Aero-News Quote of the Day
"We do not contend that flying in
small planes is dangerous, rather that American Flyers failed to
properly manage the risks in flying and in so doing cut short this
young man's life... There is no defensible or logical reason for a
primary flight student who was still learning how to fly in visual
conditions to be receiving training in weather conditions that were
at or below those minimally required for instrument flying. Doing
so is simply reckless and irresponsible."
