The sixties were great. I wasn’t old enough to fly then, but several of the aircraft I flew were of that vintage—the UH-1, OH-58, C-130 and the B727.

In my last Public Service column (“Orphan Treatment,” January 2012, page 64), I wrote about the NTSB Public Aircraft Safety meeting on December 1 in Washington, D.C. To recap, this meeting was held to discuss the proposed efforts by some that may lead to the elimination of public aircraft operations.

When I was 19 years old I knew everything. After all, I had a private pilot license. Looking at life from the perspective of unchastened youth, I can recall an unflinching belief that all things were imminently achievable. The possibility of penalties for failure did not show up for me at the time on any imaginable radar screen. Having risen above all apparent peers with a flying hobby beginning in high...
