Airborne-Flight Training 05.20.20: Sporty's Resumes, RRA Motor-Glider, Texas A/C

Also: EAA Confirms COVID-19 SFAR Problems, Tech School Revoked, Rudy Frasca Goes West, FAA Examiner Bribe Attempt

We’re a few steps closer to ‘normalcy.’ With many Ohio businesses open and others preparing for a restart, Sporty's Academy tells us they have resumed training operations last week. Sporty's maintenance staff has carefully examined the entire fleet and cleared each aircraft for return to service, but also notes that each pilot should do the same for themselves as they prepare to return to the flight deck. In light of the new reality, Sporty's has made changes. Getting a pilot’s license is expensive... right? I mean, WAY EXPENSIVE... like over $10K or something... or so they tell us. Well... maybe not. Right Rudder Aviation of Florida’s Inverness Airport (KINF) looked over the regs and then looked over at their Pipistrel Motor-Glider and realized that a gli

EAA Advises EPA Against Need for Evaluation or Regulation of Avgas Component

EAA Made Clear That The Public Has Limited To No Exposure To EDB In Concentrated Form

EAA recommended the EPA not designate an integral component of avgas, ethylene dibromide (EDB), as a high-priority substance for future study and regulation to avoid profound safety of flight and economic implications that would result from potential control or limitation on EDB, which could effectively limit or eliminate the continued availability of leaded high-octane avgas. EDB is used as the scavenger for lead in avgas and makes up one of the two major components of the octane-enhancing, lead-additive package used in avgas production called TEL-B, which is principally made up of tetraethyl lead and EDB. Any future efforts to regulate EDB in aviation gasoline under the Toxic Substances Control Act could have the same effect as regulating lead, with serious implications for general aviation. There is no immediate threat to the supply of leaded aviation gasoline, and the current EPA activity to evaluate up to 40 chemicals for prioritization for study and p

Classic Aero-TV: SureFooted -- Jessica Cox Continues To Inspire Aviators

From 2015: There Are No Horizons Unreachable To The Inspired Flyer Who Dreams Big

Aviation has had a history, albeit a short history, of showcasing people who inspire us. A recent example of inspiration born of aviation is Jessica Cox, the young lady who although born without arms was able to obtain her pilot certificate. In this video, her story continues, and it's a video that can inspires us far beyond the world of aviation. While at Sun 'n Fun 2015, ANN News Editor, Tom Patton, had a chance to talk with Jessica about a new and exciting experience she encountered, and we get updated regarding her various projects. The video shows Jessica excited about her opportunity to fly in an aerobatic airplane. She once again shows us that her ability to improvise had to be applied for her to experience this flight.

Pulselite Bird Strike Prevention System STC Expanded to Include Bell 429 and 505

Pulselite System Has Been Proven To Significantly Reduce Bird Strikes

Precise Flight has expanded its Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA for the Pulselite Bird Strike Prevention System to include approvals for the Bell 429 and Bell 505 variations. The Pulselite System is an FAA certified lightweight electrical system controller that alternatively pulses the landing and auxiliary lights of a helicopter, thereby increasing visibility and reflecting the speed and directional movement of the rotorcraft. In addition to enhancing the margin of safety by increasing rotorcraft recognition, the Pulselite System has been proven to significantly reduce bird strikes.
