Airborne 05.25.16: Canada SeaPlane Regs, Blimp Downed, Citation Longitude Mated

Also: USAF Hassled, Hummel UltraCruiser, Helo Limits, FAA Video, Greg Connell Accident, Medical Helo Suit, Bombardier's 100th VistaJet

Canada is proposing changes to their seaplane regulations. The proposed regulations respond to the Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s recommendations following the 2009 seaplane accident in Lyall Harbour, British Columbia and the 2012 accident in Lillabelle Lake, Ontario. The changes appear to be addressing the fact that, when on the water, a seaplane is effectively a boat and that passengers should be protected in the case of an occurrence that places them in the water. This issue is particularly important in Canada because of the extensive use of seaplane travel in their more remote areas. An advertising blimp made an off-airport emergency landing last Friday, with initial reports indicating the problem had something to do with engine o

Icon Controversy Continues, But Icon Has Yet To Speak Up

The Company That Won't Answer Questions, May Finally Have To Do So

ANN has been bombarded with info and reports concerning the health and well-being of the Icon Aircraft program... many of them attributed to comments that were allegedly imparted at a recent Regional Aviation event. And while multiple sources appear to have determined that there is some modest consensus on what's going on, many of them referring to an industry personality who has failed to return our calls, ANN simply can't/won't report this data until someone steps forward with substantial facts and verifiable evidence. But Icon isn't talking. However; even Icon's hometown paper tells ANN that the company isn't talking to them either, and numerous customers who were reportedly promised communications (if not a revised contract) by now, have yet to hear anything of substance. And finally; a respected source suggests that there may be a press release as early as today, Wednesday, though the contents of that communications are still undetermined.
