Phil Boyer, president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has a great response to the latest fear-mongering over the Liddle crash. It’s addressed mostly at Mayor Dailey in Chicago, but also takes swipes at other General Aviation (GA) bashers like Hillary Clinton.
You know, for a Republican, New York’s Mayor Bloomberg is a pretty good guy. And he’s also a pilot with more ratings and experience than me. When he says that GA is not a threat to his city, why can’t other people, especially New York Senators and Congresscritters listen to him?
