Being a pilot and weather nerd, I like the simple info to see what is going on and what might affect my flight(s) and if I might possibly miss a connection. Show the US/Canada Map with current radar, flash to weather forecasts for major cities that airlines travels to, and back to the map every minute or so.

It used to be that almost the only people on this forum were pilots, ranging from PPL up to ATP, with a shared love of aviation, and the discussion was mostly aviation related. Now, it seems that an overwhelming number of respondents are non-aviators, who are simply looking for yet ANOTHER online forum to troll and spout their ignorance. It's sad.

Mike, you clearly weren't implying that you use the terminal monitors to do your actual flight planning. I think all of those who actually ARE pilots can attest that even when we're just riding along as passengers, you can't completely put the pilot mindset to rest. And many of us crave having that SA about what is going on and how our flight(s) might be affected. I'm right there with you... I would find that way more informative than the drivel that spews out of the CNN monitors.

I stumbled onto this site years ago and kept visiting so I could get aviation industry news from people in the industry and my comments were generally asking questions from those people. Lately I see too much political BS that could be left on other social media but sadly everyone just wants to tear down whatever is left of the internet that isn't politics. I miss the days when it was mostly people from the industry and I could get good information from this site.

I was forced to sign up for Flightaware when my husband and son flew to Europe. It was the only way I could see the flight path of the plane they were on. I just never unsubscribed afterwards as occasionally there is an article that catches my interest.

True. But commercial aviation will not be there unless there were passengers. Unless you fly to go on cargo aicraft.

I cannot help you dislike the fact that I was born on a SAC bomber base where there were B-52s stationed during the early part of The Cold War. I also cannot help you dislike the fact that I lived on or near military bases my entire life or that I was aircrew while in the Marines on Phrogs. Aviation has been in my blood from my first breath. I still have an interest in aviation, even if I do not get into the air as much as I would like.

This is the first time I've replied to a comment on this site. I'm not a pilot, just someone who has been interested in aviation and aircraft since I built my first plastic models as a boy long ago and hung them by thread from the ceiling of my room. I was a radio and datalink tech in the Air National Guard working on F-102s and F-100s. Sorry, if us non-pilots commenting on this website offend you.

That's not what I'm saying at all. And, I addressed it in more detail in a later post a bit further down.

I had said, "Those directly involved in engineering and construction with a love of planes certainly count." I'm pretty sure you would fall into that category in some fashion though my description wasn't that broad.

I first learned to fly while an avionics tech working on the S-3 War Hoover. But my love started way back at ten when I got into building balsa wood models.

Unfortunately, there seems to be an ever-increasing number here who have no relationship to aviation, let alone flying an aircraft.

My dad worked for Boeing and my mom was a flight attendant for United. I grew up in and on airplanes. I have videos and pictures of me and my brother farting around with the 737-300 test plane. I was on the delivery flight for the first 737-300 to Piedmont.

Those directly involved in engineering and construction with a love of planes certainly count.

But, I do not see those characteristics in so many of the newer names appearing based on their comments. I'm betting some appear as nothing more than trolls.

Based on my observation over forty years around aviation, including military, a good 75-80% of pilots and others in the industry are conservatives. For those airmen with substantial additions to their ticket they have a lot to protect. And if it's threatened by a government agency that has a way to keep you on the conservative side.
BluSTi
James Willich 2
Although anecdotal, your observations are astute. My experience in the industry has similar observations.

I'm extremely late in getting the aviation bug. If I had put the alcohol and the other demons down as a teenager, I would probably had close to 30 years under my belt by now. Wasn't even on my radar in those days. Dad was on the Constellation on its maiden voyage, so he'd bring me to air shows as a kid ... but it just never registered as something I could do. If I were richer, I'd have the license and something fixed or rotary wing to play with. I've got a paramotor, so I can still satisfy the itch - just can't go anywhere to quickly, or take anyone with me, or fly when raining ... or dark .. but I can fly. :) Just wish I had figured all this out 30 years ago!

Ray, I apologize. I would MOST CERTAINLY include your likes amongst the aviation fraternity. Typical pilot response on my part, thinking the world revolves around us! I should have said something more to the effect of "pilots, professionals in the aviation industry, or actual aviation enthusiasts..." Unfortunately now a lot of people here think that because they have once RIDDEN on an airplane, that somehow makes them experts on all things aviation.

Mike, not a pilot but I've been here since 2013 feeding FA data first from Planeplotter then piaware. FA introduced the Flightfeeder to add reporting sites. Someone opened the box, discovered it had a raspberry pi, and asked if FA would release the software.
That added tens of thousands of users providing data. My first feeder is 304, my latest 71K+.
That brought a lot more people, and some are trolls.

Canadian weather is predictable because we only have four seasons...cold, really cold, not quite as cold and massive swarms of blood sucking mosquitoes and black flies. None of those really affect flying except the visibility in bug season.

My doctor's office had a TV blaring Fox News once. I got up and changed the channel. A few people actually thanked me. My concern is that airports will fill the void on those screens with Fox News, or some equally obnoxious variant. I don't want to be bombarded with fake news while waiting for my next plane. If I want toxic crap like that, I'll hang out in the men's room, smelling other peoples feces.

I'm all in favor of showing videos of the destinations the airport services, maps of services available from that point, and gate change announcements. Be useful, and happy...
Quirkyfrog
Robert Cowling 3
The screens won't go away. I am concerned at what they choose to fill them with now that CNN is gone.

I have memories of getting my first reports of some major news on the TV's in airports.

Earthquakes in Mexico, tidal wave in Hawaii, Fukashima, etc, and now? Do I need more fashion news?

One airport I used to fly through had a screen at every arrival/departure kiosk that showed live nationwide radar. So many times it accurately predicted a delayed flight, or connection. Now, that screen is gone as of the last time I was flying through there. Pilots used to stop and look at those screens too. It was a quick and dirty way to get a look at current conditions. That's all it was...

I often travel in the US and seeing the political mess over there confirms why it's best to buyout US Corporation and bring their IP back home.

Finally, the king of fake news will be removed from the airport terminals. Good riddance.

Thank goodness and good riddance to the Communist News Network. They used to be so fair and objective. Whatever happened?

Would like to see NewsMax on those screens for the next 20 years for some balance.

IMO it was only good during the O.J. Simpson trial, because people would all gather around one of the TV locations and I could walk from gate to gate or shops and so forth quite freely. No clips or bumps by tunnel vision passengers that only see their gate number sign ahead!

As an aside, the last time I was in the Buenos Aires metro, perhaps 10 years ago, there were huge fans and TV screens on the platforms. I understood the need for the fans - it was hot in the tunnel - but the TV's were incomprehensible.

That is good news, in most airports there is rarely enough room to find a seat anywhere to watch it anyway.

No more news channels of any kind. Maybe replace them with rotating beautiful pictures of the world, with some low volume music. such as on "the frame channel" in Canada. and have a few rotating ads of no longer than 10 seconds

Thanks for this information, but, I think I will still listen to music while waiting at the gate as with all the other noise, it can get too loud as well.

Who else had a noisy video ad pop up within the first 30 second of opening this article??
Tell me about noise pollution again!!!!!
You guys dropped the ball on this one.
Better yet is I have no clue what the ad was selling. Hahaha!

Late joining this census of users. I joined FlightAware to help the FAA identify a private helicopter that was performing hammerheads at 800 ft above a densely populated urban area. I have never held a license, have had exploratory prestudent flights in rotor and fixed but don't have the $2000 a month to keep up and develop my skills further once licensed. I do RC hobby flying and I am interested in GA safety and understanding what it takes to avoid falling out of the sky, UAV or manned. I'm working my way through the FAA helicopter pilot training guide. I try not to criticize or offer expert opinions just because I watch YouTube. If you want an all pilots forum, then ask Flight Aware to request and confirm current or previous licensing in order to comment or charge a fee equal to the value you find in excluding drivers and pedestrian from a pilot forum. You can downvote comments, too. Even mine. This forum seems to have a lot more user feedback to squash squalks than most others. I'm just here to learn. Over.

All of the anti CNN comments sound like the language of all of the other Cretinous Insurrectionist Gargoyles. Yes the airport terminals have become much like what the Greyhound Bus Terminals used to be, so sad.

Did anyone read the article? It was against the TVs, not CNN. Maybe all these radical comments are just Russian Bots left over from the 2016 election still trying to screw with our minds. This deserves only an amen to the quiet which we will have until they figure out how to start the TVs up again.

I would enjoy the quiet! Maybe it would help hear the Terminal annocements! Talking over each other, volume to high, or low! I prefer to hear the Reverse Thrusters and full power takeoffs than any other noise!
Just sayin!

CNN has a horrible reputation for Fake News. Why anyone would watch it I do not know:

You clearly do not understand what Cancel Culture is. You also clearly don't let that keep you from spouting off with your hair on fire. Thanks for the chuckle.

It's not about cancelling or not cancelling DJ. It's about being held hostage by a monopoly. In soviet Russia all apartments had a hardwired radio box. Everybody was forced to hear the same state approved news.

They cancelled themselves. Was not someone telling others how to think as the cancel culture does. You are losing it.

It was done by their own executives based on financial issues. It was not the same as several other companies run by liberals conspiring to destroy a conservative company.

Educate yourself, fool.

The fact that you come on here using a slur against the handicapped says a lot more about you than the people watching Newsmax.
