Oshkosh 2018 is ramping up to be an outstanding addition to an aviator’s MUST-SEE list... especially now that we’ve learned that one of the homebuilt aircraft community’s most amazing efforts is due to make an appearance. Known as ‘Bally’s Bomber’ the third scale B-17 that has been painstakingly crafted over the course of more than 17 years is now looking to make its debut at Oshkosh, this July 23-29. The Bally Bomber for the first time last November 14th, though builder Jack Bally originally envisioned the project to require some five years or so... The result is gorgeous.... One of the seven wonders of the homebuilt aircraft world... this one requiring 25,000 rivets, and some 40,000 man-hours.

Also: A330neo Launch Operator, AMA Celebrates, Gulfstream G500 And G600, Wes' New Book

The Bell V280 Valor has reached a significant milestone it its flight test program. On May 11, the aircraft flew in "cruise mode" for the first time, reaching a true airspeed of 190 knots. The flight marks the first time the airplane has transitioned from vertical to horizontal flight by pivoting the rotors to a forward-facing configuration. The team plans to gradually expand the aircraft's flight envelope with a goal of achieving the designed cruise speed of 280 knots. The V-280 Valor is powered by two 5,000 horsepower GE T64-GE-419 engines. It is designed to carry a crew of four and up to 14 passengers at a combat range of between 500 and 800 nautical miles. The FAA has released a modification of its policy banning "doors off" helicopter flights that was put in place following an accident in New York City that

Also: BRS Parachute Rescue, Joe Nall Canceled, Mars Helicopter, Top Teen Rocket Scientists

A growing presence at each year’s AirVenture Fly-Ins has been the availability of a number of electrically powered aircraft. While most are concept aircraft hoping for eventual production, one, the Pipistrel Alpha Electro, is already in production and for sale. So, for this week’s “OSHStar” Feature, we have to admit serious anticipation in regards to what’s next for the composite electric two place training bird. The capabilities of the Alpha Electro 2-seat electric trainer were tailored to meet the needs of today’s flight schools. The bird boasts short take-off distances, a powerful 1000+ fpm climb, and an current endurance of one hour -- plus reserve. The Alpha Electro is specifically optimized for traffic-pattern operations, where 13% of energy is recuperated on every a
