RAAS is an additional safety module of Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems used in most modern airliners, developped by Honeywell company. Its primary goal is to avoid runway intrusion and error. It interacts with crew by aural messages and alerts. Please follow THIS LINK for a complete description.

- Version 3.7 -

>>> This addon is written in lua langage and therefore requires the registered version of FSUIPC7 <<<

It's useless to download this if you don't own a registered copy of FSUIPC for MSFS.

Please read carefully the included manual (English and French) as it takes a preparation using MakeRunways utility. Big thanks to John and Pete Dowson for their great programs.

SUPER....Meters work flawlessly.

Thank you sooo much for a Superb program and your quick update.

Perfect! Thank you very much!

Hello, and thank you for a wonderful and excellent add_on for msfs.

Is there a way to change runway available length from feet to meters.

Thank you.

Hi all, Can anyone advise how to turn the volume of the call outs down please? Thank you.

Hi, I don't have FSUIPC7 Registered yet, considering to buy it for this RAAS. Just a quick question, are the airport profiles auto generated?

For all of you having this issue:

** You hear the first "test OK" message and then nothing else **

Frequently Asked

Questions? Find your solution here.

I hear the "RAAS version 3.6 system test OK" but nothing else!

Make sure in FSUIPC7 that the "Lua Plugins" log option is DISABLED.

This option in in the Log menu.

Make sure also that you are not using hidBravoButtons or Alpha lua scripts at the same time (scripts delivered with FSUIPC7)

I hear the "RAAS version 3.6 system test FAILED" instead of "Ok"

Chech that the R4.csv file is copied inside FSUIPC7 main directory

I'm sure to be on the correct glide path for landing, but I hear "Too High! Too High!"

Verify in your R4.csv that altitudes (in feet) declared for your target airport and runways are correct

Altitude is the field #5 in a CSV line - example at KTAN, altitude in red:
KTAN,0040,41.875237,-71.022957,32,43.397,2154,0,118,-16.000,41.877861,-71.021133,0

Auto start is not working, why?

There is an error in the manual, sorry. The correct entry in FSUIPC.ini is

[AUTO]
1=Lua RAAS,1

See the comma added between the lua script name and the voice id parameter.
