What is FLARM?

FLARM is the traffic awareness and collision avoidance technology for General Aviation, light aircraft, and UAVs. With FLARM installed, you are alerted of both traffic and imminent collisions with other aircraft, so you can take action before it is too late.

Over 40,000 manned aircraft and many UAVs are already equipped with FLARM and the number is rapidly increasing. FLARM systems are available from several manufacturers for powered airplanes, helicopters, gliders, and UAVs.



FLARM can be extended with additional features, such as Obstacle databases, IGC approval, and much more.

All features can be purchased in our webshop and then easily downloaded as a license file.

The license file is then put in the FLARM device via USB stick or microSD card and activated immediately.GO TO SHOP

Firmware Update

The current firmware version is 7.01, released July 23, 2020, available here. Every FLARM device has to be updated with the latest firmware version at least once per year, or it will stop operating.

When updating the firmware, make sure to update the obstacle database at the same time to ensure uninterrupted functionality.Firmware update
