Airborne 10.23.20: P2010 TDI Cert, OSIRIS-REx, MultiGP Championships

Also: F-22's Intercept Russians, WAI Scholarships, Honeywell-Pipistrel, Dufour Demo's eVTOL

TECNAM has received a Type Certificate for the P2010 TDI from EASA. The P2010 TDI certification adds the Diesel/JetA1 engine to the family of Avgas and Mogas-powered TECNAM aircraft. The P2010 airframe, with its composite fuselage design and the all-metal wing and stabilator, has proven to be a good match for the Diesel engine. The "P Twenty-Ten" now offers the flexibility offered by the use of Diesel/JetA1 fuel and the low operating costs provided by the dual FADEC-controlled Continental engine. NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft unfurled its robotic arm Tuesday, and in a first for the agency, briefly touched an asteroid to collect dust and pebbles from the surface for delivery to Earth in 2023. This well-preserved, ancient asteroid, known as Bennu, is currently more than 200 million miles from Earth. Benn

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 3

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-in-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy)

ANN E-I-C Note: OK… serious apologies for dragging this out… but things are crazy here… we’ve hired some new people, we’re training aggressively, we have a stunning number of new clients, and business is… well, busy. I’ve been editing parts Four and Five and already have the final edit of Part Six underway. We take these reports VERY seriously… and based on some of the drivel I see (especially on YouTube) that tries to pass itself off as a so-called flight report or evaluation, we may be one of the few left, who do. So… without further delay, let’s get on with Part Three… Each seat adjusts easily, A small ball connected to a cable, close up and under the seat, acts as a seat release and then you shift your gluteus maximus (and some of ours are more maximus than others) until yo

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.

ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it. Fortunately for us, we realized early on we couldn't be everywhere at once -- curse the laws of physics! -- so we came up with the idea of News-Spies. Just as the title suggests, a News-Spy is a reader who notices a news item -- be it in the newspaper, on television, or something they came across at their own airport, town hall, at the office water cooler or just by walking down the street -- basically, any item a reader may think is newsworthy, that pertains to the world of aviation.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (10.25.20)

"SpaceX believes that fully and rapidly reusable rockets are the pivotal breakthrough needed to dramatically reduce the cost of access to space to enable people to travel to and live on other planets. While most rockets are expendable after launch — akin to throwing away an airplane after a one-way trip from Los Angeles to New York — SpaceX is working toward a future in which reusable rockets are the norm." Source: Quoted from a recent SpaceX statement accompanying info and background celebrating the 100th successful launch of a SpaceX Falcon rocket.
