Seeing NORSEE Benefits

Have you ever seen the “NORSEE” identifier on an aviation product for sale at a fly-in or local aviation shop? It means that the product is Non-Required Safety Enhancing Equipment. NORSEE provides a streamlined approval process for certain non-essential equipment that can enhance the safety of GA fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft, like attitude indicators, or traffic and terrain advisory systems. To learn more about this program and to see how it is performing after being launched in 2016, check out the article, “Seeing NORSEE Benefits” at in the May/June issue of FAA Safety Briefing. Our new July/August issue will be available online next week!
