Airborne 08.22.17: Privatization $$$, A Hangar for Doc, Wingsuit Jet

Also: Next X-37B Mission, Aero-Calendar, Ryanair, Citation X, Aurora, Commercial Spaceflight Federation, A&P Designation

ATC Privatization will be even costlier than thought... The Congressional Budget Office has released a revised scoring of the 21st Century AIRR Act (H.R. 2997), and the news is not good for supporters of the bill and its plan to separate ATC from the FAA. In the latest cost estimate released last week, the CBO says that the AIRR Act would increase the deficit by nearly $100 billion. That's $80 billion more than their previous estimate. According to the CBO, after taking into account lost tax revenue and new or increased taxes and fees, the net outcome is an increase in the deficit of $98.5 billion. A crowdfunding campaign is underway on Kickstarter to raise money towards the construction of a new hangar for Doc, the recently-restored B-29 that appeared at AirVenture last mon

ANN’s ‘Best SportPlanes of 2017’ List Keeps Coming Together

Zenith, RANS and Tecnam Make The Cut: SportPlane Industry Feedback Continues to Be (Mostly) Positive!

As we noted several days ago, we thought it was going to be easier than this... but the resulting flurry of highly educational emails, calls and remarks have made this year’s selection of the best SportPlanes of 2017 a pretty intriguing pursuit -- and a much busier one than we expected. And again, due to extensive feedback, it's been a bit more interesting this year, than it has in the past... We'd previously established that aircraft produced by Progressive Aerodyne (the SeaRey series), The Airplane Factory (Sling 2 and 4), Kitfox (especially the new S7 Kitfox Speedster), Van's (the recently upgraded RV-12iS) and consistent industry leader -- Sonex Aircraft (the Sonex, Waiex and Onex series) -- were early leaders for the list.
