Airport Runway Incursion Prevention Offered By Approach Systems

Approach Systems Corporation is disclosing details of 'Approach EasyTaxi,' a free download of geo synchronized location of aircraft on all NACO Airport Diagrams.

Approach is making this application free (for a limited time) in the spirit assisting the FAAs current effort to prevent runway incursions. With Approach EasyTaxi, the company hopes that will be absolutely no reason to line up on the wrong runway or inadvertently cross a runway while taxiing.

Approach EasyTaxi is free and runs on any Windows based platform. Additionally, beginning with the May 2009 release, EasyTaxi free moving map software we will include airport diagrams for all airports that have a NACO airport diagrams (692 airports). Approach EasyTaxi allows the real time display of aircraft position on each NACO airport diagram. Approach EASYTAXI works with all Microsoft based platforms.

Approach EasyTaxi uses detailed NACO database to dynamically render maps of all US airport diagrams and through the use of GPS technology show pilots their position on the airport surface. Now, when landing at an unfamiliar airport and being given confusing ground instructions you no longer have to ask for a "progressive." You'll know exactly where you are on the airport surface, greatly reducing the possibility of crossing a runway.

Approach EasyTaxi is plug & play; the user does not need to "calibrate" any diagram. Calibration for all airport diagrams has already been performed by Approach. Approach EASYTAXI can interface to all standard GPS devices and virtual GPS connections. The cost of Approach EASYTAXI is free, zero, nada, zilch! Approach provides a new updates for changes every 28 days.

Approach APIC provided modern glass cockpit technology on low cost Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms based on Microsoft XP, VISTA and Windows Mobile based technologies.
