Can anyone determine type of aircraft? I assume it's a Cessna..
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 3):|
Whats the TCAS requirements for the Aircraft type out there.....
|Quoting Semaex (Reply 4):|
There's no TCAS requirement for such small aircraft, and I doubt there really is a requirement at all for any aircraft, except when operating in certain airspaces, eg A/B/C/D in North America or Europe, but that's just my guess.
TCAS is an equipment that helps, but mustn't be used for relying on.
|Quoting jgarrido (Reply 6):|
I suppose it depends on your definition of "relying", but in my experience and opinion as an air traffic controller if comercial aircraft were relying on (as in they are dependent on) TCAS to keep them safe then something is wrong.

IANAP, but shouldn't aircraft, even light planes like these, have some sort of seperation distance, with the primary responsibility resting with the pilot of the following plane?

Probably one of the most famous ones that I'm aware of happened in 1999 in Florida when a Piper Cadet collided on top of a Cessna 152 and they became stuck but still landed with no fatalities.
This was the best non-member link I could find for that story.
