All the general aviation aircraft operated in Russia must be equipped with state-of-the-art satellite tracking systems, which allow tracking the location of an aircraft in real-time mode and quickly finding it in case of a crash, the head of EMERCOM Vladimir Puchkov said, RIA Novosti reports.

He submitted this offer for consideration by the government commission for disaster prevention and emergency response. The corresponding draft legal act should be elaborated by June 30th 2015.

“I suggest making the operators fit the general aviation aircraft with this equipment and use it during flight. This decision of the government commission must be observed by all the operators,” the minister said. Puchkov justified the proposal with the growing potential of general aviation and complexity of search-and-rescue operations.
