Dear Registered Aircraft, please note following information below:
As from 1st December 2015, new rules are applicable in Europe regarding ACAS. All aeroplanes with a maximum certified take off mass in excess of 5700 kgs or authorised to carry more than 19 passengers need to be equipped with ACAS II v.7.1 in order to operate into EU airspace.
This is the last milestone of the EU Commission Regulation No 1332/2011 concerning the ACAS version 7.1 requirements for flights in the EU airspace. The European mandate already applied, as from 1 March 2012, to all new aircraft.
