Hmm interesting phrase ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_facto_standardThe term de facto standard is used in contrast with obligatory standards (also known as "de jure standards"); or to express the dominant voluntary standard, when there is more than one standard available for the same use.
Do you remember the published results of the conspicuity survey by the CAA, which we had asked the results to be published after 1 yearviewtopic.php?f=1&t=110220&start=30#p1649466
Through the use of the freedom of information act, we were able to obtain the raw data from the CAA. The raw data contains far more detailed and definitive information than the 'selective' data presented in the report
Even looking at this spot analysis at the beginning of 2018This data will make pleasant reading for some, and uncomfortable reading for others
I can tell you that after almost one year on from the information published in this report, we can happily report that we see no lapse in take-up from the flying community throughout the UK and Europe
With respect to the relevance of the data, PilotAware had only started shipping 20 months before the survey.
Oh and by the way, for the avoidance of doubt - I have found it to be very pleasant reading
Finally the phrase 'flood the market
' implies insincerity in our purpose, whereas people who know us, know that this is not the case - that being said, you may want to check out ebay for a pair of waders
