Aero-TV: FAA Forecast Conference -- SecTrans' Mary Peter's Address (#2 of 2)

DoT's Peters Tries To Drum Up Support (Part Two)

The 33rd Annual FAA Aviation Forecast Conference finished up a few days ago... and provided "an opportunity for senior leaders from across the aviation community to look forward and share their views on the future of the aviation industry."

As the theme of this year's conference suggests, congestion and environmental issues pose two of the greatest challenges to the future health of aviation. Prominent industry and government leaders discussed the impacts of these issues and possible solutions for consumers and operators, as well as financial challenges and future market opportunities.

SecTrans Peters started her remarks like those of FAA's Sturgell, with a defense of the seemingly indefensible, by stating that, "Before I begin my remarks on the forecast, I want to address media reports of serious allegations that FAA inspectors knew about safety lapses and yet allowed them to continue. These stories raise questions about the safety of our aviation system. Let me start by saying that the best way to measure the effectiveness of any safety system is to closely examine the data you have available. And the data we have today tells us that commercial aviation is safer than it has ever been before. Indeed, the most recent data from the National Transportation Safety Board showing that U.S. airlines has point one major accidents for every million hours flown confirms that fact..."

Aero-TV is pleased to present the entire speech, in two parts, unedited for your perusal. This gives you the chance to do what so few could do... judge the entire presentation for yourself. Herewith... 

Aero-TV Presents The Secretary Of Transportation, Mary Peters, At The FAA Forecast Conference (Part Two of Two)

About Aero-TV: It's DEFINITELY Show Time!!!!

OK, folks, here we go... we are NOW initiating the first feature programming series for Aero-TV... we're going to take it slow, but we're also going to try and be steady about this. DO UNDERSTAND that this is the most complex media program we've ever undertaken and what you're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg... but from here on out, we will be doing our best to educate, inform, and entertain YOU about all aspects of the exciting worlds of aviation and aerospace. 

If you've been an observer of the media and associated media industries over the last few years, it's not hard to mistake the fact that a massive revolution is taking place. Old sources for news and information are falling by the wayside, having to change their modus operandi or risk obsolescence (or extinction). Electronic media and print media are both under the assault of progress, and the online world has been a cornerstone for revolutionary change.

We've been ready to go for a while, but to be honest, there's so much more to this program than we've alluded to, and so we've been building and planning a massive new organization within ANN. That said, we're hiring talented new people as fast as we can find them (a far more difficult task than we had imagined -- REALLY good people are hard to find), and we're brainstorming at speeds that would make a deorbiting Space Shuttle feel like a slug. Suffice it to say that we wanted to do this right, rather than right-now, and that the development of this program has been the most carefully pursued undertaking we've ever undertaken. 

E-I-C Note: The complete feature shown above is embedded in this story, with most of the slick and useful functionality otherwise available on the main Aero-TV site (which will be upgraded aggressively over the next few weeks). The ability to embed a video on another web page is but one of the hundreds of amazing little features that we've worked hard on, for many months now, to implement in different phases of the initial release of Aero-TV. It is, BY NO MEANS, the only way to enjoy unaltered Aero-TV programming on other parts of the web... as we have extensive plans for future functionality, but this feature allows those with an interest in a specific Aero-TV News or Feature program to embed it on a different web site, though we must note that we reserve the right to forbid such use for those sites or purposes that we do not feel fit in with the proper mission of the Aero-News Network, Inc.  

Webmasters or Administrators of well-trafficked aviation or aerospace related sites, are welcome to contact the Publisher to start conversations on how they may be able to leverage some of the immense power of Aero-TV programming for their sites and constituency by clicking the I Want Aero-TV For MY Website! link.
