    part of that The Government recently approved proposals that make Mode S the required means of compliance for transponder carriage in all the mandatory circumstances with effect from 31 March 2008 So to be clear the present consultation is not about whether or not you think Mode S transponders have a future in the UK that has already been decided This consultation is about the phased expansion of Mode S transponder usage It should be noted that unlike the 2006 consultation this consultation on the second phase of Mode S expansion does not propose that all aircraft should carry Mode S transponders in all UK airspace The Detail The CAA s proposals are broken down into four options ALL of which they deem desirable to implement but any final recommendation to Government will depend on information and feedback from stakeholders WHICH INCLUDES THE BHPA MEMBERSHIP Each option is considered in specific documentation on the CAA website with a cost benefit précis and we suggest you read them for more detail Initial examination of the documents may suggest foot launch flyers are exempt from the proposals This is true but we should pay attention to any knock on effects and to the fact that inevitably sooner or later a suitable lightweight transponder will exist for hg pg carriage Option 1 Require all aircraft other than gliders in controlled airspace to operate SSR Mode S transponders Pros to BHPA Increased levels of safety for aircraft within controlled airspace i e those BHPA members that use airliners to get to their flying abroad Cons to BHPA Once a Mode S infrastructure exists for the majority the CAA s long term plan for wholesale airspace reclassification will then be possible Our existing operations in controlled airspace are based on Letters of Agreement LOAs as more traffic becomes known it is quite possible that the toleration of our unknown activities will evaporate Non Mode S equipped powered traffic will have to find routes around controlled airspace increasing traffic in the airspace where we can fly Option 2 Implement a formal process to support applications for Transponder Mandatory Zones TMZs outside of controlled airspace The CAA already have the power to set up TMZ s and think it likely that more of these zones will be needed in the future This proposal is about establishing a clear documented process for dealing with future applications for a new TMZ as against the current vague undocumented process Pros to BHPA This perhaps gives us an opportunity to ensure that there is always a proper consultative process and that the BHPA has a voice within it Cons to BHPA There is the worry that once the CAA has a nice new process for establishing TMZ s they will set to with gusto But they can do this using their existing powers There is no certainty that the formal process we are invited to vote for will include any consultation and or criteria we agree with The BHPA is already
