Also: Blue Angels Homecoming Cancelled, Upgraded Puma, Virtual Rotorcraft Conference, Aviation Safety Resources

Engineered Propulsion Systems, Inc, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company undertook this development of its own initiative via their debtor’s attorney, James D. Sweet of Steinhilber Swanson LLP.  The EPS Diesel engine program had been getting serious attention from civilian and military parties while the company reportedly spent some $60 million in private investment dollars to seek a working production version and eventual certification. Textron has flown its second Cessna SkyCourier flight test article (P1). The milestone flight for the high-wing, large utility aircraft comes just two-and-a-half months after the prototype Cessna SkyCourier first took to the skies on May 17. The P1 aircraft is the first conforming production flight test aircraft and is t

The prototype of Airbus Helicopters’ VSR700 UAS has performed its first free flight. The VSR700 performed a ten minute flight at a drone test centre near Aix-en-Provence in the south of France. This is a significant step in the programme following the first flight in November 2019 when the prototype was tethered to comply with regulatory requirements. To enable this free flight, Airbus Helicopters implemented geofencing, a virtual perimeter, which enabled and justified a flight clearance from airworthiness authorities for free flight. The flight test programme will now evolve to progressively open the flight envelope. A team from Boeing and the U.S. Air Force completed the first QF-16 Full-Scale Aerial Target to undergo conversion from a modification line in Arizona. The aircraft was fl

Pipistrel-USA dealer, Right Rudder Aviation, has just taken delivery of a new Pipistrel Panthera high-performance four place aircraft -- the first of its kind in all of North America. Right Rudder Aviation is an FBO/Flight School/Aircraft Dealer based at the Inverness Airport in Inverness, FL. The Panthera is one of the curviest aircraft to hit the scene in quite a while -- and a potential Cirrus killer. A composite (much of it carbon-fiber) four-place with tricycle retractable gear, a T-Tail, and an all-glass panel, the basics of this aircraft boast 1000NM range, 200 kts and at 10GPH.

The Space and Missile Systems Center, in partnership with the National Reconnaissance Office, competitively awarded two Firm-Fi

ANN/Airborne Special Programming Highlights: Oshkosh 2019

We're REALLY Going To Miss Bringing You OSH2020, But Here's The Next Best Thing...

The Aero-News Network, throughout its history of nearly a half million stories and tens of thousands of multi-media productions, is particularly proud of our special event coverage and programming. But... no event stirs our souls nearly as much as Oshkosh does... an event that ANN's CEO and Editor-In-Chief has been attending for nearly half a century (yup... he's getting WAY old...). And yet... 2020 is going to be the first year without an Oshkosh in our adult memories... so what to do? Well; the best bet to is to celebrate all the goodness and excitement of past AirVentures and make serious preparation to come back in 2021, with a vengeance.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (08.14.20)

Aero Linx: The Experimental Soaring Association The Experimental Soaring Association, formerly the Sailplane Homebuilders Association, is a division of the Soaring Society of America. While the key points of design and construction of self-built sailplanes remain at the core of the organization, new types of soaring flight, the problems of economical launching methods, the place of motorized sailplanes, and the challenge of reducing the cost of entry into soaring are major interests that prompted our change of name. Our goal is to share knowledge and to encourage experimentation, research, building, and flying of soaring aircraft. Our organization is built on the shoulders of aerospace giants such as Paul MacCready, Burt Rutan, and others, and we continue to pursue their goal of economical, efficient, and innovative forms of flight.
