Aero-News: Quote of the Day (11.24.20)

"The development of airworthy, durable, and reliable unmanned aircraft is a crucial step forward for this innovative sector.

Romanowski, director of Aircraft Certification Service Policy and Innovation, commenting as the FAA published airworthiness criteria for the proposed certification of 10 different Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or drones as special class aircraft.

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

Classic: Aero-TV: An Expert’s Evaluation - Jack Pelton at NBAA2015

From 2016: Fresh & Enlightening Views On BizAv From EAA’s New Boss…

In this interesting and informative interview with EAA’s Jack Pelton at NBAA2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, asked Pelton for his opinion of this year’s convention and to express his thoughts on the state of business aviation as a whole. In the process of the interview, we are reminded of the incredibly strong background Pelton has in the business aviation world. Because of Pelton’s position as EAA’s CEO, he is able to stand on the outside of business aviation and look at it from a highly objective viewpoint. This video captures Pelton’s interest in all of aviation and it also illuminates his desire to work with other organizations as he strives to move EAA forward.
