AVweb's Question of the Week ...
*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, an AVweb reader wanted to know how the wide availability of global positioning technology has affected pilots' flying habits. Naturally, we put the question to our readers — and got some not-too-surprising results:
A whopping 87% of those who responded told us GPS is their primary navigation aid.
A mere 7% prefer navs and ADF to GPS, while even fewer readers (6% of those polled) rely primarily on paper charts.
Two readers admitted that GPS is too complex for them — or perhaps too much of a hassle to learn — but they weren't enough to make up a full 1% of the sampling. (Sorry, guys.)
*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
It seems there are those who feel the services pilots receive — from air traffic control to other weather and flight services — do not come with a direct cost. With user fees on the tip of everyone's tongues, AVweb wants to know how much you'd be willing to pay for these services.
