Obstacle database UK & Ireland 2019
Version 2019. Operates until 2020-01-31.
The obstacle database upgrades 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 UK and Ireland includes over 10.000 obstacle elements and was compiled around January 2019. It spans over a latitude from around 49° to 61° North and a longitude of around 10.4° West to 5° 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.
Each database is operational until a specified date (for this database: January 31, 2020) after which an expiration warning on startup will appear.
The map below shows all obstacles which are available in the obstacle database.
