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

Rolling Along... NASA's Perseverance Drives on Mars for First Time

Regular Commutes Extending 656 Feet Or More Are Expected

NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover performed its first drive on Mars March 4, covering 21.3 feet (6.5 meters) across the Martian landscape. The drive served as a mobility test that marks just one of many milestones as team members check out and calibrate every system, subsystem, and instrument on Perseverance. Once the rover begins pursuing its science goals, regular commutes extending 656 feet or more are expected. "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," said Anais Zarifian, Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mobility test bed engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California.

Cessna T206H Turbo Stationair Turned into IMSAR Platform

First-Of-Its-Kind Aircraft Added To The IMSAR Fleet

To expand its radar testing capabilities and increase imaging services, IMSAR LLC recently added a first-of-its-kind aircraft to the IMSAR fleet. Appropriately named "Magnum," IMSAR's new multi-sensor Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform is built around Textron Aviation's Cessna T206H Turbo Stationair. The Cessna T206H has a maximum Useful Load of around 1500 lbs, a modern avionics suite, and a low overall operating cost. Its special missions configuration incorporates several custom-designed and FAA-approved interior and exterior modifications, making Magnum a capable ISR aircraft that still retains a "normal category" designation.

Aero-Associations Speak Out Against Intentional GPS Interference

Aviation Community Has Not Received A Response From The FAA or DOD To A 2018 RTCA Report

NBAA is among the major aviation organizations that have sent a letter to the FAA and DOD, expressing concern about restrictions to airspace and airports caused by the intentional jamming of GPS and are seeking mitigations on the operational impact of these interference events. In a letter to the FAA and DOD, the organizations recognized the importance of DOD’s mission and the agency’s need to simulate the loss of GPS as part of its effort to defend and maintain the global navigation system. However, as aero-groups noted, the NAS has become increasingly reliant on GPS as the primary source of navigation and aircraft system functionality, while reducing reliance on ground-based navigational infrastructure.

Classic Aero-TV: Sandel KingAir Avilon -- An Uncommon/Disruptive Development

From 2015 (YouTube version): One of NBAA 2015's Big Surprises Promises Serious Disruption In The Cockpit Upgrade Spectrum

While at NBAA2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, talks with Gerry Block, the President and CEO of Sandel Avionics. Sandel, among other things, is in the business of making good airplanes even better through a retrofit of cockpit avionics. At NBAA2015, they introduced a product called Avilon, which is a completely new panel installation for King Air aircraft. Block said the purpose of Avilon is to improve cockpit avionics as we move into NextGen and the navigation systems that are part of the new way of doing business in our airspace system.
