Last week, AVweb asked whether the FAA should require traffic
advisory systems for all aircraft to reduce the number of midair
collisions (and other threats to aviation safety). Not
surprisingly, the readers who answered our poll overwhelmingly said
no, we don't need yet more avionics mandated by the FAA.
A complete breakdown of the responses can be viewed
here. (You may be asked to register an answer, if you haven't already.)
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
The House of Representatives has passed a bill that would make it a
crime to point a laser at an aircraft, punishable by up to five years in
prison. Does the punishment fit the crime?
