Hi Stan, I don't for a moment believe that any of the above gave up on the investigation of these things. I suspect that they are much more involved then they let on. Having set up their protocols over the years they can now move along and let the civilians argue about what they are or are not. Often Air Force explanations come from desk jocks who don't know a jet engine from a can opener but do know how to read a prepared statement. Since CIVIS is still alive and well in Canada I suspect it is part of the FARs in the United States as well. Most private pilots are unaware of the regulation in (CARs) in Canada - this from personal experience. I was 'stiffed' a couple or three years back when I made inquiries in the UK to the CAA about a similar regulation for civilian pilots. Although I had been successful in getting ordinary information relating to air regs there, in this case I received no replies despite follow up emails. I suspect that there must have been some civilian UK mirror regulation similar to the Can/Am regulation regarding CIVIS type regulations on this continent. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
