Interesting article on Yahoo News. Makes it seem like WAAS is new or something.
Here is a good article:
That's my point. That article says WAAS has been around since 1994, yet my link acts like it's something new.
The FAA and Department of Transportation began developing WAAS in 1994. The system has been available for visual flight rules (VFR) and recreational use since August 2001. In July 2003, WAAS was approved for non-precision aircraft instrument operations, and in March 2006, LPV approaches became available. The WAAS project is expected to be completed in 2013, with a final price tag of $3.3 billion.
WAAS is still in development.
