Trump's Budget Includes ATC Privatization

"President Donald Trump’s new budget includes privatization of air traffic control. The document tabled Thursday in Washington contains an outright endorsement of privatization as a move that “would benefit the flying public and taxpayers overall.” The airline industry has been lobbying non stop since Trump’s election for the formation of a non-profit corporation to run the national airspace system controlled by a board of directors dominated by airline representatives. Most general aviation groups have vigorously opposed privatization, saying it would amount to handing the nation’s airspace over to the airlines, something the airlines themselves have suggested is accurate."

This is really no surprise, it is a standard thing to expect from a fiscal conservative who believes that private industry can do anything better than government.

Hoverbike Scorpion-3 Flies

Indoors for its first flight. The first thing that struck me was how close those props are to the rider! The second thing is that if one of the four electric motors fails you are in big trouble without a ballistic parachute.

Paul Bertorelli takes President Donald Trump at his word in pledging to reduce government regulations. He has two suggestions.



I think Bertorelli would make a great President!

München Franz Josef Strauß Airport

Bei meinem Museums-Marathon in München war ich nach der Flugwerft etwas enttäuscht und wollte nochmal richtig große Flugzeuge sehen - und bin weitergefahren an den Münchner Flughafen. Hat sich für mich total gelohnt. :)

A Million Drones For Christmas??

This should worry a lot of people: "As many as a million new toy drones could be given as Christmas gifts this year, an FAA official said at an Airlines for America event in Washington, D.C., on Monday. Rich Swayze, an assistant administrator for policy, said he heard the one-million figure from “several sources” that are studying the impact of drones."

The head of CBP’s aviation wing suggested that his agency oversold prospects for integrating drones into border patrol

The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection launched its drone program with a 2004 pilot study conducted along Arizona’s border with Mexico. Since then, the inspector general calculated that CBP has spent more than $360 million on unmanned aerial vehicles. As of last October, CBP had nine drones in its fleet.
The agency’s tenth drone crashed off the California coast in January 2014.

“Unfortunately, despite its 8-year effort and significant investment of taxpayer dollars, CBP could not demonstrate how much the program has improved border security, largely because the program lacks performance measures and CBP was unaware of the true cost of the program,” Roth told the committee.

Homeland Security Admits $360 Million Drone Program Can't Meet Its Goals

The inspector general hammered Customs and Border Protection on drone program oversight.

Prendre l’avion c’est participer à une escroquerie financière et climatique organisée.

Note personnelle : Le vrai prix des trajets en avion n’est jamais payé en vérité, de son côté le climat lui n’a que faire du prix qu’il soit vrai ou faussé, à chaque trajet, il se dégrade voilà tout. Conclusion : il faut poser les avions et ne plus les utiliser. Oui je sais : la simplicité des solutions est juste inconcevable. :)

This will make you laugh!!

First aerobatic flight for a four-year-old. It is in French but she just keeps saying "encore" (again) and laughing her head off.

News that the Transportation Security Administration missed a whopping 95% of guns and bombs in recent airport security "red team" tests was justifiably shocking. It's clear that we're not getting value for the $7 billion we're paying the TSA annually.

But there's another conclusion, inescapable and disturbing to many, but good news all around: we don't need $7 billion worth of airport security. These results demonstrate that there isn't much risk of airplane terrorism, and we should ratchet security down to pre-9/11 levels.
