I was in contact with K7GPS about this topic. He assured me that 
everything he was doing was legal. He also assured me that he instructed 
both opcupants of the airplane on how to disconnect the device should 
the need arise. So, it's his problem, really, not ours. It has been 
mentioned here already that what he doing is completely legal, outside 
of that is really his problem. K7GPS is not a new person to ham radio so 
I am sure that he thought of all aspects of this venture well in advance 
of it happening. Whether that means they will disconnect the device when 
they enter foreign airspace or they have set up the licensing. Again, 
it's his problem not ours.
Just gives some folks on the list something to talk about.
I once heard a great man say
"Great minds discuss ideas,
Average minds discuss events,
Small minds discuss people."

Am I the only one who thought to contact Dave directly. His email 
address is on QRZ.com
