    If I was flying an a scheduled commercial airline flight and I thought that the pilot was NOT instrument rated, to at least a CatII level, I would disembark immediately.

    China will no doubt adapt to Beijing’s commercial flight problems. However, The Feed overlooks China’s first soft landing on moon (only 3rd. country to pull off feat – Jade Rabbit) and its technological implications. Fluctuating weather will require practical aeronautic adjustments but smog issue requires domestic industrial trade-offs; externalities impacting both GDP and domestic politics are oftentimes unanticipated consequences of growth (development).

    Obviously China needs to embark on a crash Giant Ventilator Program to direct the smog to the ADIZ.
