The U.S. Navy scuttled a planned training exercise that involved jamming
GPS signals around the China Lake Naval Weapons Station.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, which mostly represents small
aviators, had asked the Navy to release more information regarding its
plans to shut down GPS signals over a 400-plus mile radius around China
Lake on six different June days, “so that civilian pilots can understand
the possible impact on their activities and plan their flights accordingly.”
Evidently, rather than reveal secrets, the Navy thought it best to simply
cancel the exercise and preserve goodwill in the community.
The exercise, which the FAA would have had to approve, was designed to
teach pilots to navigate without GPS assistance.
Federal Traffic Ticket
Trying to find you way is also a hazard for drivers, because they might
go the wrong way down a one-way street or miss a traffic control device
while driving. Friendly MPs are more than willing to issue traffic tickets
in these situations.
A federal judge in Bakersfield hears all these matters about eight or twelve
times a year, so it is almost impossible to get the date rescheduled for
a convenient time, and defendants must appear unless they are represented
by attorneys. Traffic school is often
unavailable in federal cases, and tickets may also affect your base privileges.
Many attorneys are not licensed to practice in federal court, and almost
none of them handle traffic tickets. But a lawyer that routinely handles
these matters can negotiate a deal with federal prosecutors that keeps
more money in your pocket and more time in your day.
