DoT Issues Final Rule Providing Clarity on Unfair and Deceptive Practices

Aviation Consumer Protection Gets Attention From DoT

DoT has issued a final rule codifying its longstanding definitions for the terms “unfair” and “deceptive” when the Department uses its statutory authority to prohibit unfair or deceptive practices by airlines or ticket agents. Most of the Department’s aviation consumer protection regulations, such as the Department’s tarmac delay rule and rules on overbooking, are based on the Department’s authority to prohibit unfair or deceptive practices. As defined by the final rule, a practice is “unfair” to consumers if it causes or is likely to cause substantial injury, which is not reasonably avoidable, and the harm is not outweighed by benefits to consumers or competition.

ISS: Muscle Study and Emergency Training Wrap Up Work Week

Crews Aboard The Station Regularly Practice Emergency Drills Such As Evacuations Or Medical Procedures

Currently, the main science focus aboard the International Space Station was a human research study observing an astronaut’s muscular system. All seven Expedition 64 crew members also gathered together Friday afternoon and familiarized themselves with emergency hardware. Flight Engineer Michael Hopkins kicked off the Myotones study Friday morning gathering hardware to collect measurements of his muscles and tendons. Crewmates Victor Glover and Shannon Walker also joined Hopkins for the muscle scans and measurements. Methods such as an ultrasound scan and blood draws are used to look at the biomechanical properties of muscles. Observations may improve performance and fitness in space as well as treatments for rehabilitation on Earth.

FAA Holding Public Meeting for Shuttle Landing Facility

Despite Years of Operations, More Hearings Required For Updated Programs

The FAA will hold a virtual public meeting to receive public comment on a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) at the Cape Canaveral Spaceport in Titusville, Fla. The meeting is Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020, from 5 to 7 p.m. EST. Virtual meeting instructions will be posted by Nov. 30, 2020. Space Florida, a state-chartered spaceport authority, currently holds a Launch Site Operator License to operate the SLF. It now intends to apply to the FAA for a Reentry Site Operator License (RSOL) to offer the SLF to commercial space operators and proposes to support up to a total of 17 reentry landings over the next five years (2021-2025).

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.

NTSB Prelim: Beech 99

According To The Pilot, The Landing At WVL Was Not “Firm Or Hard”

On October 14, 2020, about 0820 eastern daylight time, a Beechcraft 99, N499CZ, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Waterville Robert LaFleur Airport (WVL), Waterville, Maine. The commercial pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 cargo flight. According to the pilot, the landing at WVL was not “firm or hard” and during the subsequent landing roll, he used reverse thrust and minimal braking to slow the airplane to a “standard taxi speed.” As he initiated a right turn to exit the runway onto the taxiway, the airplane’s right main landing gear collapsed, resulting in substantial damage to the right wing.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (11.29.20): Expedite

Expedite Used by ATC when prompt compliance is required to avoid the development of an imminent situation.

ANN FAQ: Airborne Partnership Initiative Partner Input

It's A Collaboration, And We Want To Hear From YOUR Organization

It is no longer enough, in our view, to build a successful business... but to build a successful structure by which this business (and our valued partners) can collectively have a positive impact on the industry that wasn’t possible, individually.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (11.29.20)

"Our mission is to save lives and improve lifestyles by making delivery instant for everyone. Partnering with Vault Health for Flirtey drone delivery of COVID-19 test kits is another huge step toward our mission. Drone delivery of COVID-19 test kits is faster than traditional mail, enabling faster results for the customer and reducing the time where a person may have the potential to spread COVID-19 by 24-48 hours." Source: Flirtey Founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny, discussing his partnership with Vault Health -- with whom they are testing drone delivery of the first FDA authorized saliva test for COVID-19. Vault Health distributes a COVID-19 saliva test kit that can be used at home under supervision from a health professional through video call. Using Flirtey's drones to deliver the test kits to homes will eliminate exposure risks and create further convenience, especially for those who do not live in proximity to on-site testing locations. The Vault Health COVID-19 Test Kits have been added to Flirtey's existing drone d

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 5

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera, Part 5 ANN E-I-C Note: Slowly… but… surely… the flight test series progresses… to the point where we are nearly finished. Let’s look at low-speed handling and landing manners before we get ready for the final report card, in Part Six. Thanks for sticking with us through all this… it’s been a zoo at ANN HQ (in a good way—BUSY!), but I wanted to make sure this was all presented as expertly as possible… which took more time than I readily had. On to slow flight! I was really curious about this regime… as I had seen some amazing video of an IO-390 powered Panthera doing well in this regard, including aggressive multi-turn spins with all seats inhabited! While the commercial Panthera is NOT recommended for spins, I still got a lot of info, and insight/confidence from seeing that demo. And yes, i lioked what I saw. OK… to do slow flight, y
