Airborne 11.23.20: Drone Pilot Arrest, AirVenture 2021!, Virtual WAI

Also: Vega Flight VV17, Expanded ISS Crew, XTI Aircraft-Verdego Aero, Helo Maritime Strike Squadron 37

Special agents with the FBI this week arrested a Hollywood man on a federal charge alleging that he recklessly operated a drone that crashed into a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter. 22-year-old Andrew Rene Hernandez,was arrested pursuant to a criminal complaint that charges him with one count of unsafe operation of an unmanned aircraft. Using data from the remains of the drone that hit an LAPD helicopter last September and other evidence, the Feds believe they have found the operator of the rogue aircraft. The drone damaged the LAPD aircraft and the pilot was forced to initiate an emergency landing. At last week's fall meeting – held in a virtual format – the EAA board of directors supported the ongoing planning efforts for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021, which will be held July

Airborne-Flight Training 11.04.20: Navy StandDown, Rich Stowell, Skyborne

Last week was a tough week for Naval aviation... Vice Adm. Kenneth White-sell, Commander, Naval Air Forces, directed all non-deployed U.S. Navy aviation units to conduct a safety stand down Oct. 26. This stand down provides an opportunity for aviation commands to focus on how to further improve operational risk management and risk mitigation across the Naval Aviation enterprise. This safety stand down follows an F/A-18E Super Hornet crash near Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake on Oct. 20, in which the pilot ejected safely, and a T-6B Texan 2 crash in Foley, Alabama, on Oct. 23, in which the two-person aircrew did not survive. No civilians were injured as a result of either incident. Rich Stowell Consulting recently released “Emily Flies the Tumblewing,” an aviation-themed Sc

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 4

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-n-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy) ANN E-I-C Note: Yeah… I ‘ve been slower than molasses on a winter’s day getting these out to you… but due to recent MAJOR upgrades and announcements (like the MASSIVE Roku and FireTV programs), there’s been precious little time to get all things done, that NEED to be done. However, here is Part 4... while Part Five (also complete) will follow in a few days and... Part Six should conclude this whole MASSIVE saga in a week or two… I hope. Once we were all ensconced in the Pipistrel Panthera, we proceeded with an altogether conventional fuel injected engine start, and completed a checklist dictated to me by Andy Chen, courtesy of ForeFflight. Apparently; this particular EFIS set up was not equipped with an MFD accessible checklist, which was not a problem since Andy is a big believer in u

FAA Boss Steve Dickson has signed an order that paves the way for the Boeing 737 MAX to return to commercial service. For nearly 2 years, FAA employees worked to identify and address reported safety issues that were blamed for the loss of 346 lives aboard Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302. Throughout the process, they cooperated closely with foreign counterparts, while Dickson personally took the recommended pilot training and piloted the Boeing 737 MAX, himself. "It's been heartbreaking," notes DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase Boss, Jana Filip. "We gave it every chance to happen, but conditions simply will not allow the proper measure of safety at this time... or in the near future." It was to be the fifth iteration of an annual Sport Aviation fly-in and tradeshow that was not o

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
