Addressing the media's unreasonable fear of flying
from By Ryan Clark
USA Today recently ran a three-part series of articles that delved into the issue of general aviation safety. The author, Thomas Frank, claimed that general aviation is inherently dangerous and unsafe. Shortly thereafter, the general aviation community responded in fury, denouncing the article as sensationalism at best, and all-out fiction at worst. In the end, the incident only served to prove how the aviation community — whether pilot, manufacturer or mechanic — needs to unify and address the media's long-standing and unnecessary aviation phobia.
