Compare to GenAv -- beyond ground sch...

Re: Drones pushing out GenAv (Airspace)

Jack,

There is a very recent and vivid example of moneyed interest competing with aviation writ large -- LightSquared. If it was just a matter of money, we'd have lost that battle and GPS would be considerably less useful than it currently remains.

Re: "Morgan Fairchild" - UCAP #360

Jeb,

Re: "Echo-Papa-Papa" UCAP #349

Jack, Only part way through the episode (my commute got shorter last year -- you'd think that was a good thing, right?), but I wonder if Linda's problem isn't finding a CFI(I), or even an AME in Hong Kong. I imagine that there's no shortage of US CFIs flying around the world, and even some enterpris...
