Airborne 07.10.20: Mother Of ALL Cubs, Airshows!, Bristell B8 High-Wing

Also: Summering... On Mars, Hartzell Engine Tech, 2020 FAI General Conference, Gogo Inflight

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for the backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. Our friends at the International Council of AirShows have pointed out a bright spot for the what's left of the 2020 airshow season... As the likely first air show of the sea

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (07.10.20): Air Traffic Clearance

Air Traffic Clearance An authorization by air traffic control for the purpose of preventing collision between known aircraft, for an aircraft to proceed under specified traffic conditions within controlled airspace. The pilot-in-command of an aircraft may not deviate from the provisions of a visual flight rules (VFR) or instrument flight rules (IFR) air traffic clearance except in an emergency or unless an amended clearance has been obtained. Additionally, the pilot may request a different clearance from that which has been issued by air traffic control (ATC) if information available to the pilot makes another course of action more practicable or if aircraft equipment limitations or company procedures forbid compliance with the clearance issued. Pilots may also request clarification or amendment, as appropriate, any time a clearance is not fully understood, or considered unacceptable because of safety of flight. Controllers should, in such instances and to the extent of operational practicality
