How effective is the SafeSky app?
Following our flights with SafeSky, we have come to the following conclusion: The app will always be active. It provides a background warning, works with several of the navigation apps we use, and completes the cockpit's other collision notifications. The idea is interesting, especially when used with portable collision warning systems. These systems receive direct signals from ADS-B and maybe FLARM, while SafeSky supplements Mode S transponders without ADS-B functionality, which nonetheless account for a significant portion of traffic. We should eventually be able to see what is left.
