Did I miss this somewhere else? If not, this sounds like huge news for FA:
The public will soon have greater access to on-line information about the flight paths of general aviation aircraft, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced today. The change will be effective 60 days from publication in the Federal Register.
In the future, the only way operators and owners of general aviation aircraft will be able to block displays of their flight information is by providing the FAA written certification that revealing this to the public would pose a valid security threat.
Today’s amendment makes final a proposal issued on March 1.
Apologies if this was posted already but I didn’t see it right away.
