Lots of changes are underway for when you take flight.

The TSA announced it will ditch full-body scanning machines that travelers complained produced almost naked images of people.

Meanwhile, the FAA held the first of several meetings last week to explore the end of restrictions on electronics during take-off and landing.

And the investigation is widening on the battery problems plaguing Boeing's 787 Dreamliner.

To wrap up all this news, we turn to one man who's at the helm. Patrick Smith is a commercial airline pilot, and author of the blog AskThePilot.com.
