AVweb's Question of the Week ...
*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb asked what you thought about the privatization of FSS — specifically, Lockheed-Martin's scheduled takeover of the system in October 2005.
The biggest segment of you (38% of respondents) thought the move would bring us "one step closer to user fees." Another substantial slice of our readership (30%) described themselves as "cautiously optimistic" about the move.
11% of you expected a bumpy transition with the potential for big problems, and 6% expressed excitement at the possibility of modernization and change.
Only 2% of you thought this was the best thing to ever happen to FSS, and 13% are preparing for the End Times.
*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
The Lycoming verdict. A jury has decided Lycoming must pay nearly $100 million as a result of crankshaft failures, plane crashes, and subsequent litigation. What do you think this bodes for Lycoming (and the aviation community)?
