You may now proceed to gate 7 for your pat down and rapid groin grope please refrain from pushing !
Attention Attention ...
Will the President Please pick up Mr Biden at the information desk he has soiled himself Hazmat has been notified !
Is landing school a requirement??
Prolly depends on how they plan on landing !
We’ve lost our collective minds.
The big problem is using jets as missiles. If a bad guy wants to fly a Cessna into a building, he’s welcome to and may even take out a few people there. Of course that same person could drive a car or, especially a truck, into a crowd of people and take out a lot more people.
I know people here are not exactly TSA fans, but it is important to distinguish the real threats.

OK, but which is more likely to appear on page one in newspapers around the world?

Sing along kiddies!

Valid point, but does anyone SERIOUSLY think that people have to come to first-world countries to learn how to fly a Cessna. 2 weeks in Pakistan is probably enough.
Probably. But why go to Pakistan when you live in West Philly and can get a government grant?
now that’s a shot that made me do a triple take....
Yes you have. And the problem was creating a no-fly list that people could be put on at the whim of a Government Commissar for reasons known only to him.
Because people on that list have certain inalienable rights, they can still do things. The only way you can correct that is MOAH GOVERNMENT!
Yeah, saw this on the news last night. Amazing, huh.
Or rather than Sarin, visualize that plane spraying kerosene over a crowd in a football stadium, followed by a road flare.
We keep this up we both be headin for flight school. Or the gulag...
