      Can someone tell me what categorys to tick for a Miles Gemini? Is it small prop and warbird/Vintage?

      How about a Pietenpol Air Camper? I only ticked small prop and it was rejected for categorys. How can an aeroplane built in 1991 be warbird vintage?

        To hopefully answer Ollies' question. My view is that a homebuilt 1991 Pietenpol Aircamper built using modern materials and with a national registry database entry ( i.e G-INFO etc. ) showing its date of build is not warbird/vintage, obviously because of the manufacture date...the trouble is that it looks like it should be because it has roots as far back as 1933. I don't even know if there are any 1933 originals flying ?

        This is where the uploader can help the crew by leaving an explanatory note to screeners in their upload as to why they have selected, or not selected a particular category. The facility is there, use it. I know that the Aircamper isn't vintage because I have an interest in PFA homebuilt aircraft and GA aircraft. Other screeners may be more airliner oriented and not be aware of this.
        If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

          Brian,
          There does not seem to be any origional Pietenpols on the G- reg but thats not to say they dont survive. Either foreign registerd or in museums.

                  Just a quick question.

                  On the Beechcraft T-1A Jayhawk, would the category "business jet" apply to this aircraft?

                        Police registrations?

                        I've always been unsure about police registrations... civilian or military?

                        In Colombia Police aircraft have a PNC (Policia Nacional de Colombia) registration diferent from the civilian HK but sometimes the Police is not technically considered an "armed force" so I'm curious

                        Also because in the database photos of Colombia - Police some have been accepted with "Civilian" and some with "Military"...

                        Thanks for any imput on the matter

                          In most countries the Police Force is considered civilian.

                          The exceptions are countries under military rule which often utilise 'military police'.

                          For Colombia I believe they are civilian.

                            Or even more complicated. Spain for example has a military police organisation "Guardia Civil" which belongs to the military and uses military regs on the aircraft.
                            But they also have various civil police services which use civil regs.

                            So if in doubt I would use the registration as a guideline.

                              OK, I edited the pics I had in the queue going with civilian... mainly in consideration for the argument that police is generally thought as a civilian entity

                              Thanks guys!
