Description

RAAS is an additional safety module of Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems used in most modern airliners, developped by Honeywell company.

Its primary goal is to avoid runway intrusion and error.

It interacts with crew by aural messages and alerts.

This program will cover all your airports worldwide.

Version 3.8
>>> This addon is written in lua langage and therefore requires the registered version of FSUIPC7 <<<

It's useless to download this if you don't own a registered copy of FSUIPC7 for MSFS.

Please read carefully the included manual (English and French) as it takes a preparation using MakeRunways utility.
Big thanks to John and Pete Dowson for their great programs.
