Airborne 05.16.22: Enstrom Bought-Again, Republic v FAA, NTSB Blames FAA

Also: FAA Funds Airport Improvements, WAI Membership Changes, USCG On Launches, United Airlines

Chuck Surack, founder of Surack Enterprises, has announced that he has purchased The Enstrom Helicopter Corporation of Menominee, Michigan, to rebuild the Enstrom brand into one of the leading American-made helicopter manufacturers as it once was. In a letter to the Enstrom leadership team, Surack shared his appreciation to the employees for their devotion and dedication over the years and particularly during the last few difficult months.

According to Mr. Lannie O’Bannion, Senior VP, Global Sales & Flight Operations, “loyal Citation customers inspire us to continually invest in bringing the latest design and technology to our product line.” Fuel pricing is skyrocketing... again. Word on the ramp is that Jet A prices, in some areas, equal or exceed that of 100LL, regardless of whether you’re at the pump or the truck. Those whose winged chariots run on 100LL are probably accustomed to seeing bargain basement Jet A prices that cater to the few shiny birds that choose to stop by, versus the prices a piston-driver may typically see. SpaceX is going to keep waiting on the ever-tar
