Obstacle Database License European Alps for PG/HG
This obstacle database license is only for paragliders and hang gliders.
The obstacle database license makes it possible for the FLARM system to warn about imminent obstacle collisions with fixed objects such as cable railways, powerlines, or antenna masts stored in the database.
This specific database covering the European Alps region includes over 80,000 obstacle elements in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and Slovenia. It spans over a latitude from 43° to 49° North and longitude from 5.5° to 16.75° East.
Safety note: This database covers one large area but – with some local exceptions – does not contain most antennas/towers and electrical wires.
Ensure that the firmware is updated to the latest version before updating the obstacle database.
Each database is licensed and operational for one year from the purchase date, after which an expiration warning on startup should appear. No obstacle collision warnings will be issued after this date.
The map below shows all obstacles which are available in the obstacle database.
