In article <airliners.1996.2397@ohare.Chicago.COM>, email@example.com says... >It is also important to keep in mind that TCAS is just a warning system. >ATC is still predicated on "see and avoid" when possible, and adherence >to standard procedures and flight plans by both pilots and ATC and the >competence of ATC when not. As far as TCAS is concerned, a pilot is expected to comply with an RA unless he has better information (i.e. visual on the intruder aircraft). He is also allowed to deviate from his assigned altitude to the extent necessary to comply with the RA ( ussually only several hundred feet if performed properly).
