Farmer_Dave Posted April 30, 2008 Share Posted April 30, 2008 To All A reminder for May clubnight which will be in Blinis Bar at the Royal York Hotel, Sidmouth 8.00pm on Wednesday 7th May. Mark Turner (FSC airspace officer) will talk to us about the latest proposals from the CAA for Mode S transponders, bearing in mind that the deadline for response to the CAA is 31st May. For those of you who are new to the club and are not aware of this issue, the Civil Aviation Authority are trying to make it compulsory at a point in the future for us to carry some type of radar recognition equipment and the BHPA and other organisations are trying to fight this. This is an important issue which could affect all of us and we owe it to our sport to be as well informed and up to date as possible, so please try and make it to the meeting. This meeting is open to all, so please can any Wessex and South Devon members forward it to their lists for circulation. David Govier ps It doesn't matter if you aren't a member of the Devon & Somerset Condors. If you are flying , or thinking of flying , the meeting will be very interesting to you. Mark Turner flys Boeing airliners and knows his stuff. If you dont want to be carrying another 2 kilos of unwanted radiowave emitting equipment you will need to know how to stand with everyone else and fight. If we dont we will have to carry it.
