  Broadcast in Current Events

Call in to speak with the host

(718) 664-6303

JJ Greenway is a former chief pilot for AOPA, former President of Avemco, and now a Capitol Hill advisor on Aviation Matters. Susan Loricchio private pilot, is the Vice President NJ for Government Affairs, Air Force Association.

Their interview will focus on the recent federal budget-cuts directed towards our Air Traffic Control system. Since the recording of this interview, these budget-cuts have been repealed as of April 27. However, major economic and military damages have already been caused.  

Damage from sequestration to the Air Force's readiness was articulated by Michael Donley on the 23rd of April by saying, “[It] will extend into Fiscal '14 even if sequestration is undone before the end of this fiscal year.” Donley also told defense reporters in Washington, D.C., “standing down pilots and weapon-system operators due to slashed flying and training hours means it will take anywhere from three to six months into Fiscal 2014 to get proficiency levels back up to combat mission-ready status.”

This is probably the most important topic we have covered yet, and the information discussed here will affect all Americans.
