Anti-collision device made mandatory for aircraft

New Delhi: In a bid to ensure flight safety, government has made it mandatory for all aircraft operating in the country to be fitted with a new-generation air-borne collision avoidance system (ACAS-II).
This system not only identifies and informs the crew about any possibility of a mid-air collision, but also recommends the corrective manoeuvre and the new flight path to avoid a crash.
The rule, government sources told TOI, is applicable to any aircraft involved in commercial or general aviation, and includes even private aircraft with a seating capacity of under 10 people.
