How difficult would it be for airlines to equip their aircraft - specifically those which fly long distances over water - to have a satellite transponder and regularly zip off a simple status via a satellite signal? Something like a time, GPS location, and status of the flight? Would this require so many satellites that it would blot out the sun?
