"Grob Aircraft and Babcock presented the RAF with all the available options, and the Avidyne TAS600 Series really provided the best value," said Andre Hiebeler, Grob's CSO & co-CEO. "Working with Babcock who manages the RAF training fleet, we developed an STC for the TAS600 Series, which is now being retrofitted across the entire fleet of Grob G 115E training aircraft."

"The flight training environment poses a unique set of in-flight and ground-maneuvering conflict opportunities, and in reviewing accident studies, we have seen many instances where our TAS600 systems could play a significant role in enhancing safety," said Avidyne Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Herguth. "Partnering with training fleets is another way Avidyne can improve safety by increasing awareness and expanding the reach of our safety products."
"This agreement demonstrates the continued success of our FlySafe(tm) initiative, which was conceived to improve safety among flight schools and training fleets," said Rob Higby, vice president of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service. "Through FlySafe, we are proactively enhancing safety in the general aviation community with cost-effective safety solutions, including active-surveillance collision avoidance similar to that which the airlines have enjoyed for many years."
