This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Last week, we asked how many AVweb readers are planning to make the pilgrimage to Oshkosh this summer for EAA AirVenture.  We were pleased to see that 52% of those who answered our survey will be at the show.  (Stop by the booth and say hi, O.K.?)

A complete breakdown of the responses can be viewed here.
(You may be asked to register an answer, if you haven't already.)


Including last week's fatal midair collision between a Cessna 172 and Beech Bonanza, there have been 24 fatal and 16 non-fatal midair collisions involving GA aircraft in the U.S. since 1997. Should the FAA mandate that all GA aircraft be equipped with traffic advisory systems to help prevent midairs?
