Bob Clifford Speaks to Associated Press about Missing Jet Prompting Changes in Aviation System

Robert A. Clifford, senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, was quoted by Associated Press reporter Scott Mayerowitz in a story that appeared March 16, 2014, entitled, “Will Missing Jet Prompt Change in Aviation System?” AP wrote, “Numerous experts have said it is time to update tracking abilities and use satellite links to provide real-time feeds on the operation of planes and conversations within the cockpit.” Clifford told AP, though, “If such information were to be streamed live, there would be major concerns about privacy. ‘Once it’s broadcast, the data from a plane would essentially be considered public access material – something that aircraft manufacturers, pilot unions, operators and even accident investigators don’t want,’ Clifford said.” The reporter also raised the issue of who would receive and control that data and what would be done with it.
