I just watched you on the early show and my heart and prayers go out to all of you. Did you know that there are more requirements to be a hairstylist than to fly a plane? 1600 hours in California just to style hair! You keep fighting and dont get weary the prayers of rhe people and the power of God who is Love eternal is on your side!

Thinking of Terry and Scott Maurer, along with Kevin Kuwik as they walk in honor of our beloved friend Lorin. Hopefully you will continue to bring awareness to the importance of aviation safety.

Our prayers are with you. We find it impossible to get a pilots license after only 250 hours...when it takes 1600 hours of training to get a cosmetology license! May your cause be realized, so that we can all live in a safer world. Amen.

Each and every one of you has more strength than I could ever hope to have. I applaud your ability to fight for what you believe in in the face of such tragedy, and you are in my thoughts and prayers, most especially today.

First, let me say that I am sorry to hear that anyone has to go through what you are going through. It is a tragedy. I however disagree with much of the focus that America puts on tragedies today. No matter what happens today, if an airline is involved, America immediately blames the airline. Take 911 - while tragic, how exactly is it that we come to blame the airline (among others) instead of blaming the horrible individuals that made the plan and carried through with it. Now in reviewing the information from one of the Buffalo News articles, it says, But pilots say its a "teaching to the test" structure that offers few surprises to test for uncommon, though potentially lethal, occurrences. "It never happens in a check ride where you go into ice and then go slow and stall," a regional pilot said. "They will ask you to stall, but it is real basic and in perfect weather. They dont add the stress or other variables." How exactly do you propose they train people for this? Dedicate multiple aircraft for flying these pilots into weather without any passengers? Then, if they dont experience the phenomenon, make them take it out again, at a time that it might happen? Also, how many times must they do it? Does anyone realize how much this would cost, and add to the price of airline tickets? Americans want everything... Serve caviar in the airplane, but dont want to pay for it. Basically, I just wanted to comment that there is no way to train for everything... Could additional training be done? Yes. Could additional requirements be made to make things safer? Yes. Should a co-pilot be required to have the same minimum number of hours in the cockpit as are required for a pilot? No... Everyone has to learn somewhere, and with such a high minimum requirement, there wouldnt be anywhere to learn, and the low airline prices that Americans want, would be a thing of the past.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims of Flight 3407. It is still surreal to me that a tragedy like this could happen in our small town, just minutes away from my home. Please take comfort in the fact that your loved ones will never be forgotten. Thank you for your tireless efforts to make flying safer for everyone.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Our utmost respect and praise to the families that lost loved ones in this tragedy for taking on the airline industry, the government and the FAA. I wish you strength and peace. We live near the site and will never, ever forget that night. We continue to pray for all of you and your efforts to change airline travel. God Bless all of you today on the walk, wish I could be there.......

On behalf, Im sure, of all Jazz lovers.Im celebrating all the years of great music that Gerry Niewood and Coleman Mellett gave us, especially with Chuck Mangione. An unbelievable loss to Jazz but,first and foremost, to their families and fellow musicians. What a wonderful tribute that your music embraces the (slideshow) memories of all that were lost that fateful night.

My thoughts are with each of you. As the wife of a frequent flier, I know that every flight could be his last. I am behind you in your demand that requirements for pilots and the airline industry be changed. If not for a twist of fate I could easily be in your place. Best wishes.

Missing my friend Kristin and remembering the 49 others who perished on this flight. May there be success with this campaign so that other needless tragedies like this one can be avoided in the future.

It is the morning of February 13th...I just listened to the interview on KDKA channel 2 out of Pittsburgh... in regards to Flight 3407. My sympathy is extended to all that have so tragically lost a loved one in that horrible crash. I for 7 years spent time as a flight attendant with Continental Express 50 seater jets. Everytime there is a crash it is ALWAYS considered PILOT ERROR!! PLEASE PLEASE if you havent already done this check into how many hours in a day a Pilot can fly. I have been up on STAND UP OVERNIGHTS and its just exactly what it is. You fly, get in less than 8 hours of sleep and right back on the aircraft. We are talking from the time you park the aircraft, all the people off the aircraft, wait for a shuttle to your hotel. How many people get off work and go right to bed, I know I cant. Then you are right back at the airport first thing in the morning. ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!! AND ITS ALWAYS PILOT ERROR. I am positive when mishaps and tragic accidents take place with the airlines...there are ways of covering up. What about the accident in Kentucky, I dont have all my facts I shouldnt even proceed but again...PILOT ERROR. Although AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL only had one person in the tower and the pilot traveled down the wrong runway and lights that were not properly working... I am not saying the pilots do not need more hours, I agree with you!! One thing is for certain check into sleep they do not receive. I am sure if you could have the word from people that were working in the airlines now, without them losing their jobs you would get a better picture. Again I am sorry for your loss...I really would like to see and hear of ONLY good things come from your perseverance!!
