Hey all. I always hear things on TLC and the Discovery Channel that someday we will all have our own personal aircraft in every garage and all live in fly-in communities eliminating the need for airline travel. I just wanted your opinions. Is this something that you would like to see or not. The question came to mind this evening while sitting through the lectures at "The Driver Safety Program." (My punishment for speeding instead of having to pay the fine) We were watching movies and having discussions on all aspects about driving safety and how to be a safe driver. Some topics brought up were: DUI's, not wearing seatbelts, road-rage etc. Then I started thinking about this whole personal aircraft thing. Of course I know that GA aircraft are flying all over, but everyone having their own small private jet. Would things that are all to prevalent in today's driving begin to appear and be a common thing in aviation? Things like FUI's (flying under the influence), and air-rage. I don't know, I see too many idiots on the road the way it is. I would hate to have to share the sky with them. Actually, unfortunately even when I'm flying nowadays I run into a lot of idiots that I'd prefer not to share the sky with. So imagine if aircraft in households were our main form of transportation. God, I can't even imagine that. Pulling up to the curb in my ultra-quite and ultra-fuel efficient personal jet to pick up my teenage son or daughter from flyers-ed.
I look foreword to hearing your thoughts.
