Low Flying Aircraft and Technology – Today’s Commentary by a Local Professor at MTSU

COMMENTARY: Low-flying aircraft, technology and the FAA. Along with today’s commentary, here’s MTSU professor Larry Burriss…

Verbatim: “We have talked a little here about the dangers of technology, the Internet and computers. Lost privacy, stolen data and fake news.

But last week we heard about a case in another state where at least one person benefited from all these problems and concerns. It’s a cautionary tale of what all these technological marvels can and cannot do for us.

Apparently a homeowner has filed a complaint with the Federal Aviation Administration about a private pilot who buzzed their home at less than 300 feet. The concerned citizen even had a video of the red and white plane flying low over the local airport, so it was unclear.

The FAA was able to find the pilot who was deemed to have been offended who faces the loss of his license and the possibility of losing his job for flying dangerously over a building and operating an aircraft in a careless and reckless manner.

Include new and old technologies.

First, the aircraft in question has new technology that automatically monitors and transmits aircraft performance and flight data.

Because these reports are readily available on the Internet, some people complain about the possibility of some poor monitoring.

But by matching the flight data with Google Maps technology, the accused pilot was able to show that he had indeed flown over the corresponding building, but at 700 meters and for about three hours. here after the video of another and shocking plane. Additionally, the data shows that the pilot did not arrive at the airport he was supposed to.

And what about the shocking red and white plane video? Well, a careful examination of the picture showed that the lower plane had two seats and the non-transgressive plane had a single seat.

It is also interesting that for some reason the FAA investigators chose to ignore the relevant data, which was then transferred, in order to “get” the innocent pilot. And he would have succeeded, except for all the new technologies, which are often demeaning.

We often say here that the problem is not the technology but the people who use it. But sometimes the good guys get one. – I’m Larry Burriss.”
