Radar Question for RW Pilots

Recommended Posts

None of the simulations with which I am familiar have radar built in, except for TCAS. Do real world airliners, such as the 737, 747, 767, 777, have onboard radar that would enable their crews to see aircraft within, say, 50 miles that are not a TCAS threat?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

No, none of the civilian aircraft have radars capable of detecting other aircraft. 

 

TCAS is not a radar.

Actually, the weather radars I have used are able to paint other aircraft at close range. Though they are not designed for it nor meant to be used that way, a big metallic object a few miles away will show up nonetheless.
