A View From the Edge

Aviation sneaks opportunities

Nothing is more important to airlines than landing and terminal slots. Each airport only has so many, each airport has a tight schedule, every airspace over towns and cities have noise and access restrictions. When COVID hit (along with the Boeing 737 Max being grounded), many airports went under used and went looking for new business.

Internet theft and hacking

Imagine your competitor is a farmer with tractors. No doubt he has a diesel tank to refill from. Now, if you wanted to steal from him, you could, in the dead of night, go and siphon gallons of diesel fuel from his tank. Straightforward theft. And unless he’s a dunce, he’ll know pretty soon gallons were missing.

Electricity: At what cost?

Don’t get me wrong, I am an environmentalist and I want us to move from carbon fuels as much as possible to electricity. Take a car, for example, a normal family car uses 10-plus barrels of oil a year to run. The same car with batteries only uses 1.2 barrels of the equivalent of oil (gas, coal or oil burned in generating plants).
