What is the global aviation industry doing to enable real time tracking of all aircraft, with no override, so we don't lose another one? As SLF, I find it incredible that this is beyond their technical ability. If it's political, someone need to get off their behind and make a stand.
It's happening PeetD, but like most things to do with aviation regulatory reform, it's not happening in a hurry. Autonomous Distress Tracking will be a requirement for new aircraft from 1 January 2021. Other tracking initiatives will be implemented before then.
