FlareAssist+ Radar, w/ 100' Audio Calls & Gear Announcement

What is the difference between the standard FlareAssist Radar and the FlareAssist+ Radar?

FlareAssist+ Radar adds a new feature:  At the 60' mark, FlareAssist+ Radar will announce "Gear is up for Water" or "Gear is Down for Land".  A Micro Switch or Reed Switch will be provided.  It will be up to the installer 

What is FlareAssist+, and why should I use this?

Barometric altimeters are very useful at higher altitudes, but they are not accurate enough to be helpful when nearing water or terrain.  So pilots must learn to use visual clues to judge the aircraft’s altitude, to maintain terrain clearance; and to arrest the rate of descent for flare and landing.  Unfortunately, visual clues are not always available or can be dangerously misleading.

FlareAssist+ Radar uses rapid pulses of radar to calculate the distance to the surface, then annunciates the height in the pilot's headset.  This allows the pilot to devote all  his attention to flying the aircraft while knowing the actual height of the aircraft above the surface.  FlareAssist offers a simple, accurate and economical radar altimeter for the experimental seaplane or floatplane pilot.

Calls start at 100', with remaining calls at 80', 60', 40', 20', 15', 10', 8', 6', 4', 3', 2', and 1'.


The entire system is contained in a small, lightweight, and water resistant housing mounted outside the aircraft, typically on a wing strut or fuselage hard point.  A custom stainless steel bracket is provided for Searey aircraft.

Power to, and audio from FlareAssist are carried by a small cable to the interior of the aircraft.  The provided cable is 8 feet long, additional cable length is available during checkout.  Power can be provided by a DC port (cig lighter) or wired to a panel switch / circuit breaker.

Audio connects to the pilots headset by mini plug to MP3 jack or wired directly to the intercom.
