    ...the bat rastards that started this boondoggle have long since gone and went to the jobs with the airlines. I suppose they are trying to coax the airlines to "get onboard" the NextGen train. This boondoggle will lock out the GA. The bat rastards who started this don't care about GA. They never have.

    Meanwhile.... On the radio today....
    "Singapore, Speedtape123 level 390 on squawk 6060."
    "Speedtape123, Singapore Control, ADB-S identified, flight plan route."

    As the US falls behind more and more, Nex-Gen has already been standardized by much of the world....

    ...if the US beurocratic system knew how to bid projects, without quid pro quo, they wouldn't be over budget and behind schedule. The "biggly one" will whip them into shape!!

    Ready to throw the switch on Next/Gen in the U. S.? I saw a documentary about a year ago that there was still a lot to work out and was a "Few Years Away". Wow time DOES fly. Interesting article but I think we'll be using the current ATC for sometime to come.

    ...it will be up to congress to have the 5 year authorization. If they kick the can down the road, I doubt it will be done in 18 monthes. There's about 140,.000 aircraft to get the new equipment installed.

    The "regulator" has their feet to the fire with UAS. Amazon, Google and the other "box chuckers", want to use the UAS to make deliveries. The "regulator" doesn't even have rules for 135 UAS operations. One company wants to have 10,000 UAS flying a day. Can't wait to see how that works out!! The "regulator'' have their marching orders to "make it happen"!! That was 6 years ago.

    Since the US has more aircraft operations a day than any other country, one can say they are a day late and a few billion dollars short. Someone got a pretty good contract payout!!
