Just like all of us.. be patient.. flying will return.. people will want to get away asap.. others will return to work, then plan extended vacations.. cabin fever has set in, we got a few more months to go..
we all have to wait until this is over then we can get back in the air.that day will come i can hardly wait for that day now
No need to wait. You can go flying now. Unless some local/state government entity has tried to close your local airport. But, in general, all airports are open and the ATC is functioning.
And unless the airlines keep cancelling flights.
I have a FlightAware ADSB receiver at my house in Central Florida. The range of my antenna setup is a radius of about 230nm. My usual 24hour tally of flights is between 3,800 to 4,200. On March 13, I tracked more than 4,000 flights. On April 1 the count was Less than 1,800. By the way, Sun’N Fun 2020 has been cancelled, so my April total will be far below the usual.
Yes, private aircraft can still fly. Private aircraft are playing an important role in delivering much needed medical supplies. The question is, is the pilot allowed in their state/city allowed to leave home and go to the airport.
