Aero-News: Quote of the Day (12.06.22)

“This limited grant and associated conditions will protect other satellite and terrestrial operators from harmful interference and maintain a safe space environment, promoting competition and protecting spectrum and orbital resources for future use. To address concerns about orbital debris and space safety, we limit this grant to 7,500 satellites only, operating at certain altitudes.” Source: From a short-sighted decision by the FCC effectively limiting the growth of the Starlink internet system...

Airborne 11.30.22: Envoy Offers $100K, ICAS Aids CAF, Powerline Mooney

Also: First Disabled ESA Astronaut, Extremists Disrupt Berlin, 737 Drag Reduction Kits, Chinese Drones in DC

Envoy is sweetening the deal for new hire pilots, offering up to $100,000 of bonus money for those with the kind of logbook the airline is looking for. For those pilots who receive a conditional job offer until December 31, 2022, the full amount of the bonuses (less taxes, of course) will be paid out on the day prior to the pilot's reporting to training. The catch? Pilots will have to have a good deal of Part 121 flight time under their belt. The recent tragedy that occurred at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow is receiving the generous attention and aid of the International Council of Air Shows... On behalf of its board, staff, and members, the International Council of Air Shows has offered its heartfelt condolences to the families of those individuals involved in the recent accident in Dallas and to our colleagues in the Commemorative Air Fo

Airborne 12.02.22: Bad CVR Precedent, Triple7 Honors Vets, Jet It v HondaJet

Also: 500th Licensed Space Launch, NetJets Adds Global 8000, Hartzell Prop Discounts, R-R Hydrogen Engine

On 25 November 2022, the Supreme Court of Canada fatuously allowed the release of the AC624 Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) transcripts for use in a class action proceeding—thereby sharply, and dangerously contradicting ICAO annex 13, which states plainly and persuasively that the sole objective of an accident investigation is, “the prevention of accidents and incidents without apportioning blame or liability.” A team of veterans are aiming for a world-record to support Gold Star families - skydiving all 7 continents in the span of a single week. The team behind it has begun raising awareness of their efforts, boosting a nonprofit that gives educational scholarships to the families of those lost in the line of duty. Jet It founder and CEO Glenn Gonzalez has excoriated his former employer, HondaJet, stating Jet It has done its &

Also: USAF FlightSim Outreach, Sam Graves, AMA Is Now CBO, Horizon Air Donates Q400

Despite airlines bragging about paying record bonuses for new pilots, ALPA has released data from the FAA that reportedly demonstrates that the United States is producing a record number of certificated airline pilots this year, with more pilots in the market today than there are jobs available. Supposedly... Envoy is sweetening the deal for new hire pilots, offering up to $100,000 of bonus money for those with the kind of logbook the airline is looking for.

Airborne 12.05.22: Archer Transitions, WAI Awards, BASE Jumper Survives

Also: Commemorative Air Force, Canadian Air-Crew’s Ordeal, CASA-212 Pilot, NTSB v Bell 407

Archer Aviation has announced that its Maker eVTOL made its first full-transition to wing-borne flight on 29 November 2022. Transition refers to the shifting of an aircraft’s lift-generation from one architecture and set of governing physical principles to another—most often from vertical flight, by dint of downward-vectored rotor thrust, to forward flight. omen in Aviation International (WAI) has announced its upcoming crop of 2023 inductees for its International Pioneer Hall of Fame. These trailblazers will be honored at the 34th Annual Women in Aviation International Conference, where they'll be honored with a ceremony and celebration dinner.

Airborne 11.28.22: Cirrus Jet Chute Save, Powered-Lift Regs, Safer E-ABs?

Also: NTSB Targets Niche Commercial Ops, Ingenuity Flight 34, CG Jayhawk Save, ASA Releases AIRCLASSICS Push-to-Talk Switch

With increasing frequency, the record of the Cirrus Vision Jet becomes all the more questionable. Friday morning, a Cirrus Vision Jet, N15VJ, went down shortly after takeoff from the Indianapolis Regional Airport. The pilot’s course of action took place early in the flight and barely a mile off the end of Runway 25. Video of the late 2020 aircraft, under the canopy, showed up swiftly on social media, and in one there seems to be a smoky trail above/behind the aircraft that might point to powerplant issues. The FAA has published a draft regarding an update to Air Carrier definitions that would add all powered-lift to existing definitions. The draft says that the rule is an "important step in the FAA's integration of new entrant aircraft in the National Airspace System”, paving the way for the expected wave of eVTO
