Airspace Classifications- what about SAR in these air spaces

Thanks Sunny

In SAR and Airspace classifications I presume they wanted to know the clearances / applicability of the airspace classifications for SAR

hello guys , i have a quick question, when our a/c and other a/c both have tcas 2 and mode c( in 1 a/c) and mode s( in another a/c), it gives TA+RA, now when both the a/c have tcas2 and mode s, it gives complementary RA using the datalink system ..what does this mean? how does this differs from the 1st case, besides tht it inform the ground controller automatically. thanks in advance...

It means that the TCAS of both the ac will give complimentary manouvering advice to both the ac so that there is no conflict. This is specially important where both the aircraft are at the same level and the warning has to be coordinated so that one climbs while the other descends

FAF for CANPA

The DGCA circular on CANPA says that if no FAF is designated for a profile then to carry out CANPA there is aneed to create pseudo FAF with a 3 deg glidepath. My doubt is what distance do we create this pseudo FAF?
