So he starts the climb into IMC and then decides to turn round and chat to the pax - that turns poor piloting into aviation negligence - you really want that as his epitaph?

I think it was Mike Tyson who said 'Everyone has a plan, right up until they get punched in the face' - well IIMC is the aviation equivalent of getting punched in the face.

That Smithsonian article is well worth a read - as a technology demonstrator it is an incredible achievement, it weighs less than 4 lbs and will fly at an Earth equivalent of 100,000'!!!

I think FED has more than enough real-world experience of IMC, I believe his point was that you don't necessarily need an AI/AH to recover from a UA - however that was in a FW not RW.

what I mean is that when you fly a Cat 1 ILS, your minima can never be less than 200' - it is a procedure limitation not an aircraft one.

You are limited to Cat 1 DH of 200' regardless - that is the limit of CAT1 ILS procedure, its not an RFM limit.
