It has been almost nine years since terrorists showed the world how easy it was to hijack fuel-laden airliners and use them as missiles on Sept. 11, 2001. The events of that day will never be forgotten and to this day continue to reverberate throughout many industries, particularly aviation. Oddly, although the terrorists chose to turn airliners into weapons, it was general aviation that was more severely punished.
