The FAA has approved Service Bulletin 17-009 for the Guimbal Cabri G2 that allows the pilot to use additional horsepower from the aircraft’s Lycoming 0360-J2A engine. Previously the allowed power had been 145 horsepower. The new rating allows the pilot to utilize 160 horsepower without any negative implications to operating costs or additional inspections. NBAA has filed its final brief before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit challenging the legality of the unprecedented settlement agreement reached earlier this year between the FAA and the city of Santa Monica, CA over the future of Santa Monica Municipal Airport (SMO). The U.S. Air Force is short nearly 2,000 pilots, and is facing a potential readiness challenge, according to the Secretary of the Air Force. Secr

Aero-TV: Pondering The Pilot Shortage - Phoenix East Aviation Provides Details

The Current Infrastructure Is Not Adequate To Meet The Demand…

There is undoubtedly a pilot shortage. That is the assessment of John Michael Bingham, President and CEO of Phoenix East Aviation, one of the nation's largest flight schools headquartered in Daytona Beach, FL. At NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas, Bingham told Aero-News CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell that becoming a pilot is a great career choice for young people right now, because every airline sees what's coming in the future over the next few years, and that is an "acute shortage of pilots."...

Barnstorming: Where Do We Go from Here? And How Do We Get There?

After 20+ Years of Shaking Things Up, There Is Still So Much More to Do

Have you ever believed in something so strongly that you’re willing to throw ‘common sense’ out of the window? To throw caution to the wind… to pursue that which you feel is one of the most important things you can do… even when there are other more conventional pursuits to follow? Welcome to the thought, passion and mission behind Aero-News… where what we’ve done may not have always made the most sense, in terms of the health and welfare of our business, but it came from the heart, and it came about because we believed (above all else) that it was the right thing to do. But doing the right thing has a price--one that has grown over the years… And by and large, we’ve been paying that price all by ourselves...  as the industry slowly eroded… fading away due to neglect, ignorance, and a woeful lack of passionate response to its enemies and all those who threatened its future… to where we stand

Airborne-Unmanned 11.14.17: Drone Registration, AT&T's Flying COW, Pilot Charged

A defense authorization bill that includes a return to civilian drone registration has been approved by a House/Senate conference committee, and is expected to be passed by both chambers and signed by President Trump. The language is included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018. It would again require the registration of drones weighing more than about half a pound with the federal government. AUVSI president and CEO Brian Wynne has expressed support for the policy, saying a drone registration system "promotes responsibility by all users of the national airspace." This COW might not be able to jump over the Moon, but it is helping residents of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico make phone calls. COW is an acronym for Cell On Wings, It is a helicopter drone that is being used by AT&a

A bill that includes a return to civilian drone registration has been included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018. It would again require the registration of drones weighing more than about half a pound with the federal government. "Congress finalized legislation that will reverse the earlier court ruling in the John Taylor case and restore the FAA’s UAS registration requirement, including for AMA members," said the AMA. Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke has issued an updated National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the terrorism threat to the U.S. homeland. “After careful consideration of the current terror threat environment—and with input from intelligence and law enforcement partners, I have made the decision to update

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (11.20.17)

Aero Linx: The Air Transport Association of Canada The Air Transport Association of Canada came into existence as a result of a conference of aircraft operators and aircraft manufacturers held in Ottawa (at the Chateau Laurier Hotel) on November 18, 1934. Forty-one delegates from commercial companies were present, as well as nine representatives from the Civil Aviation Division, which was then under the Department of National Defence, and five members of the National Research Council. The association was called the Commercial Air Transport and Manufacturers' Association of Canada. At the inception of the Association, and during its first three years of existence, the membership consisted of eighteen with equal representation from operators and manufacturers. In 1937 a permanent staff was appointed and an office was established in Ottawa. In 1939 the total membership was forty-eight. On November 2, 1942 the name was changed to the Air Industries and Transport Association of Canada

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (11.20.17)

"I no longer know if personal aviation… the kind that we dreamed of as kids, and now attempt to pursue as adults, has a future… I just know that it if it is to have one, that we need to wake up, quit fooling ourselves, and start building a healthy involved sustainable community to support it. And right now, we don’t have it. Not even close. We have an industry that turns its head and ignores what kills it off, bit by bit… we have a preponderance of leaders that are afraid (or unwilling) to lead… and we work in a climate in which those who try to do the right thing are often attacked/ridiculed for it—without a peep from those who benefit from those trying to save their collective asses. Some of this occurs through ignorance… some through dishonesty and malevolence. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell which is worse…" Source: ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbel
