After all we could get on very happily if aviation, wireless, television and the like advanced no further than at present.... Dare I even suggest, at the risk of being lynched by some of my hearers, that the sum of human happiness would not necessarily be reduced if for ten years every physical and chemical laboratory were closed and the patient and resourceful energy in them transferred to the lost art of getting on together and finding the formula for making both ends meet in the scale of human life. Much, of course, we should lose by this universal scientific holiday ... but human happiness would not necessarily suffer.
You can't imagine a world, quite frankly, without a safe and secure aviation system. And so our job is to really focus on that, and what we need to do to keep it safe and secure.
This is a Solo Flight, but I want aviation enthusiasts and adventurers everywhere to join me in the endeavour.
I used my aviation contacts to open a travel agency. I used to book Caribbean flights.
The mastery of the turn is the story of how aviation became practical as a means of transportation. It is the story of how the world became small.
We continue to subsidize highways and aviation, but when it comes to our passenger rail system, we refuse to provide the money Amtrak needs to survive.
More than 60,000 jobs have been lost in the commercial aviation industry in the United States since 1999.
I always felt Jimmy was trapped in Hollywood. He felt it himself. He loved aviation so much and he wanted to be able to do more of that. He somehow just got stuck here.
We issued an advisory to the FAA (the Federal Aviation Administration). But they had no comment on it.
For the sake of getting this done, I would plead again to my colleagues on both sides of the aisle Let's find a way to get an agreement to do aviation security. And then find a way to do these other issues that are all so important,
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
In the early 1930s, flying from England to Australia was the longest flight in the world. It was considered extremely dangerous and hazardous, pushing pilots to the limits of mechanical skills and human endurance. Aviation was young.
The 20th Century was the century of Aviation and the century of Globalization. The next century will be the century of Space.
I went to the University of Washington as a physics and astronomy major. My other interest, of course, was aviation. I always wanted to be a pilot. And if you're going to fly airplanes, the best place to be is the Air Force.
I think our two governments have resolved, at least for the moment, the civil aviation problem. We have reached an agreement, the FAA is sending a technical team here to Venezuela.
Each and every one of the security measures we implement serves an important goal: providing safe and efficient air travel for the millions of people who rely on our aviation system every day.
