This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Last week, we asked you to put yourselves in the position of the major airplane makers and tell us how you'd react to the oppressive antipathy toward private jets that's been dominating the headlines.

In a turn that surprised us only a little, the clear majority of you favored being aggressive, like Cessna which may bode well for their "Rise" campaign. A full 58% of those who took time to answer sided with Pelton's proactive promotion of business flying, while only 10% of you said it's time to be afraid.

Enough pretending that you're someone else. Even GA pilots are beginning to feel pressure for their "rich man's hobby" in this turbulent economy. This week, we'd like to know how your friends, family, and peers view your involvement with aviation.

Do others think you're rich because you fly?
