Also: EAA Confirms COVID-19 SFAR Problems, Tech School Revoked, Rudy Frasca Goes West, FAA Examiner Bribe Attempt

We’re a few steps closer to ‘normalcy.’ With many Ohio businesses open and others preparing for a restart, Sporty's Academy tells us they have resumed training operations last week. Sporty's maintenance staff has carefully examined the entire fleet and cleared each aircraft for return to service, but also notes that each pilot should do the same for themselves as they prepare to return to the flight deck. In light of the new reality, Sporty's has made changes. Getting a pilot’s license is expensive... right? I mean, WAY EXPENSIVE... like over $10K or something... or so they tell us. Well... maybe not. Right Rudder Aviation of Florida’s Inverness Airport (KINF) looked over the regs and then looked over at their Pipistrel Motor-Glider and realized that a gli

ANN/Airborne Special Programming Highlights: Oshkosh 2019

We're REALLY Going To Miss Bringing You OSH2020, But Here's The Next Best Thing...

The Aero-News Network, throughout its history of nearly a half million stories and tens of thousands of multi-media productions, is particularly proud of our special event coverage and programming. But... no event stirs our souls nearly as much as Oshkosh does... an event that ANN's CEO and Editor-In-Chief has been attending for nearly half a century (yup... he's getting WAY old...).

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (06.02.20)

"After take-off aircraft CT114161 was observed gaining altitude and departing the formation. Shortly thereafter, the aircraft initiated a left turn, followed shortly by an abrupt steep nose low attitude. Both occupants subsequently ejected from the aircraft. A detailed analysis of video footage recovered for the investigation revealed one bird in very close proximity to the aircraft right engine intake during the critical phase of take-off. The two occupants ejected the aircraft however one received serious injuries and the other received fatal injuries. The aircraft was destroyed on impact." Source: From a sad but stunning initial report published by Canada's National Defence Airworthiness Investigative Authority, following the May 17th accident that took the life of Snowbird PAO, Captain Jenn Casey, and seriously injured Snowbird Pilot Captain Rich MacDougall.
