Carbon Monoxide detector consultation

In addressing an AAIB recommendation regarding carbon monoxide detectors, the CAA has published proposals set out in a consultation that are integral to understanding what may be holding pilots back from using this potentially lifesaving equipment, and whether the CAA should be doing more to encourage its adoption.

You can view and respond to the consultation here.

The BGA recommends the use of an active CO detector in piston powered aircraft where there is a risk that CO could enter the cockpit, e.g. a TMG or an aeroplane.
