It mentioned in the FAR/AIM that the 'US plans to terminate LORAN-Corporations on December 31, 2000'; does that mean that the system will be not available anymore after this year? I realize that the LORAN is very much out-dated, but it still works fairly well (if you can find an airplane with such equipment on board!!!) with the few exceptions of some stations being out of service.
Is the usage of GPS equipment in such an advanced stage already that we have to think about eliminating older methods? And what is next? NDB stations? Maybe VORs???
Probably not for a while...
Thanks for your input!
