‘Interoperable tech’ for conspicuity tops CAA poll

An overwhelming 95% of participating GA pilots in the CAA’s first Virtual Voyage General Aviation Summit voted in favour of an Electronic Conspicuity system to an interoperable recognised standard.

The poll didn’t mention which standard but ADS-B is the recognised technology currently in favour internationally.

Interestingly, the same poll showed 50% of the voters were in favour of an obligatory approach and 45% in favour of a voluntary approach but recognising that some areas (airspace) required it.

Just 5% of the poll voters were in favour of an EC system that was not to a recognised standard.
