Collision avoidance has been enhanced around Oban Airport thanks to the installation of a FLARM receiver on site. Invented in 2004 FLARM was originally developed as a collision avoidance system for gliders and sailplanes and has further expanded into the General Aviation, light aircraft and UAV domains. There are now over 25,000 FLARM systems installed in aircraft worldwide. Iain Marshall
