Hundreds of DC seniors face eviction. Others
need help making ends meet by obtaining tax
credits, public benefits, and veterans benefits.
And so many need to draft a will or power of
attorney. Can they count on you?
Join LCE in our work to protect, defend,
and empower DC seniors most in need.

Buttigieg said of the pilot shortage back in May. " It's affecting the whole
domestic aviation industry but disproportionately affecting smaller
regional carriers. " 9
The pilot shortage is also happening at a time when cybersecurity
vulnerabilities are likely to increase as the Next Generation Air Transportation
System (NextGen) initiative brings more automation to the sector.
According to one academic paper published in 2020,10
" [p]ilots have a
vital role in providing resiliency to the NextGen system in the event of
a system fault, system destruction, or hacking attacks from individuals,
terrorist organizations, or state actors. "
The study offered the example of Delta Air Lines in 2016, when the airline
" lost electrical power to an operations center in Atlanta, resulting in the
cancellation of 2,000 flights and a financial loss of 150 million dollars for
the company. " Of course, there are worse outcomes. Suppose a pilot is
not adequately trained and relies too much on automated systems. In
that case, we could face another tragedy akin to the crash of Air France
447 over the Atlantic Ocean in 2009, which occurred minutes after the
autopilot disconnected.
The longer the pilot shortage continues, the more consumers should
expect higher fares, fewer flights, and more cancellations in the coming
years. Modern automation is not a cure-all for this problem because it
cannot replace human pilots' ability to solve new and complex challenges.
Fortunately, relaxing the FAA's 1,500-hour rule is not our only
option. U.S. immigration can help address the pilot shortage and keep
Americans safe at the same time by adapting its guidelines to welcome
more qualified and experienced pilots from around the world.
