The HINCH VOR is out of service and the FAA doesn't want to repair it. It's a major navigation aid in central Tennessee. The FAA is taking a poll to see how much it's used before they decide whether or not they are going to repair it. The FFA is leaning toward a GPS takeover if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, GPS is great but VOR's are a great backup and also still a good form of primary navigation. Pilots are still trained to use the VOR so I guess eventually GPS instead of VOR will be on all pilot exams.
