Fri, Mar 02, 2012
The week was not nearly the downer that last week was (as the
GAMA numbers showed how badly GA fared in 2011), and in fact, we
discovered we still have friends!
The week's big stories started with the announcement of the
FAA's long awaited re-write of the regs covering minimum Airline
pilot experience levels (and associated issues), and was made even
more intriguing as the USAF broke months of silence and killed the
LAS deal... as Hawker-Beech had hoped. And best of all, we have
clear proof that GA has good friends in high places... and they're
all fighting those @#$%^&* user fees! All this and SO MUCH MORE
in this week's edition of AIRBORNE!
As always, PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you
have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne
mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better
idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming
to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in
mind for the future.
