Aero-News: Quote of the Day (09.26.20)

“The United States has the strongest aviation safety record in the world in part because of decades of bipartisan cooperation and coming together to make the system safer and better, and this legislation is a next step in that tradition. By evaluating and adjusting our incorrect assumptions about how pilots interface with the flight controls in emergency situations and ensuring that more realistic assumptions about human factors are integrated into system design, we will raise the bar even higher on the safety of our aviation industry.” Source: Rep. Garret Graves (LA-06), who is a partner in legislation to introduce the Human Factors Improvements to Aircraft Certification Act, bipartisan legislation to prioritize the consideration of human factors in the aircraft certification process and support pilots and flight crews as aviation technology advances.

We are still evaluating the information coming in on a crash in the central part of California state, near Stockton,  involving a WWII generation Mitchell Bomber that went down short of an airport and into an 'open' field, where an irrigation ditch, and other impediments, apparently caused serious damage to the airframe. Three people were on the aircraft. Two were transported to a local hospital, and one was able to walk away. Ampaire has flown its second technology demonstrator. The aircraft is a refined version of its Cessna 337 “Electric EEL” hybrid-electric aircraft conversion. The company refers to the new flight test aircraft as the Hawaii Bird, as it will be flown by Ampaire and Mokulele Airlines pilots on air routes in Hawaii later this year in a series o

Classic Aero-TV: 'No Other Options' -- The Israeli Air Force's Danny Shapira

From 2017: Remembrances Of An Israeli Air Force Test Pilot

Early in 2016, ANN contributor Maxine Scheer traveled to Israel, where she had the opportunity to sit down with retired Israeli Air Force Col. Danny Shapira, who served 25 years in the Israeli Air Force. Shapira was among the first pilots for the Israeli Air Force, which was formed shortly after the State of Israel was established in 1948. He and several others, including some Americans and pilots from other countries, went to Czechoslovakia to train in Avia S-199 aircraft, a variant of the Bf 109. The pilots and the aircraft brought back from Czechoslovakia were instrumental in holding off Arab attacks and cementing Israel as a sovereign state.
