Aero-News: Quote of the Day (04.10.21)

"The investigation found that ingestion of a single, small bird into the engine of the aircraft ‘Snowbird 11’ following take-off resulted in a compressor stall and a loss of thrust. Upon loss of power, the pilot initiated a climb straight ahead and then a turn back towards the airport. During this manoeuver, the aircraft entered into an aerodynamic stall and the pilot gave the order to abandon the aircraft." Source: A portion of the accident report that summarized the findings of last year's tragic accident that severely injured one Snowbird team member and killed another.

Also: Western Global Pilots, Tamarack Touts Aiken, Metro Delivers EC145E, FRASCA On TH-73A Program

One of the new aircraft you might see at Sun ‘n Fun next week is an exceptionally stout Czech LSA by the name of the Skyleader 600. Distributed by SkyleaderUSA’s Michael Tomazin, the Rotax powered two seater is not your average bargain basement LSA... and boasts some pretty extensive and well-thought-out refinements, including a very slick canopy mechanism and one of the neatest trailing edge wing-steps we've ever seen. UPS, together with its UPS Flight Forward subsidiary, has reported plans to purchase electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft from Beta Technologies (BETA) to augment its air service for select small and mid-size markets. These aircraft will take off and land on-property at UPS facilities in a quiet fashion, reducing time-in-transit, vehicle emissions, and op

Also: Citation 560XL #1000, Erickson & USFS, NC Airports Funded, KC-390 Refueling

EAA has reported that the FAA has published draft guidance to implement an optional task-based Phase I program for Experimental Amateur-Built (E-AB) aircraft. Under the program, once an aircraft completes a flight test plan that meets FAA standards, Phase I is complete. The standard 25- or 40-hour flight test period for Phase I will remain an option for all E-AB, and Experimental Light-Sport (E-LSA) continues to carry a 5-hour test period. At 4:50 a.m. (AKST), last Monday, the Alaskan North American Aerospace Defense Region, in support of NORAD, positively identified and tracked two Tu-142 Russian maritime patrol aircraft entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone. The Russian aircraft, which are currently operating in international airspace, have not entered United States or Canadian sovereign airspace
