PilotAware is now offering bundles on antenna kits and PilotAware Rosetta units which are suitable for the 2020 CAA Electronic Conspicuity grant.
These are monopole designs which require a ground plane for an optimum range. If these antennas are installed on a metal skinned airframe, then the metal skin will become the perfect ground plane. If these antennas are going to be installed in a fabric or composite skinned airframe, then a ground plane will be required. It's recommended that a sheet of metal 200x200mm is used. External Antennas will give the best perfomance on all types of aircraft as this provides minimum obscuration of transmitted and received signals.
We made a short YouTube video explaing why.

1 year free PilotAware license key. (additional years cost £12.00+vat)
PilotAware Rosetta bundles come complete with a first year license which needs to be updated annually on the anniversary of registration. For the last 4 years this has remained static at a very modest £12 plus VAT. Many supporters have asked if we can provide an extension to this so that they don’t forget to re-licence and also to make the process easier for all.
To meet this request, sales of PiotAware Rosetta will come with the option of increasing the licence period to 5 years, from the date of registration, for £57.60 inc VAT.
This will also give the user protection against any licence price increase during the 5 year period.
To take advantage of this please choose 'Add to cart' on the pop up that appears immediately after adding Rosetta + Installation Kit (External Antennas) to cart.
