Agreed. Not a real issue.

I no its not a issue, our great planes are easier to spot becasue they are big

But the funny part is..more people flying little airplanes farther out in no man land then we ever do..simple reason..are cost to much to let them go to far out

Furhter to the incident at the Scale Aerobatics NATS last year it was mentioned that the same aircraft is a regular site in the area and it was mentioned that the pilot was use to referencing .40 size to .60 size aircraft from the field and may have percieved that our larger, 30 -40% aircraft where closer to him then believed as they would look bigger at the same distance,

Again no excuse on his part to deliberatly invade our airspace then lodge a formal and official complaint with NAVCanda about the proximity of our models to his aircraft.

I am a full-scale pilot myself so don't think I am ragging on this guy as just a modeller.

I mean what's next.. ban sailboats form lakes because a float plane pilot flys to close to one and says the mast invaded his airspace.

To Jim:

For one thing Jim when you organize a special event that
ATC should be made aware of. You do not make arrangement
with a particular controller, that is nonsense. You contact the
Chief Controller well in advance so that he will notify all of his Staff.
I know of models with 75cc and another with a 90cc.
I saw last year a 42% Scale Yak with a 300cc so how is that for size.

If on the VTA (VFR Terminal Charts) A model flying area was depicted as a 2 or 3 mile radius where the minimum altitudes applies; a safety cautious pilot would easily steer from that area.

Bear in mind that a commercial aircraft can sneak up pretty quickly
being you the r/c pilot. If you consider that the aircraft's altimeter
is set a the station pressure in other words ASL (above see level)
and your field that you are flying from maybe quite high above ASL.
You the R/C pilot flies at an altitude at ground level AGL (Above Ground
Level) There are instance where the spacing between the two is
quite minimal.

For controllers to be lazy...why dont you go see the controllers
at work during a busy period (if they will allow you in)at the Morntreal Area Control Centre sometime.

MAAC Safety Code, Version 006, Section 4.4 Item 6. If R/C Pilots/modelers fly their model aircraft within ten (10) Km of the centre of an airport, notice of operations will be given to the airport authority and/or tower. A spotter shall be used to avoid having models fly in the proximity of full size aircraft.
