The UKAB initiative and app aims to improve reporting levels

The UK Airprox Board (UKAB) has launched a free app that can be used to submit details of an airprox by those involved and aims to make airprox incident reporting easier. The app also provides access to UKAB’s extensive database of historic reports and safety material as well as an interactive chart of the UK displaying the locations of all reported airprox incidents.

Available on Android and iOS, the UKAB app will allow a pilot to report details of an incident by smartphone or tablet as soon as it is safe to do so and while the incident is still fresh in their memory. Previously, most general aviation pilots would submit a report via UKAB’s website often several hours, or even days, after the incident occurred.

UKAB Director, Steve Forward, said: “We want to make airprox reporting as easy as possible for pilots, and this app certainly achieves that. Not only can pilots now submit details quickly from their mobiles, they can also research where and why incidents happen.

“It is vital for UKAB to have access to the best quality incident reports we can get - to help us accurately assess the level of risk involved. The GA community in particular can help us to improve aviation safety by submitting timely and accurate airprox reports.”

The UKAB app can be installed free via the Google Play Store for android devices and the App Store for Apple phones and tablets. Search for ‘UKAB’ or ‘airprox’
