Airborne 08.20.14: Unstable FAA Software, Pilots Can't Share, Hurricane Hunters

The Department of Transportation Inspector General has issued a memo to the FAA Administrator pointing out weaknesses in the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) being deployed at 11 major airports around the country. The concept seems fairly simple. Private pilots would offer extra seats in their airplanes through the AirPooler app and website, and the passengers would help offset some of the expenses of making the trip.

Numbers were so significant that KidVenture volunteers ran out of project materials and had to dip into next year’s materials to keep things running. The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) is less than enthusiastic about the FAA's changes in repair station regulations under 14 CFR part 145 announced last Tuesday. All this... and MORE in today's episode
