Has anyone sorted out their mode S transponders yet?

If so, What solution have you come up with? Any recommendations?

If not, what do you intend to do?

Explain what you mean by "sort out". I use Mode S and it works fine.

Is it you don't understand how it functions or its limitations?

Didn't understand what you are asking.

New Transponder Carriage Requirements
Following public consultation, the revised transponder carriage requirements will come into effect on 1 January 2010 with the publication of the Air Navigation Order 2009. The revised carriage requirements will be published in UK AIP GEN 1.5 from March 2010.


I was wondering what others have done, fitted new kit? not bothered? applied for an exemption?

Wonderful....

Clear as mud! At least in the US, we can understand what is required, and when Mode S is effective.

I suppose it depends on what you use your helicopter for and where you use it.

It looks like most non IFR ops are only affected in the Heathrow control Zone and near Stansted or high level in Scotland at the moment.

I guess sooner or later you wont be able to escape its mandatory use in most controlled airspace .
