2 strokes and class d


Recommended Posts

I was going to research this tonight, but ran out of time so may as well just put it out there... though don't shoot me down if it's a bit of an obvious question! blink.gif.7ee21b69ed31ab2b1903acc52ec4cc3f.gif

 

Was just wondering if you can fly a 2 stroke aircraft into a Class D aerodrome, i.e controlled airspace. I can even install an encoded transponder for such a thing, but is it possible in the regs? I recall somewhere you need a certified engine for controlled airspace, I'm assuming 2 stroke rotax engines aren't a certified aircraft engine!?

 

I know of people that have flown Drifters into Class C airspace, and landed at aerodromes as such, but never heard how they got about doing it.

 

Thanks!

Certified is NOT the requirement ... Approved is the requirement and a two stroke of the right type is approved. You can even VH experimental register a 2stroke Drifter if you want and as long as it is transponder equipped you can fly CTA.

 

But 95-10 is out Tomo sorry buddy.

I think Trike-wise, 32 rego (Aka T2 in HGFA jargon) is also in, but 10 (Aka T1 in HGFA jargon) are out.

 

Just in case you were thinking of trikes. (Probably not)
