#2

Every once in a while they will traverse quite aways out ive had them come over me westbound and go all the way to Arkansas before they turn and head back inbound to Savannah.


#3

How many staff-hours/taxpayer dollars went into managing the air traffic contol over this flight?


#4

Thats why they are there. So those of us that want to deplete the worlds supply of jet fuel can do so when we want and where we want.


#5

Isn’t the purpose of air traffic control to control air traffic, whether it’s a local flight or a long distance flight?

I don’t see anything wrong with this. Grumman pays taxes both in general and specifically for air traffic control. They are entitled to use what they pay for.


#6

Probably the same amount of money that it would take to oversee a single engine plane like I fly.

The size of the blip is the same to ATC whether it’s a Cub or a 747.

Assuming you leave your residence for work, pleasure, treatment, etc… I wonder how many staff-hours/taxpayer dollars go into the transportation systems you utilize. :unamused:


#8

At FL 430 450 and 470, ATC had a pretty easy time with this one I would guess.


#9

Can anyone remember / have a link to the Gulfstream flight that spelled out " G " " V " ? It was done in the midwest six months ago or so.
