Airborne 10.06.17: Bell V280 Valor, UN-Retired AF Pilots, NBAA Emphasizes Safety

Also: Gone West: Donald Malarkey, HR 2997 Must Go..., PT6C-67A Cert, Enstrom 280FX, SAFO, K-MAX Order

The Bell V-280 Valor prototype aircraft has successfully begun its restrained ground run test operations.

The aircraft will continue ground run testing at the Bell Helicopter Amarillo Assembly Center where it will undergo a series of functional tests running all aircraft systems and flight controls in preparation for first flight this fall. The V-280 has been designed to provide our military with the speed, range and operational productivity needed to complete any mission successfully and outmatch every opponent. Retired Air Force pilots holding Air Force Specialty Code 11X are being encouraged to apply for the Voluntary Retired Return to Active Duty Program in order to fill rated staff positions to help alleviate the existing manning shortages within the Air Force rated pilot community. The Secretary of the Air Force approved VRRAD for implementation on July 11, 2017, as one of a wide range of initiatives the Air Force is pursuing to improve pilots’ quality of life and quality of service in order to increase retention. The tragedy that happened in Las Vegas on Sunday has everyone on edge. But the city is a popular destination for hundreds of conventions and trade shows every year, including the NBAA-BACE, which is coming up next week. NBAA released a statement this week to reassure those planning to attend the annual convention and trade show that safety is a top priority for the city as well as the organization. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
