Our Fokker Triplane is a replica aircraft, and we have attempted to authentically reproduce the sight, sound and handling characteristics of the WW1 original, however, one of the items in the aircraft’s cockpit offers the latest in 21st Century technology.

G-FOKK is  being used to demonstrate the latest Airbox Aware and Clarity, self contained GPS navigation units developed by Airbox Aerospace Limited in conjunction with NATS (National Air Traffic Services).

They combine satellite navigation with the Aware airspace warning device to aid navigation and help reduce the risk of airspace infringements, while not compromising the authentic appearance of the vintage cockpits.
