The AMA welcomes you to discover flight!

Automatic Collision Avoidance Technology (ACAT) is a program that was developed to improve and transition automatic collision avoidance technologies throughout the aviation industry. ACAT is designed to prevent a ground collision for fully functional aircraft by automatically taking control of the aricraft and flying it away from the ground.
