Obtain more accurate position using the Bad Elf, which relies purely on satellite data, not assisted by cellular towers and wifi nodes that can skew location.
Bad Elf Bluetooth GPS receivers have been successfully tested, approved, and deployed by Part 121 and Part 135 operators under FAA AC120-76C, which allows own-ship aircraft moving map (AMM) display during taxi operations.
At this time, the FAA does not allow own-ship AMM display on portable devices while en route. However, range rings and map-centering features can be used in flight, which are based on the GPS position data provided by Bad Elf GPS receivers.
Bad Elf works closely with Part 121 and Part 135 operators, pilots, EFB administrators, app vendors, and the FAA to deliver reliable GPS products that increase safety by improving situational awareness in the cockpit. Bad Elf will eagerly support operators working on their AC120-76C approval with the FAA by providing documentation, job aids, references, consultation, and evaluation units for your data collection phase.
Part 91 pilots and operators can use Bad Elf GPS receivers during all phases of flight.
For military pilots, the USAF Approved Carry-on Equipment List includes Bad Elf GPS receivers after successfully passing EMI certification (as of October 6, 2014) for portable electronics. Pilots and ground personnel from every branch of the United States military have deployed with Bad Elf receivers.
