General Aviation Airborne Recording Device (GAARD™) is a prototype application designed to enhance aviation safety. Pilots can use this application to participate in the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) program and the National General Aviation Flight Information Database (NGAFID).

GAARD is part of an expansion of the commercial ASIAS program designed to improve safety by incorporating new, voluntary GA data sources submitted by the community. GAARD will collect GPS position and, if properly equipped, attitude information, to contribute to the project.

More information about ASIAS can be found at:

• Participation in the GA Demonstration Project will improve the safety of general aviation.
• Playback recorded data in GAARD, NGAFID or Google Earth
• Pilots who participate in safety programs are less likely to be involved in an accident (GAO 13-36, pg. 13)

Supported AHRS Devices:
• iLevil Sport
• iLevil SW
• iLevil AW
• SkyRadar-DX
• Clarity SV

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

ForeFlight Sentry

I ha problems with the app dominating the Sentry, leaving the FF display without data. It is too bad FF track-logs cannot be uploaded to your NGAFID web account.

Each version is a little better

I have been playing with this since I heard of it. Great concept. One of the latest versions fixed the problem of locking the GPS so that other apps could not get GPS data. It runs in the background now.

I now have in my take off and shutdown checklists

Next big thing to fix is to receive AHRS data from my Garmin GTX345.

Great Concept

Great idea! The tie-in to the web tools is very helpful. Hope the idea catches on!
