Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. and Blue Line Aviation recently inked a firm order for 50 Diamond Aircraft... including single engine DA40 NG’s, twin engine DA42-VI’s and a Diamond Simulator, with an option for up to 50 additional aircraft. The order comes less than a year after Blue Line Aviation’s 8 year anniversary. NASA and Boeing are evaluating a new target launch date for the CST-100 Starliner’s Orbital Flight Test-2 (OFT-2) to the International Space Station after winter storms in Houston, and the recent replacement of avionics boxes, set the program back about two weeks. NASA also is weighing the volume of verification and validation analysis required prior to the test flight and the visiting vehicle schedule at the International Space Station.

Airborne-Flight Training 03.04.21: Master Instructor, EAA Air Academy, Skyborne

Also: CAE Acquiring L3Harris, USHST Report, FAA Vaccine Report, FRASCA Expands

The original and highly regarded Master Instructor program, which arguably set the standard of excellence in aviation education when first introduced in 1997, has settled comfortably in the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) nest as the Master Instructor Continuing Education Program (MICEP) for all aviation educators. The original Master Instructor Program, written and introduced by professional educators Sandy and JoAnn Hill of Colorado, celebrates its 24th year representing what then-FAA Administrator Marion Blakey called "the best the right seat has to offer" in aviation. The EAA Air Academy will remain on hiatus until 2022, with this summer's sessions in Oshkosh canceled due to the difficulty of scheduling multiple weeks of education sessions involving young people from throughout the country.

Airborne-Special Edition 02.11.21: Aviation Safety Resources' Larry Williams

Also: Next-Gen Airplane Parachutes, Lighter, Smaller, and More Cost-Effective, Coming Soon

ANN’s Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell has an interesting background as a test pilot... But one of the most exciting programs he was part of …..was flying and testing the first early generation of emergency airframe parachute systems on several different Cessnas, while working with two separate development programs. The technology has progressed so much since then, but the next generation of airframe recovery parachute systems is undergoing preparation for the civilian market and beyond... promising better/lighter materials, small sizes, and lower costs. Our Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell interviewed Aviation Safety Resources’ CEO and President Larry Williams to get the inside scoop on what we’ll be seeing from ASR in the very near future -- and take our words for it, ASR seems ready to sh

FAA: Laser Strikes Increase Even with Fewer Planes Flying

FAA Has Imposed Civil Penalties Up To $30,800

Laser strikes against pilots increased in 2020 even with the overall decrease in air traffic operations. In 2020, pilots reported 6,852 laser strikes to the FAA. This is an increase from 6,136 laser strikes reported in 2019 and is the highest number reported to the agency since 2016. The FAA remains vigilant in raising awareness about misuse of lasers when they are pointed towards aircraft. Intentionally aiming lasers at an aircraft poses a safety threat to pilots and violates federal law. Many high-powered lasers can incapacitate pilots flying aircraft that may be carrying hundreds of passengers.

Classic Aero-TV: PS Engineering Double Threat--Ultimate GA Audio Panel Innovator

From 2016 (YouTube Version): Audio Panels Engineered for Pilots with Features that Make Sense…

At EAA AirVenture 2016, PS Engineering Inc. was talking about, and showing, their PMA450A and PMA8000G audio panels for aircraft. While audio panels started off as simply a box that allowed switching between a couple of radios, we are now a long way from that starting point. About the only thing these audio panels don’t do is start your morning coffee, and we’ll have to see if that shows up next year. ANN News Editor, Tom Patton, stopped by the PS Engineering display and listened about what these audio panels have to offer from Mark Scheuer, who is the President of PS Engineering. Scheuer takes no shame in saying that PS Engineering provides the top audio panels in the industry.
