Also: Albania Auction, Aero-Community: AEA!, 500 F-35 Hours, SeaPort Airlines, Maxcraft Avionics, Air Power Museum, Webb Space Telescope

Airborne 02.10.16: Antonov Kaput, Landmark Deal, Gone West-Edgar Mitchell

Also: Rig’N Fly, 'Krafting' The Future, North Korean Insanity, 1st Trans-Atlantic F-35, Llandudno Air Show, GPS IIF, East Hampton Noise Fight

It looks like another great aviation name may be about to fade into history. The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade in Ukraine has announced that the Antonov Aviation Concern will be shut down following the transfer last year of its three subsidiaries to the state-owned UkrOboronProm. The transfers left Antonov as a company without a product, and shutting it down was the next logical step. Antonov was the builder of the world's two largest transport aircraft; the An-225, of which only one was built, and the An-124. An FBO conglomerate gets larger as BBA Aviation has completed the acquisition of Landmark Aviation. This represents a major expansion of Signature Flight Support, which is a BBA Aviation company.

Airborne 02.09.16: Garmin ADS-B TXP, LEO Helo v UAV, CA Mid-Air

Also: Blue Origin, Aero-Calendar, FA Legislation, F-35C Update, Delta Succession, First SLS Flight, PWC History

Garmin has a game changer going as they announced their new GTX 345 and GTX 335 all-in-one ADS-B transponders that include Extended Squitter ADS-B Out with options for built-in WAAS, as well as dual-link ADS-B In. The GTX 345/335 integrate on a wide variety of current and legacy Garmin displays, including select G1000 Integrated Flight Decks. As drones continue to be a concern for airspace safety, it’s reported that last week the crew of the Fresno County, California Sheriff's Office helicopter encountered a so-called dangerous situation. It’s reported that while flying at an altitude of 550 feet, the pilot saw something in the sky resembling a bird. As he reportedly flew closer, it appeared to be a small airplane. The pilot then maneuvered out of its path and

Airborne 02.08.16: Gone West-Jeff Pino, UAL Flt Training, Skydive Myrtle Beach

Also: FAA Reauthorization Fight, Westjet 737, FAA Unions, Tuskegee Airmen Mustang, Orion Crew Module, NATA, Commercial/CFI Syllabus

ANN is aggrieved to report that former Sikorsky President Jeff Pino and his friend, Nicholas Tramontano, were reported killed last Friday in the crash of Pino's P-51 Mustang, named 'Big Beautiful Doll.' The airplane went down near Maricopa, Arizona. A massive presence in the military, civilian and business aviation community, the retired Sikorsky Boss was a good friend to ANN, a valued member of the 'Let Bob Fly,' inner circle and certainly one of the best amongst us. Pilots flying for United Continental Holdings will get some specialized training designed to boost safety and improve communications. And while the airline says the program is "forward-looking", it does follow a strongly-worded letter sent to pilots last year concerning "major safety even
