Faction Suggestion: Federal Aviation Administration

Recommended Posts

Edit - This faction could be a division of the new government faction

 

 

Federal Aviation Administration

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of San Andreas is a national authority with powers to regulate, investigate and enforce all aspects of civil aviation.

Major Functions

Issuing, suspending, or revoking pilot licences

All persons flying in San Andreas must be the holder of an FAA approved pilots licence or be under instruction of a pilot who holds an instructor rating on their pilots licence.

A person can obtain a pilots licence by completing flight training (either through a private flying school or directly through the FAA) and then completing a pilots exam and practical flying test with an FAA examiner. If a person passes their pilots exam and practical flying test they will be issued with a pilots licence.

Regulate, monitor and manage air space

The FAA is the sole regulator of civil aviation within San Andreas and is responsible for managing, regulating and monitoring San Andreas air space. The FAA produces readily accessible publications for pilots including air space charts, weather information and temporary air space restrictions.

Provide air traffic control services to San Andreas

All air traffic control services (ATC) are provided by FAA air traffic controllers. Air traffic controllers undergo specialist training and provide ATC services within controlled air space. ATC services can also be provided to persons outside of controlled air space on pilot request.

Respond to and investigate aviation incidents

All aviation incidents are responded to and investigated by the FAA. This can range from minor breaches such as air space violations, through to air crash investigations, and up to air defense response.

Air defense response is provided by the Surveillance and Response Group (SRG). SRG operatives are military trained pilots and have access to fighter jet aircraft On occasion SRG operatives will conduct aerial patrols in these aircraft to ensure the safety of San Andreas Air Space. Should an emergency situation arise where an aircraft is likely to endanger the lives of people SRG operatives will mobilize and intercept that aircraft. They will attempt by all means to negotiate a safe and peaceful outcome however they have the authority to if necessary disable that aircraft using deadly force.

Prosecuting offenders

The FAA is responsible for holding offenders to account for any breaches of aviation law. Penalties for offenders may range from formal warnings, fines, licence suspensions, and imprisonment.

Divisions

Licensing and Regulations Department

  • Responsible for issuing, suspending, and revoking pilot licences
  • Produce publications for pilots relating to civil aviation (including air space maps, restrictions, weather information)
  • Prosecuting offenders violating aviation law

Surveillance and Response Group (SRG)

  • Monitor radars and identify unidentified flying objects
  • Respond to air security incidents

Air Traffic Control Services

  • Provide Air Traffic Control services to all aircraft in San Andreas

(( Out of character ))

Lets bring aviation roleplay to Eclipse RP. With aviation must come regulation and enforcement, and that is precisely what the FAA will do.

People must apply for and get a pilots licence from the FAA to be able to fly.

If people are found flying unlicensed or breaching aviation law the FAA will issue charges.

FAA will create all documents relating to aviation rules, air space etc.

FAA SRG operatives will have access to fighter jets but strict conditions and roleplay standards will be imposed.

Players flying air craft will need to set their radio to the ATC frequency and take instructions from air traffic controllers. Refusing to do so is a serious offence and will likely result in pilots licences being revoked, criminal charges and depending on the circumstances if serious enough may result in a figher jet being scrambled to intercept.

Whilst this post does not go into elaborate detail if this idea is approved in concept I will develop this much further to be a full working model.

 

(( Fighter Jets Intercepting Aircraft - How will it look? ))

Fighter jet intercepts for aircraft won't be an excuse to shoot down aircraft. It will be a series of procedures and defined escalation process, with the ultimate escalation and last resort being to shoot the plane down.

It will be similar to this video here:

Huge +1 especially the fighter jet part since i can see how people may abuse their pilots license. So stopping them quickly is a must.

What I had in mind (and I'll link it into the main part of the post) for fighter jet intercepts was something like this:

+1 Love the idea of aircraft, -1 on the faction idea due to already limited players and limited factions you can join at one time.

Discussed quite a bit already here. A lot of this can be automated or managed by staff or overseen by police due to what should be a very small limit of aircraft at one time.

Very interesting, I would definitely try to get a license and my own helicopter if this was a thing. I can also imagine people causing some havoc with helicopters, like prison breaks and all that. It would be interesting to see, but there should be severe IC consequences. Helicopters/planes should be very expensive and same goes for fuel. I see this as more late game, luxury content. People could also earn money off of this, so it does offer lots of potential.

There should be a script to check if someone had aviation training (MD, PD and FAA), so people don't just steal helis/planes and do whatever they want with them. This would be essential, since the pilot could timeout.

I definitively would be opposed to having a legal faction dedicated to this, as am I opposed to having jets ready to intercept civilian aircraft.

Fighter jets are whats used to intercept civilian aircraft - This would be the air force on request from air traffic control via the necessary chains of command but for the purpose of the server and it's population it makes sense to have it all in one faction.
