Re: National Licensing and Medical Exemptions expire on Wednesday 8 April 2020

While I understand the medical thing, The notice seems to ban UK PPLs too regardless of the medical. I am surprised that my UK PPL with a class 2 medical will not be vald to fly a G registered certified aircraft in the UK. What has that got to do with EASA? I thought it was a UK PPL was a ICAO stand...

Share the Air, Sense all others, be seen by all others.

Good Morning As promised, I have opened a topic on the article "Taking stock of EC" in the Feb 20 LA mag. Unfortunately, it was the subject of a bit of "political correction" editing and during that one of its key points was overlooked. For completeness this is the paragraph that inadvertently got a...

Heads up, Article on Feb 20 mag on ANR headsets

Hi all As promised, I have opened a topic to discuss points you might like to make about the headset article (Heads up) in the February LA mag. I have already had direct feedback on my methodology and its accuracy but, what was not in the article was that both I and others conducted the test several...

Re: Instruments article feedback

The point I started with really relates to the potential consequences of the CAA’s latest plans for electronic conspicuity. If EC is mandated (as they say it will be), we will all be transmitting pressure altitude via either transponders or beacons. Under current regulations, any encoders (including...

Instruments article feedback

Hi all I have opened this topic for any feedback on instruments (electronic or steam) from my recent articles in the LA magazine. Of particular interest is calibration. With the potential advent of mandatory electronic conspicuity (CAP1777) and the new regulations on height clearance in controlled a...

Re: Out of the box

Ian replies: The subject matter covered by my “out of the box” article is very complex and to do it full justice would require the whole magazine, but editors being what they are didn’t allow me that much. I did a lot of thinking preparing this article (and the rest of the series) and hope that what...

Re: Electronic conspicuity article from the Feb edition of t

Hi Keith Thanks for your comments. My comment about P3i performance was gleaned from a discussion with 5 owners several of whom fly together. When asked, “did you see one another” they said no. Maybe they didn’t look hard enough but, its just an observation on my part. EC is about seeing and being s...

Electronic conspicuity article from the Feb edition of the L

Hi As promised in the article I have opened the topic on this forum. I have had several replies to my email and note that the RV chat site has a lot of dialogue. One of the key issues many dont seem to consider is that there are 2 ends to any conspicuity event. The beacon must transmit in all direct...
