Well said. The FAA has enforced it's regulations on pilots for years without giving the pilots any significant recourse or constitutional rights. Until Sen. James M. Inhofe got busted for landing on a closed runway. He was successful at getting the "Pilot's Bill of Rights" passed which established sensible burdens of proof and defendant's rights for pilots charged with violating regulations. Inhofe is considered to be something of an idiot among pilots for landing on the closed runway, but he's also considered "our idiot" if you catch my meaning.
