Default Bad pilots, bad maintenance ruining general aviation

I see on the CNN Web page not one but two reports of GA plane crashes.
General Aviation isn't inherently dangerous, so the large number of crashes
can only mean that there are lots of bad pilots and poorly-maintained aircraft
out there. And the accidents that occur as a result are ruining the
reputation of GA in the eyes of the public.

If you must fly, make sure you know what you are doing, and don't take stupid
risks. And make sure that the aircraft you're flying is in flyable (safe)
condition. Otherwise there eventually won't be any general aviation any more.

The bait is set. Now, the fish will begin to jump.

Boyer is responsible for the decline in GA, and he supports a large
increase in the Avgas tax. When he gets it, he will proclaim victory
to the AOPA membership.

For someone who insists that facts must be backed up with verifiable
proof, you seem awfully willing to accept a newspaper report of a crash
as the final word as to why something happened and who's fault it was.
Please try to be a little bit more consistent in your shrill pronouncements.

As long as it was a crash, it's overwhelmingly probable that it was caused by
pilot error or inadequate maintenance.

Since the only thing you'll ever crash is your Microsoft OS, your opinion
matters little.

Could be worse, you could be flying, or trying to.

Wow, thanks for that sobering piece of advice. And here I was, just about
to go out and take some stupid risks without knowing what I was doing in an
airplane that wasn't in flyable (safe) condition. I'm sure glad you stopped
me. I'd hate to be the reason that GA went away.

"The large number of crashes." LOL!
