I find the a2 cofc usefully for adding lights. So I go over the 250g limit and I’m loud to go up to 500g but with no intentional over flying people. This is the only advantage I really got out of having the a2 cofc. We lost all the c class rating so we loss the main purpose of having the a2 cofc. This is old news now.
The fly in city’s with a 50m horizontal separation from uninvolved people makes this useless in the city. So it an odd qualification. I only got the qualification because people said it would make me flyer safer. What a load of ruppish it did showed me I was safe flyer already so I guess it did give me more confidence in my decision making process.:+1:
