    Kyra....
    The gentleman you had on this afternoon....hit the nail on the head...its the FEAR that the news/media portray that hinders people from flying. As an ex-flight attendant, the last thing the pilots on commuter carriers need is more FAA regulation. As the gentleman stated maybe better overall pay and morale would help the cause. I understand you have a job as a reporter, but some of the questions you asked seemed rather shallow and until the media understands some of the scope of what the airlines are all about and what pilots actually go through.....the public could be seriously misled. Thats not to say that it was not pilot error, remember there are humans flying the plane. I have the utmost compassion for the families that lost loved ones, but you also need to be fair in your reporting.
