Airborne 08.26.16: Citation Longitude Update, Falcon 9 Display, N Shore Heli Rte

Also: Aerosim Scholarship, Santa Monica Nonsense, Marine One, UAV Developer Kit, FAA Penalty, F-35 Weapons Test, Coastal Helicopters

The Cessna Citation Longitude moves closer to its first flight as initial ground engine tests on its Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines have been completed. This paves the way for the prototype aircraft to take its first flight in the coming weeks. The engine tests verified the functionality of the engine start, fuel system and auto-throttle as well as interfaces with the avionics, electrical and hydraulic systems. Elon Musk has made good on his promise to memorialize the first recovery of a Falcon 9 booster by having the rocket placed on permanent display outside the company's California headquarters. The booster was placed upright outside the building over the weekend. The booster was recovered at Cape Canaveral on December 21, 2015, after deliveri

Aero-TV: Aeros Nanolight Trike - The Pack-n-go Ultralight

An Ultralight Trike That Fits In Your Car For Drive And Fly Fun…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, ANN’s Earl Downs traveled south to the ultralight area (The Fun Zone) on a mission to search out some real ultralights. One that caught his eye was named the Aeros Nonolight Trike. Earl talked with Alexander Voronin, the director of Aeros; the company is located in Ukraine. First up was the question about this good-looking little machine’s ability to meet the FAR 103 ultralight regulations. Voronin assured Earl that with an empty weight of 90 kilograms, it is easily within the FAR 103 empty weight requirements. We checked it out; 90 kilograms is just under 200 pounds.

Cheesy--Or Just Plain Dishonest? FlyQ Email Suggests ForeFlight Offer--But Isn't

Recent E-Mailing Suggests One Product... But Is Actually Something Else Altogether

ANN has made much of the fact that we, as a community, need to be able to depend on one another as we attempt to extract ourselves from several decades of bad times. While there are a number of ways in which we can support one another while still protecting our own turf (in terms of commercial interests), fibbing to our customers or potential customers just doesn't seem to be the way to do it. You only have to look over the past many years at the mess made by Revolution Helicopter, FlightPrep, Icon Aircraft, Cirrus Aircraft, and others to see that a little bit (or a lot) of fibbing can have a significant effect on one's rep, if not the bottom line... though a few of the major fibbers, like Cirrus, seem to have gotten away with such issues a lot better than others. But we digress... Imagine our mild surprise when a few folks sent several examples of an interesting email to us that seemed to be pushing a really big ForeFlight discount -- when in fact, it was pushing

NASA Paints Airplane Parts Pink ... But Not Why You Might Think

Special Pressure-Sensitive Material Helps In Wind Tunnel Testing

While it may bear an eerie resemblance to a teenager's blacklight posters in the 1970s, the pink paint on aircraft and aircraft parts being wind-tunnel tested by NASA is about more than just glowing in the dark.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (08.29.16)

Aero Linx: Mission Safety International (MSI) Missionary Aviation is not for the faint of heart. Flying in remote areas of the world helping to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ requires years of training and a heart full of devotion. Yet, in spite of the dedication and professionalism of most aviation staff, there are still far too many accidents robbing missions of their effectiveness. However, for 30 years there has been help and hope coming out of the hills of eastern Tennessee. Since its incorporation as a non-profit mission agency in 1983, Mission Safety International (MSI) has worked tirelessly to meet the safety needs of mission aviation departments spread from one side of the globe to the other. While small and agile as an organization, MSI has developed connections with a host of experienced aviation and safety volunteers who can be called upon at a moment’s notice to meet specific needs just about anywhere in the world.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (08.29.16)

"We, as an industry, can do better... and while its not an infraction on the scale of those we've documented recently with Icon and other bad actors, it apparently created enough dissatisfaction for a number of folks to call or email us about their concerns. So... a lesson to aviation marketers... tell the truth, be as open and honest as you can be, and try to put your best foot forward... to avoid the kind of problems such inaccurate email pitches can be... and the fact that those commenting on the deception indicated that they'd be hard-pressed to believe or do business with the party involved... period. Ouch..." Source: ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, commenting on a matter of ethics and integrity that was raised when one company sent out email pitches with that seemed to be offering a competitor's product at a great discount... when it plainly wasn't.
