Airborne 01.27.15: USCG Rescue!, Two Eagles Over Pacific, UAV v White House

Also: Hartzell/Red Bull, GA Coalition, Aero-Calendar, Commemorative Air Force, Sarah Brightman To ISS, Hot Air Balloon Endurance Record

The pilot of a single engine Cirrus SR22 aircraft that was being ferried across the Pacific Ocean reportedly ran into fuel transfer problems short of the Hawaiian Islands, Sunday and realized that he was going to come up short--and notified the Coast Guard. Subsequently, the pilot ultimately ran out of fuel some 253 miles northeast of Maui, Hawaii and deployed the BRS-designed parachute recovery system to ditch the aircraft. Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev departed Japan for the United States in a gas filled balloon named the Two Eagles on Saturday, January 24. Their plan is to cross the Pacific to the West Coast of the North American continent, but where they will reach North America depends on the winds aloft. When first reports emerged yesterday that a small Quadcop

Airborne 01.26.15: Pirker Settles w/FAA, Harrelson's Polar Journey, FAA Sued

Also: Airborne Unlimited Under The Weather (In More Ways Than One), House GA Caucus, New CubCrafters Boss, NAB Featuring UAVs, House Checks FAA Cert Processes, FAA Goes Off On Sleep Apnea... Again

A quick caveat... Ashley is REALLY under the weather and the entire ANN crew is traveling this week/scattered all over the known universe... which required some highly imaginative substitute tomfoolery to take Ashley's place for a day or two. So Jim Campbell steps in, where he's stuck in the middle of a snowstorm in the boonies of Indiana, in a hotel room with really lousy net access. But, as always, we persevered (ANN's specialty--no matter how great the odds). The results are acceptable, but let's just say that Ashley will NEVER have to worry about Jim competing for her job. With luck, we can get her back to work in a day or two and quit subjecting you to that ugly Jim guy...
