Reasonably accurate, reasonably on point, few diversions into hysteria. 

I think the 'new' definition of incursions is perhaps behind the boost in incursion stats mentioned with concerns by the author.

My post is more regarding air to air issues, but as a pilot who flies just about every day in the same types of mission profiles CAP usually flies, Im continually amazed at how many airplanes I encounter at or below 500' while Im flying the helicopter.  Mostly down the coast, or out in the boonies.  Nobody is doing anything wrong.  Just pilots out flying.  But it happens enough that Im always watching.

Not really, it was for a commercial. But so close!
