Re: [lifewithoutanet] Abbie Mashaal for National Director
I think we need to change the way we work with the FAA
Yea because clearly Randy Ottinger is doing a piss poor job and fucking everything up...... Right? Please enlighten us all with how you think we need to change how we work with the FAA and just what is your background in regards to dealing with high levels of the FAA in Washington DC.
and change the way the FAA treats parachuting,
And just how is the FAA treating parachuting in IYHO?
Because frankly we have a lot freedom and little restriction on us as it is now, the USPA is well respected on the hill mainly due to the work of a few if not one person who's job it is to work with the FAA on a daily basis and this person has done a hell of a lot to keep major restrictions off our backs post 9-11. I know for a fact this person is invited to very high level meetings that could change skydiving as we know it had he not been there to represent us.
If we're cow-towing to and only working within the existing system--while also focusing on seemingly-related non-parachute activities--we're doing it wrong. -C.
You don't have clue what is going on.
