Subject: Question To FAA About National Press Club

Dear colleagues,

I have just sent official media question to FAA contact form of
William J. Hughes Technical Center and Mike Monroney
Aeronautical Center that is located here;


If I receive the answer I will let you know.

The complete text of my question in the text below;

This is a media related question for Laura J. Brown, FAA Spokesperson.

Please forward this message to her directly.

From: Giuliano Marinkovic, Croatian National Television HTV, TV
show: On The Edge Of Science

Dear FAA Spokesperson, Laura J. Brown.

At November 12th 2007. in National Press Club, the international
conference was held about air safety issues and implication
connected with the unidentified aerial phenomena. The speakers
were military and civilian experts and pilots from 7 countries.

In connection with this event, CNN has aired the segment inside
the Anderson Cooper Show at 12th of November 10pm EST.

Transcript of the show is available here;


During the segment, guest James McGaha stated;

Start of quote:

But I should say, when we talk about pilots, there's this
incredible misidentification idea about pilots being trained
observers. Pilots are not trained observers; they're trained to
fly airplanes. They are some of the worst people at identifying
objects in the sky that aren't other airplanes. They're trained
to react quickly in an airplane, which very often makes them to
react to wrong stimuli.

End of quote

In the connection of those events we are preparing the TV show
that will reflect recent developments about the subjects of air
safety and unidentified aerial phenomena. In the sense of our TV
show and in the sense of John McGaha's statements we would like
to adress you the questions of that point.

Our questions are;

What is the official position of FAA towards the level of
compentence, qualifications and expertise of active pilots? Are
pilots specificaly trained to be able to deal with the
situations in the air enviroment besides the basic flying of the
airplane ?

By your definition, are pilots adequately trained as observers
during their missions in the air enviroment? Is there any
distinction in the level of compentence and quality of
observations in the air enviroment between the trained pilot and
ordinary civilian person without any flight experience?

Please send your answers at my email.

Best regards from Croatian National Television
