First of all: Roost-Air will remain open for business during this trying time!
But I am still very disappointed that our government can’t come to some kind of agreement. As aviation history buff it was especially disappointing that after 55 years of NASA and all those massive accomplishments in space flight, nobody was around to even light a birthday candle due to the government shutting down and everybody getting furloughed. Equally sad is the last minute cancellation of the “Miramar Airshow”. We used to look at this show as one of the key events on the West Coast.
But worse, a particularly scary situation in my mind is what the government calls “essential”. Apparently FDA food inspectors and aviation and NTSB safety people are not in that group.
No wonder we just saw a low budget sushi place open right next-door to Roost-Air!
And yet, my federal taxes got promptly deducted from my last paycheck, even though “the service” has been cut. I wonder how our aviation magazines would feel if we kept charging them without sending them new strips …
