Anti-Air Traffic Control Privatization Rally Held at AirVenture 2017

AirVenture Attendees Mobilized to Make Voices Heard in Congress

Hundreds of attendees attending AirVenture 2017 attended a rally led by EAA and other aviation industry leaders to share outrage over a new aviation reauthorization bill and mobilize immediate and strong opposition and outreach. The bill, H.R. 2997, the 21st Century AIRR Act, introduced by Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA-9) reauthorizes funding for FAA and contains a provision that would separate the FAA's Air Traffic Organization into an independent, congressionally chartered nonprofit corporation.

Airborne 07.25.17: Blue Origin Stands Tall!, Dynon-Certified, Rotax 915iS

Also: Able Flight, Piper M600 Grounding, Avidyne Updates, Pelton Intvw Part 2

No one who goes to Oshkosh remains surprised… for long... at all the amazing things they see at Wittman Field... but reuseable rockets? ANN’s Jim Campbell went over to Blue Origin to see why they came to AirVenture 2017... and got a tour of their crew capsule. Rotax has had its new 915 iS engine in the works for quite a while, but the company says that they are closing in on European and U.S. Certification. ANN’s Tom Patton got an update on the engine from Marc Becker from Rotax. Piper president and CEO Simon Caldecott said at AirVenture on Monday that a possible material specification issue had cropped up with the M600, leading to a precautionary grounding of the fleet of 36 delivered airplanes. Caldecott said that there was a material thickness issue with the aft wing spar that was di

Airborne-Unmanned 07.25.17: Airspace Auto-Authorization, Bogus UAV Hit, CA Regs

Also: “Drone Billboard”, Eagle v Drone, Self-Driving Cars, Drone Locates Lost Man, Airborne-Unmanned-Help Wanted

Greatly anticipated, it appears that this fall, some 50 airports will begin providing Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), which will give UAS operators the ability to “apply for instant, digital approval to fly in U.S. controlled airspace using the same applications they use for flight planning and in-flight situational awareness.” Currently, FAA authorization is required for flights in controlled airspace, at certain times of day, or near sensitive locations. Authorization requests are subject to long waiting periods and labor-intensive manual approvals, which can add more time to, or entirely halt, the process of commercial UAS operations. No surprise here, folks! When a student pilot and instructor approaching Parafield airport near

The Isurus Oxyrinchus Of The Sky

Sleek And Efficient, Fast And Sexy. But You’ll Have To Wait.

Nature rarely makes mistakes, notwithstanding the cockroach. Birds are designed to fly efficiently, raptors to soar, Hummingbirds to hover. Fish are designed to swim quickly to evade predators unless that predator is the Isurus Oxyrinchus, or more commonly known as the Mako Shark, one of, if not the fastest fish in the sea. Mako is a Maori word of Polynesian dialect but the scientific name Isurus means “The same tail” and Oxyrinchus means “Pointy snout” and that is prevalent in the esthetics of the newly designed Stratos Single Engine jet.
