Those ERAM chickens are coming home to roost. Once again, note that this was “thrown out” on “trash day”.
FAA Remains Quiet on Eram Budget Overruns, Delays
”Yet amid all the FAA exultation these days about NextGen at ATC conferences and in news releases and public statements by agency officials, Eram scarcely gets a mention. If the FAA were a sitcom, Eram would play the slightly crazy Uncle Edgar who gets hustled off to his room just before guests arrive, to be let out only after they’ve left.
That’s because Eram has become a serious embarrassment for the agency and, presumably, for Lockheed Martin, its builder.”
I know better than to count my chickens before they hatch, but I’ve noticed that ERAM has laid more than one egg. And judging from this story, I’m not the only “outsider” that has noticed. Something might hatch soon. Just sayin’...
