AVweb's Question of the Week ...
Last week, AVweb asked the loaded question on everyone's mind: Was the SpaceShipOne launch really historic — or was it just hype? 55% of readers who responded to our poll said this was definitely a historic moment for flight. Another 25% of respondents went a step further, telling us they were ready to purchase a ticket to the upper atmosphere today. But a few dependably cynical AVweb readers (20%) said, "No big deal — it was only a matter of time."
The FAA recently selected five new airports to participate in their Military Airport Program (MAP). As part of the program, the airports will receive funding in exchange for growing their "joint use" facilities — in theory, alleviating pressures on overloaded GA airports. Will it work? Tell us what you think.
