We Need YOUR Help To Find AND Celebrate The Coolest Stuff At EAA AirVenture 2018, #OSH18COOL

Stuff that’s new is cool… we get it… that’s why we’re bringing our AirVenture Innovation Preview webcast to you on Saturday evening, July 21, to introduce the things that are new and unique at EAA AirVenture 2018. However, there is a lot of cool stuff that has little to do with being new stuff, but still deserves the designation of 'cool.' This is where we need your help. Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture. To help us share what’s really cool to you, we are initiating our first time ‘#OSH18Cool’ program that allows you to tweet

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (05.21.18)

Aero Linx: The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) is a Schedule 3A public entity in terms of the Public Finance Management Act ("PFMA"). It was established on the 1st of October 1998, following the enactment of the now repealed South African Civil Aviation Authority Act,1998 (Act No.40 of 1998). The Act provided for the establishment of a stand-alone authority charged with promoting, regulating and enforcing civil aviation safety and security.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.21.18)

"Typical finished weight of a metal Chipper is 625 to 630 pounds with a Rotax engine and 21" tires. Useful load is greater than 600 pounds, and engines up to 120 HP may be used. With my upgraded Rotax, I'm cruising at about 92 knots with huge tundra tires and long Alaska main / tail gear @ 5.4 GPH. Furthermore, my Chipper is set up with nearly 50 gallons of usable fuel, allowing a remarkable 8 hour range. This has aided my flying into remote wilderness in northern Canada and Alaska."

Also: A330neo Launch Operator, AMA Celebrates, Gulfstream G500 And G600, Wes' New Book

The Bell V280 Valor has reached a significant milestone it its flight test program. On May 11, the aircraft flew in "cruise mode" for the first time, reaching a true airspeed of 190 knots. The flight marks the first time the airplane has transitioned from vertical to horizontal flight by pivoting the rotors to a forward-facing configuration. The team plans to gradually expand the aircraft's flight envelope with a goal of achieving the designed cruise speed of 280 knots. The V-280 Valor is powered by two 5,000 horsepower GE T64-GE-419 engines. It is designed to carry a crew of four and up to 14 passengers at a combat range of between 500 and 800 nautical miles.

After a number of years in Ontario, California; the highly anticipated 2018 rendition of AMA Expo West will show up in new digs and a somewhat different time of the year. This year, the AMA Expo West team will appear this November 2-4, 2018 at the Fairplex Exposition Center, in  Pomona, California. The new location allows for an extensive series of indoor and outdoor events, flights, races and demonstrations -- significantly broadening the scope and reach of the event -- including full scale flyovers, professional demos and some night flying offerings, to boot.

Also: DJI Microsoft Partner, ALPA 'Keeping A Close Eye', King Online Drone Course, Solar UAV

First announced last October, this White House initiative partners the FAA with local, state and tribal governments, which then partner with private sector participants to safely explore the further integration of drone operations. “Data gathered from these pilot projects will form the basis of a new regulatory framework to safely integrate drones into our national airspace.” said Secretary Chao. Two proposed drone rules have been sent to the White House by the DOT even as the agency was unveiling the 10 winners of UAV pilot projects. One aspect of the rules would allow flight over populated areas and gatherings of people. The other would allow for tracking of unmanned aircraft in flight and remote identification of those aircraft. Once formally proposed, it could take up to a year before they
