From their website... Flying Blind: Small Plane Accidents Tune in Monday, July 8 at 10/9 p.m. CT Repeats 2/1 a.m. CT A look at why there's a small plane crash almost every day and what can be done to make the skies safer. More than 600 people die each year in crashes involving small planes, including recent victims John F. Kennedy Jr. and golf star Payne Stewart. Should the federal government require that all small plane pilots be instrument trained? http://www.aande.com/tv/shows/ir/schedule.html Honestly, do you think Payne Stewart could have been saved with IFR Training? I believe his pilots HAD this training. How about John Denver? Do you think IFR training would have prevented him from running out of fuel? In the poetic words of Charlie Brown, Good Grief! Call them, write them, tell them what you think of the continuous General Aviation Bashing that is going on WAY too long in this land of opportunity and freedom!
