It was yet another busy week in the Aero-News biz. NTSB Chair Deborah A.P. Hersman held a news conference in Reno Tuesday to announce recommended changes in how air races are conducted in an effort to improve safety.
We're still recovering from last week's AEA convention, which is maybe understandable after nearly 1,500 avionics manufacturers, dealers, installers and other general aviation professionals gathered for the convention in Washington, D.C. A rule published last month in the Federal Register means that pilots who have been provided with a Special Issuance of a Medical Certificate no longer have to carry that letter with them when they fly. As predicted; LightSquared's orbit may be decaying towards a catastrophic re-entry.... We have ALL this and SO MUCH MORE in this week's edition of AIRBORNE!
As always, PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in mind for the future.
