    PilotAware License Price Increase.

    Unfortunately, after 6 years we have to increase the annual license fee for PilotAware.

    Since 2016, PilotAware has continuously innovated to develop low-cost electronic conspicuity that provides as much functionality and interoperability as possible.

    Development is costly and prices are increasing. Consequently, we now have to increase the subscription by a modest £1 a month to £24 a year plus vat to cover the increased costs. We believe that the increased subscription still remains incredibly good value and will allow us to continue to innovate at a fast pace and provide you with even more incredible features to make our skies even safer.

    During this time PilotAware has continually raised its value through the addition of exceptional features, well over and above the original specification.

    These include;

    •   †Flight recording of all aircraft detected around you
                     o  Useful for airprox assumptions and investigations.
    •   Mode-C/S detection as a bearing less target.
                     o Providing vertical separation of Mode C/S aircraft.
    •   †Voice alerts.
                     o Allowing warnings whilst still maintain a horizontal scan.
    •   PilotAware RADAR screen.
                     o Providing a clearer view of local aircraft.
    •   †Subsidised installation of PilotAware ATOM stations.
                     o Over 300 stations installed in UK - Europe
    •   †Flarm detection and rebroadcast.
                     o Adding over 3500 Flarm targets
    •   †Mode-S/3D.
                     o Adding over 10,000 potential Mode-S targets
    •   Development of the PilotAware software defined network (GRID).
                     o Integrating stations together to provide greater range and capacity.
    •   †METARS
                     o Complementary In flight METARS from all stations within 150KMs
    •   †Historic remote playback of all flights and aircraft detected.
                     o Data provided to Aircrew Visualisation Apps
    •   Automatic software update.
                     o Memory stick
                     o Router
                     o Mobile Phone, IOS and Android.
    •   †PilotAware VECTOR EC fidelity checker
                     o Designed to help all GA pilots get the most out of any EC device.
    •   †PilotAware SkyGRID enhanced relay network.
                     oRevolutionary method of detecting aircraft at low levels and providing missing traffic data.[/li][/list]

      †UK, or World, first implementation

    The increase will take effect on licences updated after February 1st 2022.
