Airborne 03.05.21: Starship SN10 Lands, EAA/FAA Virtual Summit, Bearhawk 5

Also: USCG PIlot Rescue, Gulfstream G280, Kalitta Pilots Approve, Supersonic NetJets?

On Wednesday, March 3, Starship serial number (SN10) successfully completed SpaceX’s third high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from a SpaceX test site in Cameron County, Texas. Similar to the high-altitude flight tests of Starship SN8 and SN9, SN10 was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee – approximately 10 km in altitude. SN10 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent. General aviation safety, aircraft certification, and the MOSAIC initiative were among the numerous topics discussed as top officials from EAA and the FAA wrapped up the Winter Recreational Aviation Summit, again held i

Airborne-Flight Training 03.04.21: Master Instructor, EAA Air Academy, Skyborne

Also: CAE Acquiring L3Harris, USHST Report, FAA Vaccine Report, FRASCA Expands

The original and highly regarded Master Instructor program, which arguably set the standard of excellence in aviation education when first introduced in 1997, has settled comfortably in the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) nest as the Master Instructor Continuing Education Program (MICEP) for all aviation educators. The original Master Instructor Program, written and introduced by professional educators Sandy and JoAnn Hill of Colorado, celebrates its 24th year representing what then-FAA Administrator Marion Blakey called "the best the right seat has to offer" in aviation. The EAA Air Academy will remain on hiatus until 2022, with this summer's sessions in Oshkosh canceled due to the difficulty of scheduling multiple weeks of education sessions involving young people from throughout the country.

Airborne-Special Edition 02.11.21: Aviation Safety Resources' Larry Williams

Also: Next-Gen Airplane Parachutes, Lighter, Smaller, and More Cost-Effective, Coming Soon

ANN’s Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell has an interesting background as a test pilot... But one of the most exciting programs he was part of …..was flying and testing the first early generation of emergency airframe parachute systems on several different Cessnas, while working with two separate development programs. The technology has progressed so much since then, but the next generation of airframe recovery parachute systems is undergoing preparation for the civilian market and beyond... promising better/lighter materials, small sizes, and lower costs. Our Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell interviewed Aviation Safety Resources’ CEO and President Larry Williams to get the inside scoop on what we’ll be seeing from ASR in the very near future -- and take our words for it, ASR seems ready to sh

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (03.06.21)

Aero Linx: The Classic Jet Aircraft Association (CJAA) The Classic Jet Aircraft Association (CJAA) is a federally chartered, tax exempt 501(c)7 organization with headquarters in Maryland. CJAA is organized into a nine-member board supported by experts in finance, safety and administrative functions. Our membership is our greatest asset. Coming from both military and civilian backgrounds, they all share a common desire to preserve our rights to fly Classic Jets. Our members can be found on the field fiddling with their airplane, or in company board rooms, public schools, ATC facilities and directing traffic. But the best place to find our members is at the Convention or a Jet Blast, where they're only too willing to share and learn with each other.

ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it. Fortunately for us, we realized early on we couldn't be everywhere at once -- curse the laws of physics! -- so we came up with the idea of News-Spies. Just as the title suggests, a News-Spy is a reader who notices a news item -- be it in the newspaper, on television, or something they came across at their own airport, town hall, at the office water cooler or just by walking down the street -- basically, any item a reader may think is newsworthy, that pertains to the world of aviation.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (03.06.21)

"When it comes to wheeled vehicles on other planets, there are few first-time events that measure up in significance to that of the first drive. This was our first chance to 'kick the tires' and take Perseverance out for a spin. The rover's six-wheel drive responded superbly. We are now confident our drive system is good to go, capable of taking us wherever the science leads us over the next two years." Source: Anais Zarifian, Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mobility test bed engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, commenting on the first movements of ther Mars Rover on the surface of Mars.

Airborne 03.03.21: DJI FPV!, Hartzell STC's Voyager, Loyal Wingman Flies

Also: Samaritan's Purse DC-8, X-57 Readies, CAE Acquiring L3Harris MilBiz, Federal Air Surgeon

DJI has launched a new type of drone -- an FPV drone that combines the first-person view and performance of racing drones, the camera capabilities of traditional drones, and an optional innovative single-handed motion controller that allows pilots to control the drone with just hand movements. The DJI FPV ecosystem includes the drone, goggles, a dedicated remote controller, and a new intuitive motion controller option that steers the drone based on the movement of your hand. Hartzell has expanded the eligibility of its popular three-blade aluminum Voyager props. Voyager is now STC approved for the large fleet of Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft, powered by Continental 520 and 550 engines. The Voyager, which has reportedly been well received by bush pilots, was previously approved for Cessna's A185E/F Skyw
