More research into airline safety please

So the news of the moment is about a security researcher making reference to how insecure airline systems are while on a flight. An article at ZDNet inspired this tweet from @Wh1t3Rabbit

I read the article, retweeted the tweet, and replied wondering why there wasn't more research going into this.

The response I got back was surprising, especially coming from a security researcher who knows way more about this than I do.

I find this surprising because it's not like massive security holes haven't been found and fixed in systems before, and it seemed like that kind of response is about less research, not more.

Curious, perhaps he has his reasons.
