    Default 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!

    Thanks for the answer Anthony...

    but I have another one....

    An AC-47 should have the "Cargo" category selected? And I already checked "Warbird/Vintage", is that correct?

    Thanks again!

    A Lockheed L-188A(F) Electra; is that a vintage aircraft or not.

    A few weeks ago I had an instand add with a photo of this a/c from ALM (Antilian airlines), but this week I had a rejection for the same aircrafttype (LN-FOH from Fred Olsen), because of missing the vintage category; according to a screener comment.

    Can anybody help me?
    Is this a vintage a/c or not?

    Yes as far as I am concerned, provided that the picture that you upload is not of an aircraft currently flying in service. If you do select warbird/vintage on aircraft like this then leave a note to the screeners with your reason why. We can always delete it if inappropriate and you have advised us that you're not sure.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Default Jabiru j400

    Hi All,

    I have a photo of AMATEUR BUILT AIRCRAFT, JABIRU J400. I cannot find it under any of the aircraft category in the upload page, though JABIRU J400 exist in the database. Any help to locate this aircraft in the upload list is highly appreciated.

    Cheers and Happy new year to All.

    Mehdi.

    I am not sure quite how that is a category question, however on the menus select:

    Ultralight Aircraft >> Jabiru >> Jabiru J400

    Cheers.

    Hi All,

    New to all this, and I apologise in advance if I have hijacked a thread. I normally take Military Aircraft, and I am abit confused with the Categories, if it is for example a Hercules - I get the cargo Category ticked. But what about if it is Eurofighter? Airliners - again same problem if only carrying passengers,

    Do I therefore not tick a section when it doesn't apply?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Yes, many photos do not need any categories selected.

    For military aircraft make certian that you select "military" as the genre. It does not always autofill as such.

    Cheerio
    Regarding the C-21's(Learjets) and C-37A (Gulfstreams), now these are Military Bizjets, but do they also get Cargo checked because of their C designation or is that only for Heavy haulers like the C-130, C-17 and such?

    If so, this needs to have Cargo checked

    It's really only for the heavy haulers which is more in keeping with our viewers expectations.
