B-25 Mitchell Down In CA, Three On Board Injured

Aircraft Had Recently Participated In WWII Commemorations In Hawaii

We are still evaluating the information coming in on a crash in the central part of California state, near Stockton,  involving a WWII generation Mitchell Bomber that went down short of an airport and into an 'open' field, where an irrigation ditch, and other impediments apparently caused serious damage to the airframe. The aircraft involved is a 1944 B-25J (and most recently categorized as an 'N' Model after rebuild), serial number 44-28938, registered to PROAIR HOLDING COMPANY LLC, LATHAM , NY, as N7946C. The aircraft had previously been damaged in a forced landing accident near Reno, NV, in 1987. The aircraft later underwent an extensive 18000 hour restoration and flew again in September of 1995.

Ampaire Flies Second Hybrid-Electric Prototype

Test in Preparation for Flight Trials with Mokulele Airlines

Ampaire has flown its second technology demonstrator. The aircraft is a refined version of its Cessna 337 “Electric EEL” hybrid-electric aircraft conversion. The company refers to the new flight test aircraft as the Hawaii Bird, as it will be flown by Ampaire and Mokulele Airlines pilots on air routes in Hawaii later this year in a series of demonstration flights. When the aircraft flies on Maui, it will be the first time an electrically powered aircraft has flown under an FAA “market survey” experimental aircraft certificate in order to gain real-world flight experience.

Airborne 09.18.20: Diamond DA20-C1 Returns, Brutal GAMA Report, USMC $$$$

Also: SmartSky Sues, Tecnam P2012 SENTINEL SMP, Delta Pilot Jobs At Risk, Sterling Adds Archers

One of our favorite training birds is back... and upgraded, to boot! The high demand for single engine training aircraft has led to the return to production of the Diamond DA20-C1, powered by a 125HP Continental IO-240 engine and equipped with new state-of-the-art G500TXi Avionics. With over 1,000 DA20’s already operating worldwide, the strong desire for lower cost new single engine aircraft in training environments continues. The DA20 is proven to be the safest and most efficient aircraft for primary training, and fleet operators are raving about its return to production. This one had to hurt... GAMA released its report of general aviation aircraft shipments and billings through the second quarter of 2020 (June 30), and in view of the pandemic and economic downturn, no one was expecting hearts an

Airborne-Flight Training 09.10.20: Navy/NASA T-38s, Vincennes U, King Schools

Also: I/ITSEC 2020 Goes Virtual, Chad Weaver Av Scholarship, Airbus H145/135 Sim, S Utah Univ Adds Bell 505

The United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) is the Navy's principal operator of the Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon supersonic jet trainer, with 10 of the twin-engined aircraft in its inventory. The school's T-38s fly an average of 1,100 hours per year, providing students with valuable experience evaluating its performance, flying qualities, dynamics, and transonic and supersonic flight characteristics. Because the T-38C is the school's primary fixed-wing trainer, students are required to receive formal flight training in the aircraft prior to their arrival. In the past, this has been done at the U.S. Air Force's Air Education and Training Command at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, AETC had to pare back its training commitments to the Navy and its o

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
