Anything less than 5 miles in CAS is an Airprox.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Actually saw one yesterday so there must be at least 3 serviceable. Nice and quiet too.

If the EFA was going flat out, then they'd be closing at a fair old rate. How long does it take to cover 3.5 miles with a closing speed of 1500 knots? A few seconds?

Hang on, with my old Mental Dead Reckoning Skills, 1500 kts is umm.... divided by 60. 3.3 Nautical Miles is how many feet? Errr... nope, I need an MFD. Or a Navigator.

An AIRPROX has no separation trigger criteria built in to it. You could actually have an AIRPROX with greater than standard separation between the aircraft at all times. And on the other hand you could have aircraft who do not have standard separation between them, but would not be deemed to be in an AIRPROX situation.

The official definition:

''an Airprox is a situation in which, in the opinion of a pilot or a controller, the distance between aircraft as well as their relative positions and speed have been such that the safety of the aircraft involved was or may have been compromised.''
