Tuesday’s horrible attack was perpetrated by terrorists hijacking commercial jetliners. Not by terrorists in GA airplanes. So why is GA still grounded, and commercial planes can fly again? It should be the other way around!
For instance, this restriction on knives is unenforcable. Anyone can hide a non-metal knife on his body and bring it aboard a commercial airliner.
On the other hand, what damage could a suicide terrorist do in a non-jet GA airplane? Slam into a building? He could probably kill more people by WALKING into that same building and opening up with an AK-47.
Again, the fact that GA traffic is being singled out is unwarranted and un-American. The real danger are sloppy security procedures and open cockpit doors in commercial aviation, not those dinky little 2000 pound or 3000 pound GA airplanes being flown by us decent, hard-working men and women. Call your congressman and demand an end to this unfairness.
