Well I guess if ya spend your life always looking for conflict, your the one whose gonna find it.

Since the people slandered in the above post all seem to get along fine at the field I fly at, I'll put forth the more reasonable theory that for the majority of the general public the romance of aviation is gone, and other hobbies are more attractive to them now (video games, etc). Less people buying = less people supplying, kinda like what happened to the electronic kit building hobby. Just as there are still electronic kits to be bought today, there are still model airplanes being sold, but at no where near the numbers of years past.
