ANN's Daily Aero-Term (09.17.20): ICAO Three-Letter Designator (3LD)

ICAO Three−Letter Designator (3LD) An ICAO 3LD is an exclusive designator that, when used together with a flight number, becomes the aircraft call sign and provides distinct aircraft identification to air traffic control (ATC). ICAO approves 3LDs to enhance the safety and security of the air traffic system. An ICAO 3LD may be assigned to a company, agency, or organization and is used instead of the aircraft registration number for ATC operational and security purposes. An  ICAO 3LD is also used for aircraft identification in the flight plan and associated messages and can be used for domestic and international flights. A telephony associated with an ICAO 3LD is used for radio communication.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (09.17.20)

"Boeing’s design and development of the 737 MAX was marred by technical design failures, lack of transparency with both regulators and customers, and efforts to obfuscate information about the operation of the aircraft. During development of the 737 MAX, Boeing engineers raised safety concerns about MCAS being tied to a single AOA sensor. Another Boeing engineer raised concerns about not having a synthetic airspeed sensor on the 737 MAX. In the wake of the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines tragedies, Boeing has now acknowledged some of these issues by planning to have two AOA sensors feed into MCAS, for instance. In January 2020, despite the fact that Boeing’s internal directive for the 737 MAX program made crystal clear that nothing should jeopardize Level B non-simulator pilot training requirements, Boeing reversed course by recommending that pilot simulator training on the 737 MAX will be needed before it returns to service. Boeing’s responses to safety issues raised in the 737 MAX program have consistently been too late....."

Tecnam P2012 SENTINEL SMP Rolls Out

P2012 Sentinel SMP (Special Mission Platform) Offers Multi-Mission Capabilities

Tecnam's new P2012 Sentinel SMP is readying to tackle the Special Mission Platform Market... The P2012 Sentinel SMP, compared to their P2006T Twin SMP, integrates higher payloads, additional operator and observer stations and new capabilities, including approval for FIKI (Flight Into Known Icing), while also improving mission efficiency. The operator may benefit from increased range, endurance, cabin volume and crew space. TECNAM has undertaken a program with L3 HARRIS Wescam MX - series Electro Optical Sensors optimized integration. This will greatly improve the law-enforcement mission efficiency when performed with the P2012 Sentinel, and offers the capability of accommodating (in addition to one Wescam MX-10, MX-15 or MX-20 turret) other mission sensors such as a SAR Radar, providing the P2012 SMP with the mission capabilities normally pertaining to CS/FAR 25 platforms at a fraction of their acquisition and operating costs.
