Re: Fallout from JFK ATC incident

Yeah. It is a MEDIA EVENT. As far as I am concerned it was no big deal. WAY more was made of it than was necessary.

Re: GA Growth Ahead?

The recovery will come when we start buying things again. So hold your breath, click your heels, cross your fingers, what ever you do, take a leap of faith and go flying, buy a new TV, and tell everyone you meet how good it feels to be part of the recovery.

Dumb question: Is there any difference legally between a controller giving you vectors to a VOR 225 miles away versus the controller telling you to turn direct to the same VOR?

Re: NWA pilots misses KMSP by 150 miles!

Alright, so I read somewhere today that the pilots in this case have had their licenses revoked by the FAA. Is that a typical response?
