"Unsafe at any speed" news story

Postby Richdmoore » Wed Jul 15, 2009 8:47 pm

One of the local news channels in Portland, OR is running a news story on kit-built planes called "Unsafe at Any Speed." After last week's attack on by CBS on GA airports, it looks like the local CBS station is just piling it on.

The news store isn't on until 11 tonight, will try to watch it if I have time to see if they are "fair and balanced" or just more hype (I bet the later.)

Does anyone have an email to AOPA/EAA so they can be made aware of this news story and try to refute any false information?

From the AOPA web site, Im not an EAA member so not sure about them
As UCAP has taught me: "Time spent flying is not subtracted from your lifespan".

Thanks, the actual news story was not as bad as I feared, an nothing like the "death machine" ad.
Here is a link to the actual story that aired:
