AVweb's Question of the Week ...
Last week, AVweb asked the somber question, "How many friends have you lost to flying?" Thankfully, the most popular response was "none," shared by nearly 40% of those who participated in the poll. Less reassuring, however, was the number of readers who told us they had lost five or more friends in aviation-related deaths — 94 of you. The two answers accounted for 60% of responses, with another 32% of respondents having lost one or two friends.
Though often simply a source of frustration, a good deal of adrenaline (read panic) was released Wednesday, June 9, in Washington, D.C., when a Governor's aircraft managed to enter restricted airspace without properly following the appropriate arrival procedures. As Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) continue to pop up across the country, we'll ask in very black and white terms for your thoughts. For this question, we do not ask that you agree entirely with either choice — but we do ask that you pick a side.
TFRs — love 'em or hate 'em? Click here to chime in.
