  2. BMAA News item: BMAA and LAA TO TAKE OVER VERIFICATION OF ADS-B OUTPUTS FOLLOWING NATS TRIALS

    Hi Andy,

    The Funke TM250 has its own small display for showing ADSB traffic relative to myself (along with warnings for transponder mode S and C, and FLARM traffic). I set the range usually to 8...
  3. BMAA News item: BMAA and LAA TO TAKE OVER VERIFICATION OF ADS-B OUTPUTS FOLLOWING NATS TRIALS

    Your totally correct Russ, my error in skim reading the article.

    I stand by my last sentence though :smilewinkgrin:
  4. BMAA News item: BMAA and LAA TO TAKE OVER VERIFICATION OF ADS-B OUTPUTS FOLLOWING NATS TRIALS

    So, the BMAA and LAA will CONTINUE to approve.....

    Just as they did in 2014 for me when I coupled a Mode S (extended) transponder to the Funke TM250 in my flex, giving ADSB in and out.

    Praise...

    The Flying Show tickets

    It was possible to obtain advance tickets for UNDER £6 including booking fee, if you were a Flyer subscriber.
    This also applied to every ticket purchased (not just the subscription member).

    Radar accuracy

    One reason to explain a touchy controller, even if you (we/I) are on the correct side of the line:

    The controller is likely to have the predictable track feature selected.
    Here the aircraft's...
  8. 800 infringements a year and counting

    Hi Pete,

    Might be worth pre-empting the ATC command (thereby showing you are fully aware of your situation).

    At the end of your initial call to announce your presence, tag on "I will be...

    Strobe advice to ADS(B)

    It might sound a long flight Colin, but with a tailwind it wasn't that bad. Although excited to see the tell tale signs of towering clouds covering the islands, I didn't have any urge or need...

    Strobe advice to ADS(B)

    Rather than steal the strobe advice topic with my own comments on ADS(B) fitments, I've started this post.

    I recently picked up a Funkwerks (Now Filser) transponder at SunNFun in the states, for...
  11. Obtaining permission for a flight abroad.

    LOL...

    In that case, I made the initial error in contacting Vagar ATC many months ago with some other questions.

    They pointed out permission was needed, so I couldn't quite claim ignorance.
  12. Obtaining permission for a flight abroad.

    Small update

    Just got a response from DULFU.
    They say they do not charge anything for the permit to fly in Denmark.

    I suspect the fee I am being charged is for an aircraft being imported, and...
  13. Obtaining permission for a flight abroad.

    I have questioned the cost both to the DTA (Danish Transport Authority) and DULFU last week, but no reply from either yet.

  14. Obtaining permission for a flight abroad.

    Many thanks for the reply Lukas.
    As I mentioned, I did follow the official blurb route initially, but the DULFU do not handle flights to the Faeroe Islands.

    I have received permission to fly, and...
  15. Obtaining permission for a flight abroad.

    Hi all,

    Can anyone assist. What is actually being sought when seeking PPR for a flight abroad. Before everyone shouts permission, let me explain.

    I intend flying from Scotland to the Faeroe...
  16. EASA's CRD to NPA 2012-14 - Minimum height

    This was exactly my point Paul. EASA seem to be allowing a path for certain situations (aircraft classes maybe?) to fall outwith the 500ft minimum height agl/asl.
    My hope wasnt to be allowed closer...
  17. EASA's CRD to NPA 2012-14 - Minimum height

    Hi Geoff,

    Yep, you are totally correct. If either types of aircraft do come into contact with anyone on the ground, then its gonna hurt.
    However, I was approaching the concern of flying lower...
  18. EASA's CRD to NPA 2012-14 - Minimum height

    How did it all go?

    Hi

    Having met the winner of the rally at Strathaven today, 1 month after the event, I have no idea the results and where I placed in relation to others....

    Any news ?
  20. Standardised European Rules of the Air (SERA) Implementation Consultation opens.

    One change stands out to me and is something I am against.

    Hi Nick or Frank,

    If either of you wouldn't mind, could a copy of the mod from the BMAA be forwarded to myself too.

    Many thanks
