I guess most folks here are airline types, but everybody starts in general aviation. I have earned a living in "general aviation" for over 30 years, but never even wanted to work for the airlines.

General Aviation had nothing whatsoever to do with the events of 9/11, but we have been treated badly since. TFRs are everywhere and people are prosecuted for violating them. Flight schools have lost students to Australia and other places. Gates and fences up at all sorts of small airports.

This Sunday no GA aircraft will be allowed into the airspace near Miami and FLL, unless of course one is on an IFR flight plan, and there may be restrictions there too.

I resent it, and wonder if others do too?

I know it really impacted FRG (30 west of JFK) in the days/months after 9/11. Phil Poyner of Nassau Flyers almost went bankrupt due to the TFR's. Thank goodness he is also an aviation attorney. From what i understand, he was instrumental in getting alot of the TFR's lifted in conjuction with AOPA.

Its been a while since i flown GA.. .but im looking forward to getting back in the air real soon.
