Thumbs up FAA

Following the mid air in Nw York that claimed eight lives, the FAA has issued new rule for the Hudson corridor. I can imagine many aviation authorities simply banning GA from the area, imposing positive control at all altitudes or mandating TCAS or similar. I'm glad to say that with the help of the GA community, the FAA (not an Authority but an Administration, an important distinction) has issued new rules that retains airpace access for all users. See here for more.
