One of the efforts ANN and Jim Campbell are best known for, are our flight test reports. However; the amount of work required to keep ANN on the straight and level hasn’t allowed us to do any for a while. Further; we’ve been aggressively pursuing a new plan for how to conduct them in terms of the many media options currently available. Well... for now, the highly detailed and long-awaited flight test report on the Pipistrel Panthera is now online with parts 1 and 2, so far, of the massive 8000 word 6-part report. The rest of the report will be unveiled in  portions every few days. Shortly thereafter; we will also produce a video report once we have finalized our video test criteria. What a crushing disappointment... Due to weather conditions, the aircraft participating in the Arsenal o

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 2

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-n-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy)

ANN E-I-C Note: OK… sorry for the delay with Part Two, but it’s been a tough week at the Campbell Family Ranch (death in the family), while the workload at ANN has seen no diminishment, whatsoever… especially with BIG changes right around the corner… like, in a few days. Part Two gets into airplane descriptions and systems with a vengeance… with more to follow before we light the candle on this thing and launch into the stratosphere… which is kinda what a Panthera takeoff felt like.

Airborne-Flight Training 09.23.20: DA20 Upgrades, CAE Financing, EMU Partnership

Also: Sterling Flight Training, National Aviation Academy, Young Eagles Workshops, ERAU Suspensions

One of our favorite training birds is back... and upgraded, to boot!

Classic Aero-TV: Potential Energy -- Aero Electric Aircraft Corporation

From 2014: The Future Of Aviation Could Prove To Be Uniquely Powerful

Learning to fly can be an “electrifying” experience, and ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, gives us a new view of this experience while he was at the Redbird Migration 2014. Campbell met with George Bye, the CEO of the Aero Electric Aircraft Corporation. The subject in this discussion was all about learning to fly in an electric airplane. Bye believes that the time of a practical electric airplane has come about due to a combination of technologies. In the video you’ll see a comparison of the operating cost between a proposed electric training plane and the more typical Cessna trainer. Their airplane, called the Sun Flyer, could have a direct hourly operating cost as low as $.90 to $1.50 per hour.
