“I am an airline captain for a country’s flag international carrier flying B787. I value safety to the utmost. But if it wasn’t for this hobby and the AMA, I wouldn’t be where I am today. In fact, if it weren’t for the income and prestige that I enjoy today, I’d be working in the model sailplane sector– I still may, if I can retire. I think the current is taking us down a fascistic, draconian vein; and it’s an indication of the direction we’re headed. It’s an easy freedom to take away since we represent a small group. I think big commercial interests are at work here, and our longstanding hobby and excellent record will be summarily terminated in the interest of big money.”
