A much upgraded version of the speedy SJ30i light bizjet has taken to the skies... just in time to be able to strut its stuff for the upcoming NBAA Convention next week in Las Vegas, NV. SyberJet Aircraft’s SJ30i successfully completed the first flight of its SJ30i aircraft featuring an all-new cockpit based around the Honeywell Epic 2.0 avionics suite. The flight was conducted out of its Engineering and Product Development Center at the San Antonio International Airport (KSAT) and kicked off an 18-month certification test program which will culminate in an amended type certificate for the SJ30 -- followed by immediate deliveries.

Chinese authorities announced the capture of Song Jiang, 63, several days ago. He was being held for trafficking in women and children, according to state media reports.

In one of the most questionable moves made by the FAA under the leadership of a new Administrator, the world of model aviation has been targeted for questionable new restrictions.

Additionally, the FAA is proposing restrictions in uncontrolled airspace to altitudes that could present safety issues as well as limit so
