General aviation pilots can now fly safer and get help faster with their inReach satellite communicators linked to Lockheed Martin Flight Services.

Once an inReach device is enrolled in the free program, pilots filing flight plans with Lockheed Martin Flight Services can receive ACAS alerts of any new or modified adverse conditions, such as severe weather or airport closures, which may arise after the pilot has received an initial briefing and filed the flight plan.
