Fly Right!!!

GUEST EDITORIAL. In the aftermath of the recent mid-air in India between an IL-76 and an opposite-direction B-747 flying the same airway, the authors suggest that pilots might well use the remarkable accuracy of today's modern GPS or IRS/INS navigation gear to enhance safety by flying a mile or two to the right of centerline. Although their comments are aimed primarily at international airline operations under IFR, the idea would seem to have equal merit for general aviation pilots and VFR operations.
