BMAA supports the NATS Aware GPS Device

BMAA supports the NATS Aware GPS Device

The BMAA has shown support for the NATS safety initiative which has produced a low cost GPS based situational awareness device. The "Aware GPS" warns the pilot of approach to controlled and other airspace hazards.

The Aware device has been sponsored by NATS, the national air traffic service providers, to achieve a low cost tool to help prevent the increasing risks resulting from airspace infringements. The database in the Aware unit is updated at no cost each month to keep the unit fully functional as an avoidance tool. The database used in the aware is particularly accurate, depicting the airspace and hazards on the base chart more precisely than many other GPS systems.

Because the BMAA sees this particular device as an industry supported safety tool, it has shown its support for the NATS initiative by waiving the normal airworthiness modification fees that would be applicable if it was fitted directly to a microlight aircraft.

To take advantage of the no fee modification process, download the Standard Minor Modification Form, SMM109A, from the BMAA web site; available on the Mods page.
