My reply to the EAA, anybody who disagrees?

By now it should be clear to every pilot that the class B restriction
is not based on rational or technical aspects.

Let's therefore concentrate on the psychological aspects.

Uncontrolled flight probably sounds very dangerous to the
general public including the general politician.

Therefore I would suggest to declare the the areas under class B
to CVFR zones. (Controlled Visual Flight Rules) This class
existed some years ago, at least in Europe.

This could be a headline that makes the general public feel safe.

For apparent ground safety it could be an option to invite
some militairy on the fields. Most aeroclubs or FBOs would
happily support two coffee drinking GIs if that would assure
normal flight operations. Again, to the general public this might
make the difference.
