Airborne 01.26.15: Pirker Settles w/FAA, Harrelson's Polar Journey, FAA Sued

Also: Airborne Unlimited Under The Weather (In More Ways Than One), House GA Caucus, New CubCrafters Boss, NAB Featuring UAVs, House Checks FAA Cert Processes, FAA Goes Off On Sleep Apnea... Again

A quick caveat... Ashley is REALLY under the weather and the entire ANN crew is traveling this week/scattered all over the known universe... which required some highly imaginative substitute tomfoolery to take Ashley's place for a day or two. So Jim Campbell steps in, where he's stuck in the middle of a snowstorm in the boonies of Indiana, in a hotel room with really lousy net access. But, as always, we persevered (ANN's specialty--no matter how great the odds). The results are acceptable, but let's just say that Ashley will NEVER have to worry about Jim competing for her job. With luck, we can get her back to work in a day or two and quit subjecting you to that ugly Jim guy...
