Default Reporting the news

I am just passing the news along. I realize that most of you here are retired or are about to be but there are young people here who are investing a small fortune in a dream that is long gone. They actually believe that pilots still fly the planes.

I would be more worried about the impending Chinese take over of global aviation. You guys are really going to hate that.

They have flight schools in development in China that will train thousands of communist raised pilots at a time. Those guys don't care of they ever touch the controls. Managements ultimate dream pilot; Obedient, grateful and silent automatons.

Automation of the aircraft and flight deck at a fraction of what pilots cost today.
