Listening Squawk Reference Card

In support of the airspace infringement seminar held in London last year, FASVIG analysed airspace infringement data from across the country and concluded that the use of listening squawks and radar services significantly reduced infringement risk. However, the availability of these services was not well understood and although details are listed in the AIP and in commercial flight guides there was no ready reference available. FASVIG has now produced 30,000 copies of a reference card suitable for planning and in-flight use by GA pilots. A supply of these printed cards has been delivered to the 3 companies that distribute CAA charts in time for a copy to be included with the UK South chart which was effective on 4 March 2017. Copies will also be included with other new charts distributed over the coming year. In the meantime, transponder-equipped pilots can download a copy from The Airspace Safety Initiative website.
