Last week, AVweb asked for your reactions to the closing of Potomac Airfield, a small GA airport near one of our favorite hotly-debated airspaces — Washington, D.C.

Nearly 94% of those who responded to our poll were concerned about the implications of Potomac's closing.  267 of you asked How long before they come for my airport? and another 304 readers wondered How did my own government become "they"?

Only 5% of respondents — a mere 33 readers at press time —saw some value in closing Potomac to protect the sensitive airpace over and around the nation's capital.

Six readers shrugged their shoulders and answered What do I care?


This week, AVweb wants to know if you still want to be a commercial jet pilot when you grow up.

The lure of the airlines. Recent times have put the spotlight on some of the downsides of professional big-jet piloting.  Do you still want to fly the heavy iron, or have you been won over by the dark side?
