  1. You don’t pay nav charges as a VFR in Class E airspace. Notwithstanding that, there are equipment requirements and that is where the cost is for us.
  2. Perhaps the fact that the 149 certificate doesn’t come into effect till 31 March and because they’ve told us the manuals will be published by then, that in fact they have been signed off. And if you actually understood the regulations you would know that CASR Part 149 has a Part 149 MOS. Part 149 is the regulations for how an ASAO administers it’s operations. Part 103 reg and mos are the operational regs that go hand in hand with Part 91. It works the same way as Part 121 does with 91.
  3. Correct, we don’t have WAAS but a WAAS capable device has a performance standard of better than 100m even when not using WAAS.
  4. I know that they are pretty accurate. I’ve certainly had no problems myself either however when it comes to what their certified performance accuracy is, it doesn’t meet the same as that required for 100m accuracy all the time, as in needed in this case. And if you look at the WAAS capable GPS levels of accuracy, this does meet this standard which is why these are used for IFR approaches.
  5. The GPS 100m requirement relates to the calibration of instruments whilst on doing maintenance. It’s not about using a GPS for navigation in Class G.....because we are visual pilots where the mark 1 eye ball is what we should be using.... And re the iPad performance, this wouldn’t meet the requirement as it doesn’t meet the 100m performance standard like a WAAS capable device. The only difference I can see from the current tech manual requirement for calibrating instruments is that a performance standard for the GPS is now stipulated.
  6. If you re-read their email you’ll see that they say there are no material changes or costs to members. And the list you’ve posted are the summary of changes only. L1 continues to exist as does everything else, given there are no material changes.
  7. I think the reason we will need the two radios is because you cannot operate in Class E whilst maintaining continuous two way radio communication with centre and also be on the CTAF. The two will overlap when you join the circuit at 2000.
