alert pilots if an aircraft is nearby with only a Mode C or S transponder. The Basic, Standard and Frequent Flyer licenses all will allow users to purchase a FLARM subscription for FLARM target depiction on the EasyVFR SmartMap. Three new areas of EC functionality are being introduced:
- FLARM Proximity Alerts require no FLARM license or extra cost to the user. These notifications alert the pilot of a nearby FLARM aircraft, but provide no bearing, altitude, or distance. FLARM proximity alerts are available in all levels of EasyVFR 4.
- Full FLARM Reception will depict the FLARM on the EasyVFR 4 SmartMap traffic display. FLARM reception is available in the Basic, Standard and Frequent Flyer subscription levels at an additional yearly subscription.
- Transponder Proximity Alerts provide a bearingless alert for multiple nearby aircraft equipped with a Mode C or S transponder. The intruding aircraft relative altitudes are displayed. Transponder proximity alerts are available at no additional cost in EasyVFR 4.
