Are you in Canada? Asking about the "control zone" sticks out.Hi...
Can a CRJ-200 type aircraft be allowed for Special VFR operations within a control zone?
Ok. So you asked the question, didn’t answer where you were, and already know the answer. Is this supposed to be a teaching moment?I completely agree with both of you, but there are some countries that put some restrictions for Special VFR operations. Like in UK, they normally allow special VFR operations to aircraft of MTOW up to 5700 kg only. Some countries allow only CAT A aircraft to operate special VFR flights.
I have cleared an rj200 for special vfr twice in my career at LBB, both were test flights.So in the UK and other parts of Europe, I'm seeing on some sites that Special VFR in control zones is limited to 140kts as a maximum indicated speed.
That would mean there's no way a CRJ200 would be flying around Special VFR.
New rule, old rule and has been outdated, I'm not sure what the case is really.
