This thread is just for discussion. Nothing will be changing next month. From a new to flying person's perspective, why not do away with VORs, DME's, etc. and just go all in with WAAS GPS? Essentially you're using electronic aids to tell you where to fly, land, etc. GPS system offers more advantages. Why not just transition? I know I've heard the argument about "what if GPS goes down"? To be honest I can't see how all the GPS satellites and WAAS ground stations would go out at the same time. I can see VOR towers going off line. It seems to be more of "you need to do it the old way because the new way isn't proven".
