Runway Awareness and Advisory System - RAAS

Honeywell’s runway awareness and advisory system (RAAS) is a valuable safety solution that improves pilot situational awareness, minimizing the risk of runway incursions and reducing operational costs.

Runway incursions are a leading cause of aviation accidents and fatalities, accounting for approximately $1 billion annually in damages. Loss of situational awareness is a causal factor in a majority of these runway incursions. To mitigate incursions, Honeywell developed the Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS), a heads-up advisory system with aural alerts to increase the pilot’s situational awareness during ground and air operations relative to the runway.

RAAS is available on the Primus Apex and Primus Epic platforms. It's an easy and fast software update to your Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems (EGPWS) MK V, MK V-A, MK VII or Epic EGPWS Module (EGPWM).

Operators should contact Honeywell sales at the link below or an authorized Honeywell dealer to determine if a supplemental type certificate (STC) or service bulletin exists for a simple software upgrade.
