At 12:12:23 UTC last Thursday, Action Aviation Chairman Hamish Harding, Astronaut Terry Virts and crew made history by beating the world record for any aircraft flying over the North and South poles in a Qatar Executive Gulfstream G650ER aircraft. The mission’s record flight time is 46 hours, 39 minutes and 38 seconds. “Our mission, titled One More Orbit, pays homage to the Apollo 11 moon landing achievement, by highlighting how humans push the boundaries of aeronautics,” says Harding. Pipistrel, is set to once again “electri-fly” the annual EAA AirVenture Fly-In and Tradeshow in Oshkosh, WI. Pipistrel will be displaying an extensive selection of aircraft, with a special emphasis on revolutionary, new, electrically-powered, training aircraft. All this -- an

Aero-TV: The Sporty's Foundation - Giving Back To The GA Community

It's All About The Future of General Aviation

We talk about the general aviation community, and that’s what it is – not just pilots and aircraft owners, but all the skilled technicians that support them. With glass cockpits, composite technology, and new powerplants, maintenance and support are all the more necessary. The Sporty’s Foundation strives to reach young people at the earliest possible age. Since its inception, EAA’s Next Step has been the primary recipient of Foundation funds. This program ensures that every EAA Young Eagle has a place to go next after the initial spark from their Young Eagle ride.

Airborne 07.12.19: 737 MAX RTS?, Virgin Galactic Merges, UK Pilot Record

Also: Teenagers Fly Sling 4, Infrastructure Grants, Turtle On The Tarmac, Focus On Aviation Safety

EASA has sent a letter to the FAA and Boeing outlining five major requirements the agency says need to be addressed before it will allow the Boeing 737 MAX to return to service in Europe. The issues identified by EASA parallel the FAA's concerns. The FAA said that the agency "confirm(s) the specific matters being raised by EASA but said: “The FAA continues to work closely with other validating civil aviation authorities on our review of Boeing’s certification documentation for the 737 MAX. This process involves regular communications among all parties" but did not confirm the items specified by EASA. Virgin Galactic and Social Capital Hedosophia, have announced their upcoming merger, with SCH owning up to approximately 49% of the company. Upon closing of the transaction, w

Airborne 07.10.19: One More Orbit, WomenVenture 12, Young Eagles & Sporty’s

Also: Saudi Drops 737 MAX, Tamarack Aerospace Update, Restrictions On Drones, NATA

‘One More Orbit’ is a multinational attempt to break the world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the earth via both poles, in a Qatar Executive Gulfstream G650ER ultra long-range business jet. The record is being attempted during the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Apollo 11 moon landing, as a tribute to the past, present, and future of space exploration. The team will launch and complete the record attempt at Space Florida's Launch and Landing Facility (the former Shuttle Landing Facility) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, where Apollo 11 launched their historic mission 50 years ago. The mission started at 09:32 EDT, the same time as Apollo 11, on July 9. For the twelfth year, women attending EAA AirVenture will enjoy a show within a show as a host of WomenVenture activities take place

AMA Drone Report 07.11.19: AMA Exec Council, DJI Objects, More FAA Restrictions

Also: Oshkosh Awaits!, MMC Partners W/Yuneec, Drone Strike Assessment, No Drone... Turtle!

Late last month, the AMA Executive Council and the Government Affairs team took a trip to Washington, D.C. to advocate for our hobby. Throughout these meetings, AMA emphasized their commitment to safety and education -- also highlighting examples of how flying model aircraft is a pathway to STEM-related to careers and the work we do to support local charities. Importantly, AMA discussed the upcoming FAA rule-makings for recreational UAS, and were encouraged by the positive dialogue. The FAA recognizes the importance of the model aviation community and wants to continue our longstanding partnership. On Capitol Hill, members of Congress pledged support to AMA and stand ready to weigh-in with the FAA on our behalf, as needed. DJI has released an open letter in which it expresses "deep disappointment" with

Airborne-Unmanned 07.09.19: NUAIR-Flytrex, Airbus Delivers, Impossible Aerospace

Also: Oshkosh Coming Soon!, Drone Investment, DJI Objects, VerdeGo Aero

Following tests completed by Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) at the New York UAS Test Site in Rome, New York, Israel-based drone company Flytrex, has had the parachute on its package delivery drones validated as compliant with industry standards. This is the second parachute standard validation performed by NUAIR. Currently, the FAA prohibits most drones from being flown directly over people. Professional drone operators can apply for a waiver from that restriction if they can demonstrate they have robust safety mitigations in place including having a validated parachute. Airbus and the Hauts-de-France region have signed a partnership agreement to assess the economic development potential of air deliveries on a regional scale. The Hauts-de-France region aims to become Europe’s logistics hub. Regional
