I am all for it ! You can count on me in supporting this issue.

It is difficult to imagine - however, that extremelly conservative Santa Barbara
will go for an aerobatic practice area right over the class C airport. I will try
anyway, it is a dream of mine. Wheather it is class  X or Y airspace it is still
the safest place to do aerobatics over the airport and has the following
advantages:

- the safest place to be at an airport,  is right above - see LAX VFR route.
- fewer people would fly off, disturbing close-by residential aereas
- fewer people would be doing low level aerobatics - it is safer and easyer to
impress friends and family right at the airport while controllers, other aircraft
owners, and civilians can wittness possible rule violations.
- it costs less to get to the practice area - therefore we burn less fuel and
polute less - an advantage for our pocket books as well as for the environment.
- and finally and most importantly we have a runway underneeth in case of an
emergency - which is a safety issue. (Today I have no place to land where I
practice, which could make a simple engine failure another "Preliminary" or
"Final")

Additionally let me add, that many other countries around the world allow
aerobatics over an airport only. - Might there  be a reason ?

Our FARs are written with blood. So is theirs. Would it not be a good idea to
avoid rewriting it with our blood ?

Please add any ideas that supports having boxes over airports. It would add
safety, convenience, time, economy and have environmental advantages.


Lets lobby for it !
