Encyclopedia > ADC Aircraft

ADC Aircraft (Aircraft Disposals Company) was a British firm established in March 1920 to take advantage of the large number of World War I-surplus military aircraft on the market. ADC bought ex-military aircraft and converted them to various civil roles before on-selling them. The company was finally wound up in 1930.

The ADC 1 also instructed the crew to report approaching 4,000 ft. The crew acknowledged the clearance but later advised that they were unable to report approaching 4,000 ft due to frequency congestion.
The ADC 1 had assigned 4,000 ft so that a procedural separation standard of 1,000 ft could be maintained with other aircraft until he could see the B1900 and apply visual separation.
The ADC 1 was unable to apply the required separation standard, either 1,000 ft vertically, or a minimum horizontal distance determined using the appropriate `Lateral Separation' standard from the Manual of Air Traffic Services (MATS), between the B1900 and the traffic inbound to the southern circuit.
