sandpiper Posted July 11, 2013 Report Share Posted July 11, 2013 CT - I notice that you, and maybe others have Zaon's. Are they worth it? My reason for asking is that yesterday I came as close as I ever have to a mid air. I think the only time I have been closer to another aircraft in flight is when I was flying for my uncle, Sam that is. I know it was an RV, seemed to be defending from my 2 o'clock. I was climbing out of a traffic pattern having departed on the downwind and was south of the airport and about 1000' above pattern altitude. All my actions and intentions were self announced. He came out of my blind spot from the wing root and emerged sort of stationary except getting bigger. I slammed forward stick and rolled left. He may have seen me at the same time as he appeared to roll to his left. A flash of color and that was it. So, would the Zaon have helped? Provided he had a transponder?
