New easy process to enable electronic identification of light aircraft announced

Yesterday we released proposals for how GA aircraft and airspace users in uncontrolled UK airspace can use low cost and low power electronic devices (known as electronic conspicuity) to be more visible to each other.

The aim is to make it significantly easier and cheaper for pilots to be able to electronically show other aircraft their position by turning the ‘see and avoid’ concept into ‘see, BE SEEN and avoid.’
