RE: RW Scene Response


One of our pilots worked out a system with the FAA.  Weather Scene or IHT
flight, We fax Houston Center with Our Make, Model, Year, and N number.  We
also include the Crew's SS numbers.  We give the Est. time that we will be
on the call.  We are also going to give the direction and miles from
Hattiesburg, our base.  Our Dispatchers then call Houston Center and get a
squawk code.  Most of the time things go fast.  Our program is VFR only,
there fore we can't file an IFR flight plan.

Subject: RW Scene Response

Greetings.  I just came back to duty after being off since Tuesday.  In
my morning briefing as supervisor, and according to my FBO operator,
under the current FAA restrictions, even Rotorcraft (and other VFR Only
aircraft) are supposed to file an IFR Flightplan before liftoff; even
for a scene response.  But yet another person interpreted the ruling
that Lifeguard flights don't have to follow that guideline, at least for
SCENE responses.
Can anyone out there tell me what your program is doing currently, and
where to reference for the FAA regs?
