    Default Not a good day for aviation

    Some bad articles related to aviation in today's paper. Sad really.

    On the contrary, the St Mary's crash probably did more for aviation safety than anything in a long time. It's too bad people have to die before things change though.

    Dangerous mindsets! Once one safety protocol is dismissed it becomes common practice to dismiss others. Unfortunately, innocent, trusting people and their loved ones suffer the consequences of this reckless behavior.

    Unfortunately the time lapse from accident to sensational newspaper expo tends to be three or four years. So while the company may have long since been fined and corrections made, the news article has folks crying for reforms that have long since occurred.

    That's because it usually takes the NTSB that long to come out with a probable cause.

    I mean look at UPS 6. I think that report took 5 years and not a single thing has been done to prevent it from happening again. Only a flight crew died so no one really cares. You have to kill a lot of the public first.
