Default Again!

The FAA has just informed us that northern NJ will once again be blessed with the weekend golfing presence of President Trump. Lucky us. This means that for the last eight weekends, we have had ONE weekend when we were allowed to fly. Last year Trump's favored golf club in Florida opened for the season on Halloween. If that pattern holds, we've got two more whole months of this. I honestly don't see how the glider FBOs (two of them in the restricted zone) can survive. And there are a lot more powered flight training and rental operations. 34 airports are affected by the TFRs. Leaving out a few places like Newark, Laguardia, and JFK, that still leaves a lot of businesses hurting bigly.
