CAA Mode S Phase 2 Transponder Consultation - May 2008
BHPA Draft Response
The BHPA Airspace Panel's draft response to the CAA Mode S Phase 2 Transponder Consultation is now available for download at: www.bhpa.co.uk/pdf/BHPA_Draft_Response_May_2008.pdf.
Please use this to aid you when responding to this CAA Consultation.
A summary document is also available on our web site, and provides the background to this important consultation. This runs through the pros and cons of each of the proposed options.
There are three methods of responding to the consultation document: online, by email, by post. The online response document only allows answers to specific questions. So any "off topic" response will have to be by post or email.
The deadline for responses is 5.00pm on 31 May 2008.
The e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.

The post address: Mr Andy Knill, Head of Surveillance & Spectrum Management, Directorate of Airspace Policy, CAA House K6 G6, 45-59 Kingsway, London, WC2B 6TE.
Please respond using your own words.
Multiple copies of exactly the same response tend to get counted as a single response - so it is best if members read the two documents and then respond to the CAA with their own points.
We do not expect all of our members to produce seventeen page response documents! Choose the point that you feel most strongly about and respond on that topic. Choose a couple if you have the time.
