Armed pilots and dead terrorists

Posted: 11.18.09 01:43 AM

The FFDO (Federal Flight Deck Officer) program was implemented by the Bush Administration working with law enforcement, airline management and pilot unions. Pilots with guns were a way to augment the Federal Air Marshall Service which was already in place and quickly expanded. Recent rumors indicate that the Obama administration will attempt to de fund the FFDO program. I think it would be a huge loss to security and a big mistake.
