And I just told you, approx. 3 degrees glideslope is STANDARD. Pretty much everywhere.

Go onto any of the many sites with aviation charts, and find me an RNAV chart that does not have a glideslope of approx. 3 degrees! :roll:

Guarantee you the new charts will not be appreciably different for glideslope.

Let's be factually correct, shall we? :roll:

There is no "LPV System".

LPV is simply a flavor of RNAV approach.

Therefore, it is basically a set of standard procedures and requirements.

An RNAV approach is an approach that uses GPS.

Therefore, obviously:

1) GPS avionics are required on aircraft
2) There needs to be a GPS constellation of satellites
3) There needs to be a GPS ground system to control and monitor the constellation

Now, the company of which you speak has been involved with GPS, as have MANY companies.

GPS was originally developed for DOD. But now, civilian use has VASTLY overtaken DOD use.

Now, to LPV.

LPV is simply a flavor of RNAV that requires differential GPS (namely, the Wide Area Augmentation System, or WAAS).

This provides much more accurate position fixes and reliability, making the use of GPS possible for precision approaches. It relies on a network of ground stations to broadcast error correction for a given area, improving the accuracy of the GPS position resolution.

Yes, the company of which you speak was involved with WAAS. But at this point, WAAS is in damn near every GPS unit that you can buy (with the notable exception of automotive GPS units, where it would be pointless - it would provide far more position accuracy than the bundled map databases).

So, yes, while WAAS was originally developed for aviation use, and is required for LPV approaches, at this point it's integrated into a HUGE percentage of GPS units out there, and used for MANY, MANY applications besides aviation.

While the Coast Guard has their own differential GPS system for marine use, MANY marine GPS units are also WAAS capable:

Many marine GPS units are now able to utilize WAAS differential correction data.
It is more accurate than the USCG DGPS system. Would not be surprised if most boats in Green Harbor have WAAS enabled GPS onboard.

As for the FAA:

FAA WAAS Fact Sheet July 29, 2013 wrote:
Although the WAAS was designed for aviation users, it supports a wide variety of non-aviation uses including agriculture, surveying, recreation, and surface transportation–just to name a few. The WAAS signal has been available for non-safety-of-life applications since August 2000, and numerous manufacturers have developed WAAS-enabled GPS receivers for the consumer market. Today, there are millions of non-aviation WAAS-enabled GPS receivers in use.

So yes - while WAAS was ORIGINALLY developed by the company you refer to, for the FAA, for aviation purposes, many years ago...it has now moved WAY, WAY beyond aviation into common, everyday consumer use (JUST LIKE CONVENTIONAL GPS).

Does that answer your snide insinuations? :roll:

MARSHFIELD – Retired U.S. Marine Corps Col. James Pavlik has returned nomination papers to challenge incumbent James Cantwell for his 4th Plymouth District seat in the state House of Representatives.
A union pilot for American Airlines and a Marshfield Republican, Pavlik supports repealing the automatic gas-tax increase, and says he hopes to help create jobs, lower the tax burden and restore integrity to the Legislature.
Pavlik graduated from Marquette University with a degree in engineering. He entered the U.S. Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Course Program in 1980, and later became a naval flight officer and instructor. He was deployed to Japan, Iraq and South Korea during his time in the military. He retired from the Marine Corps Reserve as a colonel in 2012.
Pavlik lives in Marshfield with his wife, Jeannine, his 13-year-old son, JJ, and his mother, Adeline. Pavlik is a member of both the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

"The Black Community" does not exist. The collection of black people in America is the farthest thing from a community. The baiters and racist leaders want to the "black community" to shirk any and all responsibilities. They do disservice to the black people.

I'd prefer that he play at one of the courses around DC. Maybe even one at a military base. Instead his rounds of golf end up costing a million dollars. He's going to fly back to DC this weekend, and that will end up costing a million dollars as well. Maybe he shouldn't have gone on this vacation if he needed to be in DC. This is a sign of someone who is grossly out of touch.


Sorry, Al, but you clearly have a problem with presidential vacations only when it is a Democratic president who is taking them. Barack Obama is a bona fide workaholic when compared to both GWB and RWR.

Mark -- Not even a hard-core partisan like you believes what you wrote. You follow politics closely enough to know perfectly well that Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton both run circles around their GOP counterparts when it comes to continuing to engage in public service after leaving the Oval Office.

Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, "Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences." Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences.
