Aero-News: Quote of the Day (08.29.16)

"We, as an industry, can do better... and while its not an infraction on the scale of those we've documented recently with Icon and other bad actors, it apparently created enough dissatisfaction for a number of folks to call or email us about their concerns. So... a lesson to aviation marketers... tell the truth, be as open and honest as you can be, and try to put your best foot forward... to avoid the kind of problems such inaccurate email pitches can be... and the fact that those commenting on the deception indicated that they'd be hard-pressed to believe or do business with the party involved... period. Ouch..." Source: ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, commenting on a matter of ethics and integrity that was raised when one company sent out email pitches with that seemed to be offering a competitor's product at a great discount... when it plainly wasn't.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (08.29.16)

Aero Linx: Mission Safety International (MSI) Missionary Aviation is not for the faint of heart. Flying in remote areas of the world helping to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ requires years of training and a heart full of devotion. Yet, in spite of the dedication and professionalism of most aviation staff, there are still far too many accidents robbing missions of their effectiveness. However, for 30 years there has been help and hope coming out of the hills of eastern Tennessee. Since its incorporation as a non-profit mission agency in 1983, Mission Safety International (MSI) has worked tirelessly to meet the safety needs of mission aviation departments spread from one side of the globe to the other. While small and agile as an organization, MSI has developed connections with a host of experienced aviation and safety volunteers who can be called upon at a moment’s notice to meet specific needs just about anywhere in the world.

Another Tough Weekend For Airshows... Two Pilots Lost

Accidents in Oregon and China Take Pilot's Lives

It's been a lousy weekend to be an aviation journalist as we document the tragic loss of two well-known pilots in two separate airshows accident.. each on the other side of the world. At the 1st Silk Road International General Aviation Convention held at Danxia airport in China, well-known Red Bull pilot Michel Leusch (shown here) was lost when a performance resulted in a series of rolling descending maneuvers that inexplicablu terminated in a ground impact some 300-400 feet from the edge of the runway. Leusch made a name for himself in both model as well as full scale aviation. On the other side of the world, a 1941 450 Stearman flown by NW Aerobat Marcus Paine apparently failed to execute a loop, which terminated in contact with the ground shortly before 1500 local time, in Madras, OR. The aircraft caught fire shortly after impact but Paine was extricated quickly by first-responders... but none-the-less succumbed to his injuries.
