President-elect, Donald Trump set the world of aviation and the media slightly off center when he tweeted the following: “Boeing is building a brand-new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!” Then, during an impromptu television interview following his tweet, Mr. Trump said "Well, the plane is totally out of control. It's gonna be over 4 billion dollars - and, I think it's ridiculous. I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number. We want Boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money." Here’s a report for our aviation minded friends who are looking for an excuse to travel to a beautiful location. From September 7 through the 16th, 2017, Gruyères, Switzerland will h

Also: Chelan Seaplanes Debacle, Electrifying E-Fest, Delta's New Airbus, Orion Update, ACSS NXT-700, Flyht, Duncan Aviation

The newest SpaceShipTwo flew free of its mother ship for the first time, just a few days ago. VSS Unity was piloted by Mark Stucky and Dave Mackay. Over the course of the 1 hour 20 minute flight, of which 10 minutes was the free flight of SpaceShipTwo, the pilots, mission controllers, and ground crews collected valuable data. The test flight was the fifth flight of VSS Unity following several recent Captive Carry flights. Tecnam has introduced what they say is a substantially updated and improved Mark-2 version of the company’s popular light sport eligible P2002 Sierra. The Tecnam P2002 Sierra Mark-2 retains all of its flying qualities, but now offers an improved cabin for greater comfort, top level avionics, new paint colors and interior options, and a

Airborne 12.06.16: SpaceX Launching Soon!, 787 AD, DJI Inspire 2

Also: P-51C 'Tuskegee Airmen', Aero-Calendar, EASA Mandate, Master Instructor, 737 MAX Thrust Reverser, LaMia Airline, Flying Colours

SpaceX could return to flight by the middle of the month if the FAA approves its next launch, according to SpaceX customer Iridium Communications. The launch is scheduled on December 16 at 12:36 p.m. Pacific Standard Time from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, according to an Iridium news release. An Airworthiness Directive issued by the FAA last week requires repetitive cycling of either the airplane electrical power or the power to the three flight control modules. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that all three fly control modules might simultaneously reset if continuously powered on for 22 days on all Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. A reset of the flight control modules, if not corrected, could result in flight control surface

Airborne 12.05.16: AutoGyro Certified, Police Seize Drone, GoPro Job Cuts

Also: Aldrin Evacuated, Shark US, Lufthansa, NASA, ESA's New Orbiter, FLIR Systems, Esterline

The expression, “breaking news,” seems to be highly overused nowadays, but to hear that an autogyro has just received FAA type certification is truly - breaking news. Even better, this aircraft is eligible for operation by sport pilots. The original design of the Calidus dates back to 2009. Since then it has been certified in numerous countries around the world. The company claims cruise performance to be in the range of 95 to 110 miles per hour with a takeoff distance ranging from 30-300 feet. A Sacramento man who flew his DJI Mavic drone over the Winter Wonderland festival at California Exposition last month had his aircraft confiscated by the Sacramento Police.
