Another new executive jet will start service later this year. It’s been announced that the FAA has certified Embraer Executive Jet’s new Legacy 450. The approval comes a few weeks after the aircraft earned certification from Brazil's civil aeronautics authority. The Legacy 450 seats up to nine people and has an operating range of 2,348 nautical miles at Mach point eight zero. The airplane has a maximum ceiling of 45,000 feet and a top speed of Mach point eight three. In formal comments submitted this week, the NBAA reiterated the Association’s significant concern over a recent announcement from the Environmental Protection Agency that the agency might consider new regulations for aircraft-carbon emissions.

Aero-TV: Center of Attention – Oshkosh Tower/AirVenture 2015

No Matter What, You Can't Get To The BIG SHOW Without KOSH Tower!

It’s been said that during EAA AirVenture, the control tower at Wittman Regional Airport is the busiest tower in the world. In this video you have the chance to see how it works and to listen-in on some of the communications. ANN reporter, Bruce Brandon, had the opportunity to interview, Elaine Buckner, who is the Air Traffic Manager at the EAA AirVenture control tower. When Bruce asked if it’s really true this is the busiest control tower in the world, she replied that it is, and even more uniquely it does it without working a 24 hour schedule. As the interview continues you get a detailed look at how the tower actually operates, how controllers are trained, and how they are scheduled to do their jobs while maintaining a modicum of sanity.

Airborne 09.01.15: RV-12 Milestone, MH370 Wreckage... NOT?, Sling 2 To Hawaii

Also: JetFuelX, Aero-Calendar, CEO Lends Corporate Jet, Citation Latitude Delivers, Trans States Pilots, Airbus Heli’s H175, Pink King Air

Van’s Aircraft tells us that On August 27, their shipping department had several orders to fill, and by the end of the day, they’d rolled the 937th RV-12 kit empennage package onto the shipping dock. While the number 937 seems like an odd number to celebrate, Van’s says that combined with the S-LSA “fly-away” RV-12s the company has constructed, the total number of RV-12 empennage kits produced and sold now totals one thousand. Despite the fact that Malaysian authorities have said with certainty that the airplane part found on Reunion Island is from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, which went missing March 8, 2014, French authorities are not ready to say with certainty that they agree. The French are inspecting the debris bec

Aero-TV: Updating Your Attitude - BendixKing’s KI300 Solid State Electronic AI

Slowly But Surely, BendixKing Builds A Whole New Product Line

While at EAA AirVenture 2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, took some time to get an attitude check. He did this by stopping by the Bendix King display and talking with Justin Ryan, who is the president of BendixKing. The topic of their discussion was the new BendixKing KI 300 solid-state attitude indicator. Ryan explained that BendixKing has listened to its customers that wanted a better way to provide attitude reference for their BendixKing auto flight systems. The new KI 300 is designed to replace the mechanical gyro-driven KI 256 currently in use. Ryan points out that the KI 300 allows the aircraft owner to provide solid-state input to the autopilot and gain reliability over the vacuum driven instrument while saving the cost of going to a complete EFIS.

Airborne 08.31.15: CAP 'Total Force' Upgrade, NBAA v User Fees, Airshow Loss

Also: Buzz Aldrin Space Institute, Drone Spots Shark, Texting Accident, SECAF At BellHeli, B4UFLY App, NTSB MidAir Prelim, ERAU Drones

Last week ANN’s Jim Campbell was fortunate to be at the CAP National Conference when it was announced that General Mark A. Welsh announced the official recognition of the Civil Air Patrol as the fourth member of the Air Force Total Force team. The official recognition reflects CAP’s key and continuing contributions to the Air Force mission working with the Active, Guard and Reserve components to provide the Air Force with a full spectrum of distinct and complementary capabilities. The NBAA is calling on its members to contact members of Congress during this recess with a message that they should oppose any FAA reauthorization bill that calls for privatized air traffic control funded by user fees. In an email to ANN, NBAA’s Chris Strong wrote, "This
