Latest FAA AC makes it easy for Airports to use the AFM2 with ABS-equipped vehicles

Wednesday 10th August 2016

The latest FAA Advisory Circular (number 150/5200-30D) no longer requires airports to disable the ABS system on vehicles which are used to conduct runway friction tests with portable electronic decelerometers like the Bowmonk AFM2.

With no requirement to disable the test vehicle’s ABS, it is now even easier for airports to use the AFM2, and means that they no longer face the risk of vehicle warranty disputes caused by deactivation of the ABS system. 

The full FAA circular can be read here.
