A new app designed to enhance flight safety has been introduced by Florida-based Levil Technology, a designer of aviation instrumentation, among other things. The app is called GAARD. Levil describes it as a prototype application designed to enhance aviation safety. Pilots can use this application to participate in the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) GA Demonstration Project taking place in Phoenix, AZ.
The app allows users to graph your aircraft performance during flight including roll, pitch, and heading. It will also show an aircraft’s flight track on a map. Established in March, the FAA’s year-long Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) program for the general aviation (GA) community is collecting data from GA pilots within 40 nautical miles of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on a voluntary basis.
The FAA and industry are working together through the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) to use data to identify risk, pinpoint trends through root cause analysis, and develop safety strategies. The demonstration project is the next step towards expanding ASIAS, already successfully used in commercial aviation, to the GA community to help identify safety risks and emerging threats. The project will collect public sector and proprietary data which will be protected. The data will not be accessed or used for FAA enforcement. The project will also explore potential new voluntary information sources such as digital flight data, pilot safety reports, manufacturer reports, and information voluntarily provided from personal electronic devices.
