Obstacle Database License UK & Ireland 2022
The obstacle database license makes it possible for the FLARM system to also 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 UK and Ireland includes over 70,000 obstacle elements and was compiled around December 2021. It spans over a latitude from around 50° to 61° North and a longitude of around 10° West to 3° East.
Safety note: Only one database can be stored in the device, and only one obstacle file must be present on the SD-card/USB-stick inserted in a FLARM device. Save your flight logs prior to uploading a new obstacle database.
Ensure that the firmware is updated to the latest version before updating the obstacle database.
Each database is licensed and operational until a specified date (for this database: January 31, 2023) after which an expiration warning on startup will appear.
