Caller ID or general aviation in Russia and abroad.


All accustomed that aviation in general, is divided into two components, a military and civil aviation. What GA - General Aviation, few people imagine. The media in Russia often misinterpret this term as well. A small, light airplane that rolls for the entertainment of the public from a village field is not yet general aviation. For us, for Russians, the term "aviation" has a slightly different meaning than for Europeans or Americans. For us, aviation is airplanes, pilots, airfields, technical personnel, in general, a polysemantic term. For the whole world, aviation is above all action, that is, the flights themselves. Hence the ambiguity of the interpretation of the term itself AND HE here and there. In the West, adopted the term «General aviation» ie - general aviation, which is neither a military nor a commercial on regular lines. All other flights and there - general aviation.


 For a better understanding of the place AND HE in our, domestic conditions, it is quite appropriate to draw an analogy with ground road transport. There is urban transport, buses, trolleybuses, trams that carry passengers from point A to point B. There are route taxis that also carry passengers on a commercial basis. And there is a taxi. In addition to these types, there are also auxiliary types of land, road transport. These are sweepers, all kinds of special vehicles, policemen, ambulances. There are machines that remove asphalt, drill wells, sweep and water roads, etc. But there are also personal, private vehicles. So, if our general aviation does not belong to regular airlines, and does not belong to military aviation, then it must perform all other functions.

  The number and variety of works for Aviation OH so great that ICAO (an international organization of civil aviation), to define the term General aviation, went by exclusion. "The flight of the aircraft, except for commercial air transport and flight-related performance of aerial works". In turn, aerial work is defined as  "The flight of the aircraft in which the aircraft is used for specialized services in areas such as agriculture, construction, photography, topographic surveying, observation and patrol, search and rescue, aerial advertisement, etc." (ICAO Annex 6 Aircraft Operations).

 In general, it turns out that these are all flights, except for the commercial transportation of people or goods from point A to point B, that is, any flight of the aircraft to perform a specific job.
