Radio/Radar Altimeters (RADALTs) have become a critical part of an aviator’s terrain awareness since their creation in 1924. Whether providing altitude information directly to the flight deck or feeding ground proximity and terrain awareness systems, a properly working RADALT has become a key aspect of safe flight. Between outdated “pop-and-swap” troubleshooting procedures and an ever-shrinking RF operational spectrum, how can operators ensure accurate and consistent RADALT performance?
