Congressman Issa: How Much Is Enough?

California Republican Wonders If Washington Is Really Threatened By GA

Just how much regulation is needed to protect the airspace around Washington, DC, from the minute threat posed by an airplane that's smaller than a pickup truck? Hasn't the reaction begun to outweigh the risk?

Those are questions on the minds of GA pilots everywhere — and they're issues raised by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA, above) at Thursday's hearing before the House Committee on Government Reform.

In his opening statement, Rep. Issa, an AOPA member, pilot, and strong GA supporter, urged his fellow lawmakers to remember the rich tradition and vital security contributions of GA in the United States.

Issa pointed out that general aviation, recently vilified as a threat to national security, has been the training ground for the pilots who have defended the United States in every foreign war since the beginning of powered flight.

Later in the hearing he asked just how much regulation is enough, considering the small threat posed by light GA aircraft.
