Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS)
Over the years, air traffic has continued to increase. The development of modern air traffic control systems has made it possible to cope with this increase, whilst maintaining the necessary levels of flight safety. However, the risk of airborne collision remains. In parallel to the development of TCAS equipment, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) has developed, since the beginning of the eighties, standards for Airborne Collision Avoidance Systems (ACAS).
ACAS II is a system used for detecting and tracking aircraft in the vicinity of your own aircraft and is applicable to all aircraft with a MTOW over 5,700kg. By interrogating their transponders, it analyses the replies to determine range, bearing, and if reporting altitude, the relative altitude of the intruder.
This ACAS / TCAS Training program equips flight crew with a theoretical understanding of the Collision avoidance systems, and procedures applicable to any alerts provided by the system.
