…OR JUST MAYBE, GENERAL AVIATION IS THE LTIMATE ANSWER
June’s issue of the venerable Atlantic Monthly magazine, out this week, features a cover story on, of all things, general aviation. Airlines are fine for long-haul flights between major hubs, says author James Fallows – a private pilot – but thousands of smaller, more convenient airports are underused. The solution, says Fallows, is already in the works: safe, high-tech, affordable small airplanes and jets, like those under development by Cirrus and Eclipse. Instrument landing systems at more small fields. NASA’s AGATE program, and more. Give yourself a treat, and take the time to read a knowledgeable, positive GA article in the general press – it won’t likely happen again anytime soon.
NOTE: AVweb’s NewsWire includes a link to an online discussion of James Fallows’ article.
Way to go, Jim! We’re proud to know you. Keep beating the drum.
