  • China recently caused some controversy by announcing an Aircraft Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East China Sea. There is also an ADIZ surrounding most of North America. What exactly is an ...

  • Tonight's fireworks got me wondering: With all of the firework displays happening at the same time, how do they keep aircraft away from them? Is there any risk of collision or blinding the pilots? ...

  • On the Tulsa, Oklahoma VFR sectional the top of the outer Class C ring says "OBJECTIONABLE". Does this indicate some information on the chart is in dispute? I don't see anything in the VFR chart legen...

  • If an incident occurs on board an aircraft in flight which could be considered as criminal in one country, what decides which country the incident falls under? For example, if a man was found to be in...

  • Air Transport World is reporting that the European Commission has initiated legal proceedings against Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg; for not implementing FABs by the deadline. A quote says: FABs are a cornerstone of the SES initiative and are intended to reduce the capacity, cost and environmental constraints that continue to dog Europe's fragmented air traffic management (ATM) system by establishing common airspace blocks arranged around traffic flows rather than state boundaries. What exactly are SES and FABs, in laymans terms?

  • There are some good sights to see inside of class Bravo airspace. What is the best way to plan and communicate to ATC that my intention is to fly into the airspace to see some specific landmarks?

  • Hypothetical: Let's say (for whatever reason) a pilot became distracted or disorientated, and found themselves in class B airspace. What steps should they take immediately and after landing to be safe and avoid any backlash from authorities?

  • to actually be working or engaged. Assuming that my MEL allows me to defer the autopilot and still fly, can I fly in RVSM airspace? Some people however say that if you are in RVSM airspace

  • Is it required when under VFR to contact an airfield's approach when approaching to land at a class D? KDLH is my example airfield. They possess independent radar approach and departure (same freque...

  • We are working on a UAV and will soon get to the testing phase. We intend to fly at a maximum altitude of 300-400 meters. I wanted to know as to what restrictions apply to the airspace in India (specifically Delhi) with respect to flying UAVs as well as the altitudes from which they apply? We will also be testing autonomous capabilities. Do we need to get any licenses for this?

  • This is related to my earlier question. Delhi has a lot of areas with restricted airspace and no fly zones. Assuming we are able to get the necessary licenses and permissions to fly, what should we do if we accidentally enter no fly zones while in controlled flight? The altitude will be less than 400 meters. Once (and if) we are clear of the no fly zone, where should we report the incident? This is a hypothetical question. I do not intend to break any laws knowingly.

  • Is it possible for the pilot to be held responsible for violating a Temporary Flight Restriction if the controller makes a mistake while you are operating under an Instrument flight plan (ie: does not...

  • If I recall, in America there were several "Prohibited Access" airspaces and others required permission, via radio, to enter in a typical aircraft. But, what if I'm gliding over a restricted airspace? (Say, over the Capitol?). Would I be shot down (or fined, sued, etc.)?

  • Apparently, even if you have declared an urgent situation or an emergency, you cannot enter restricted or prohibited airspace, and ATC may not be able to clear you into the area. So, my question: If you had a serious condition onboard an aircraft (say severe icing) and high terrain (I know, you probably haven't planned) in all directions except for restricted or prohibited airspace, what should you do to try and make sure that people are aware of your situation and can try and minimise the risk of doing so?

  • I know some uncontrolled airports can have more operations per day than many controlled airports. That got me wondering what the process is for the change to a towered, controlled airport. I know a co...

  • I was looking at http://www.gelib.com/aeronautical-charts-united-states.htm, where you can download shape files for Google Earth that show US airspaces. I'm writing some software that has a similar n...

  • I don't know if this also applies to the U.S. or just to Europe, but in Europe the civilian airspace is frequently used by military jets. On numerous occasions I've seen F-16's and other fighter jets using the same airspace I was flying in (both controlled and uncontrolled) According to the regulations, we should "see and avoid" other traffic but does that rule apply when encountering these fast military jets? Let's face it: there's no way you can see and avoid a fighter jet approaching at +400kts. Are there specific regulations covering this? Who's at fault when a midair collision occurs

  • When I'm reading about aviation, it's very common to see references to Class B or Class C airspace and airports. What are the different classes and what are the differences between them?

  • Are airspace violations (e.g. entry to class B without clearance) based on primary radar and/or Mode C transponder, or something else? I read that Mode C altitude is based on pressure altitude, i.e., set to 29.92" ... but presumably that's adjusted at the ATC facility based on the current pressure before being used for altitude enforcement. This begs the question, what would stop one (hypothetically), just winding back the altimeter pressure reading to appear to be at a lower altitude? So to summarize: How are airspace violations detected: What data input is used? If Mode C reading

  • I've read that ICAO defines Class F airspace but the FAA has chosen not to use the airspace class in the US. What is the ICAO definition of Class F airspace and how does it differ from other airspace classes? What countries use Class F airspace? Why does the FAA only use A-E and G?
