For USA based pilots, John Ewing of Aviation Mentor has posted this lengthy and humorous “XNN” interview with “Mr. FAA” regarding NextGen which, in the words of Mr. FAA, “is the future of aviation and will fix everything.”
Or in the words of one commenter on the video’s Youtube page:
The ‘original intent" of next-gen is simply this- to siphon out $20 BILLION dollars from taxpayers and the industry, while adding absolutely nothing to aircraft safety. Absolutely nothing. $20 BILLION dollars.
The video interview is well worth listening to if you are not a fan of government aviation regulatory agencies.
