Last week, AVweb asked (totally anonymously) if our readers had ever taken a drink of alcohol within the eight-hour window before a flight.

Much to our relief, 90% of respondents said no.  (So much for our big advertising contract with Anheuser-Busch.)

The remaining 10% were split evenly among our other possible answers:

I'm sure I've had a sip within the eight-hour window.  (3%)

The rule is about being impaired and I've never flown while impaired, eight-hour rule notwithstanding.  (4%)

At the time, I didn't think so but in hindsight, I may have made a mistake.  (3%)


In October, Lockheed Martin (the contract's lowest bidder) will begin its takeover of flight service stations.  What's your prediction for the future of FSS?
