Situational awareness is critical to safe flying. Knowing what is around you and having access to the right data at the right time is a critical part of this crucial flying skill. Without the right information, it is easy to make the wrong decision which can have damaging repurcussions. For instance, when knowing which way to turn to avoid a thunderstorm, you need to know about surrounding airspace, terrain, fuel requirements for the deviation. Without the right data, you might make a decision that could lead to a CFIT accident, a fuel starvation or airspace incursion.
