Guest Posted March 22, 2008 Share Posted March 22, 2008 All, Over the last few years there have been whispers that PPG / PG pilots will sson be made to carry Transponders. This comes to us in the form of a "Consultation - Proposal to Amend The ANO 2005 - Improving Technical Interoperability of all Aircraft in UK Airspace" Is this a good idea? Is it a bad one? What effect will this have on you and I? Anyone know the ins and outs? My personal feeling is that I think it can do no harm for people to know where you are in the sky, we have a few fast planes, helli's, and even microlilght learner pilots to keep an eye out for here at Lambourn. The CAA say... (The objective of this proposal is to make a significant contribution towards ensuring that the number of mid-air collisions and serious risk-bearing ‘near-miss’ incidents in UK airspace does not increase and, preferably, decreases as the level of air traffic grows. This will be achieved by requiring the fitment and operation of suitable avionics to all aircraft in order to substantially improve their technical interoperability with each other throughout all classes of UK airspace.) I am happy to carry one 'I think', but what are the other implications of this IF it happens??... SW Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
