RE: RW Scene Response

Title: Message
Thank You ALL for the overwhelming response to my question, please keep them coming.  I should have mentioned, we are in an A-Star, VFR ONLY, but STILL required by local drum beaters to file an IFR plan...
I just printed some of these and handed to my cheif RW pilot, he thanks you all as well, and yes, it seems that each airport, and in fact each controller is intrepreting the rulings independantly right now..
Thanks again, hope to receive more, as this thread will hopefully help others.

We do not fly IFR and have to get a special transponder code assigned prior to LO.  The local tower has been facilitating that for us so there has been very little delay. We advise them of the scene location and probable destination and they coordinate with the approach control center. In flight, we are under constant contact with air traffic controllers. It means more work for the pilot but it hasn't caused significant problems.
We did get cancelled on a call late one night and shortly after turning back we got a  visit from a very fast moving object. Not close enough for us to see who it was, but close enough to let us know they were there.
