ANN's Daily Aero-Term (08.15.22): Option Approach

Option Approach An approach requested and conducted by a pilot which will result in either a touch-and-go, missed approach, low approach, stop-and-go, or full stop landing. Pilots should advise ATC if they decide to remain on the runway, of any delay in their stop and go, delay clearing the runway, or are unable to comply with the  instruction(s).

(The NTSB) "determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be: The unoccupied airplanes exceedance of the critical angle of attack which resulted in a stall, subsequent inverted spin, and impact with terrain." Source: The NTSB, in their Probable Cause findings, after investigating a bizarre, misguided 'Plane Swap" stunt that resulted in the destruction of one aircraft.

Airborne 08.08.22: MOSAIC Delays, Savage Norden STOL, Boeing Strike Averted

Also: Astronaut Training, F-15 at 50, Canadian ADS-B Mandate, Thrust Flight

The Annual Oshkosh “Meet the Boss” event was one of the most sparsely attended editions we’ve seen to date… seemingly due to the fact that word was out that the FAA had disappointing news… and they did. What everyone wanted to hear, was positive news about MOSAIC… a program that would determine the future of light aircraft. A working version, if not the NPRM itself, was previously promised for this year but due to the politics of separating the program into segments that set unmanned aircraft and autonomous vehicles apart from the pseudo-LSA sport aircraft community, it needed revision. SportairUSA, the Arkansas-based FAA certified Repair Station and aircraft and components distributor, has announced that the American version of Zlin’s new Savage Norden STOL aircraft has received FAA approval in the category of Special Light Sp

Airborne 08.12.22: Snowbird Grounding, AEA 2Q Report, Paul Allen’s Warbirds

Also: $10-Million eVTOL Deposit, Clay Lacy Expands, VNY Runway Reopens, Artemis Launch Date

The CT-114 Tutor aircraft flown by the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Snowbirds flight demonstration squadron have been ordered grounded until a deliberate, detailed, and broad airworthiness risk-assessment can be completed. The move was ordered by the Operational Airworthiness Authority for the RCAF, Maj. Gen. Iain Huddleston. AEA represents nearly 1,300 member companies in more than forty countries. Their Avionics Market Report for 2022’s second-quarter showed an 11.7% increase in avionics sales over the previous quarter, and a 19.9% increase over the same period in 2021. AEA president and CEO Mike Adamson states: "It is encouraging to see sales continue to climb, up nearly 16% compared to the first six months of 2021..." Paul Allen was many things: an entrepreneur; a tech mogul; the owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers; a phi

Airborne 08.10.22: TL 3000 Sirius, Boeing PTO Forecast, SAF Controversies

Also: Flight Design Update, F/A-18E/F SLM, Flight Delays Worsen, SWA Attdt Hurt by Hard Ldg

In all the hub-bub of readying for Oshkosh, we missed the chance to publish our first impressions of a recent flight test series using the TL Sport Aircraft TL 3000 Sirius... A slick high-wing tractor tri-gear produced by a Czech company, TL Ultralight. Using a variety of 912 and 914 series engines for power (with the 915 not far away), the 112-136 mph Sirius was a machine that, for some reason, we had overlooked to this point... to our regret now that ANN Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell, has flown the bird -- and liked it-- a lot. Boeing has made public the results of its much-anticipated Pilot and Technician Outlook (PTO)—a work that peers twenty-years into the future of the aerospace industry and portends what profits or perils lie therein. Happily, Boeing’s forecast calls for tremendous growth throughout the commercial aviation sector. Between

Airborne-Flight Training 08.11.22: Thrust Flight, Delta Propel, PTO Forecast

Also: Astronaut Training, Taiwan Pilot Shortage, I Hart Flying, USAF and Aptima

Thrust Flight has earned FAA Examining Authority over the Commercial Single-Engine Land facet of its Part 141-approved training curriculum. Examining Authority enables designated academy personnel to perform check-rides for enrolled students pursuing Commercial Pilot Certification. The U.S. is in the midst of a nationwide shortage of Designated Pilot Examiners—pilots authorized by the FAA to perform check-rides in the stead of FAA examiners. Delta is among the world’s oldest, largest, and most profitable airlines. Delta's Propel program transforms baggage-handlers and ticket-agents into airline pilots. Viewed through a more refined lens, the program—which was founded in 2018—allows Delta personnel who hold Private Pilot Certificates and have been in the carrier’s employ for more than three-years to undergo a screening process and—if

Airborne-UnCrewed 08.09.22: VerdeGo Aero, Skylift UAVs, FAA Drone Regs Upheld

Also: NTSB Updates Definition, Masten Space Systems, Artemis Payload, Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100

VerdeGo Aero, the Daytona Beach-based manufacturer of hybrid-electric aerospace power-plants, has succeeded in raising $12-million in a Series “A” funding campaign spearheaded by RTX Ventures (Raytheon Technologies). The monies will finance the expansion of VerdeGo’s operation and accelerate the development of emergent hybrid-propulsion technologies. Founded in 2017 by the grandson of Charles Lindbergh—yes, THAT Charles Lindbergh—VerdeGo initially set out to develop its own line of eVTOL aircraft. In 2018, however, the company executed a decisive pivot, shifting its objective from aircraft-maker to hybrid-propulsion pioneer. Skylift, the U.K.-based maker of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) founded by a pilot, a sailor, and software developer, is making ready to demonstrate the ability of its drones to deliver prescri

If It Isn't Broke... FAA Moves to Dynamic System

EAD, AD, and Biweekly ADs Moved Over to Dynamic Regulatory System

The FAA has announced the impending migration of Airworthiness Directives to the Dynamic Regulatory System, or DRS, that will result in all ADs being published on the new system from August 16th, 2022. Mind you; we're not sure what was wrong with the old system... the very same that nearly all of aviation was quite used to. The change will allow the administration to simplify the record keeping and dissemination of documents contained within its Regulatory Guidance Library.

Joby Aviation Expands DOD Affiliation

USAF and USMC Partnerships Advance eVTOL

Joby Aviation, the California-based, Toyota-backed designer and builder of Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles, is expanding its existing contract with the U.S. Air Force’s Agility Prime program—an initiative the service launched in 2020 to experiment, test, and generally hasten the development of eVTOL for cross commercial and military use. Joby’s Department of Defense (DOD) contract now includes a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, which will test the suitability of Joby’s eVTOL to non-combat missions such as resupply, relocation of personnel, and emergency medical response.

NASA Announces Astronaut Corps Ready For Artemis

Moon Project to Draw Upon Whole Corps of all Flight-Qualified Astronauts

NASA has announced that the entire body of qualified astronauts in current service with the agency stand as possible selections for the upcoming Artemis program. The change was a bit of a surprise and contravenes the impression given to the space community 2 years earlier when NASA announced the group of candidates it intended to draw upon for Artemis staffing.
