Blog: Plane-ly Spoken

Readers will find some interesting and informative analysis at a fairly new blog, Plane-ly Spoken.

In its first three months, this blog has produced  a long string of thoughtful Posts, on topics such as UAS (drones) policies, Malaysia 370, FAA legal opinion letters, the need for FAA Reform, etc. The blog is sponsored by McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, in McLean, VA.

The principal authors are Mark Dombroff and Mark McKinnon, and their writing makes for good reading. Their presentation is truly, plainly spoken, and promotes real aviation transparency; they routinely include links to PDF copies of FAA letters and other documents. Their analyses often include a fair amount of irreverence, which is a good thing, when dealing with agencies like FAA, with track records of oppression, opacity and arbitrariness.

Here is a copy of their ‘Welcome’ page from last March. Check it out…
