Airborne 06.12.19: Belite Fire, Qantas Pilot Academy, Hummel Fly-In

Also: Purdue Aviatrixes, Astronaut Good Retires, Mitsubishi Negotiating W/Bombardier, New KGSO Tower

The folks at Belite Aircraft were alerted late Friday night to a fire by local emergency services personnel that was taking place at their factory.

James and Karen Wiebe reported that, “Arriving a few minutes later, the scene was filled with fire trucks and emergency vehicles and swarms of firemen and water hoses. It appears that the fire started at our CNC router dust collection system. Intense smoke filled the building, and my office and much of our building contents was destroyed. The back area of the building (in the production area), everything higher than 6' off the ground was melting or burned. Much of our raw inventory and all of our older collections of parts for older aircraft designs (for instance, procub and ultracub) was upstairs. Applications are being accepted for the new Qantas Group Pilot Academy, due to open its doors in Toowoomba, Australia, in September. The Academy is part of the Qantas Group’s strategy to build a long-term talent pipeline for its own airlines. Estimates suggest that 790,000 more pilots will be required globally over the next 20 years. If you're curious about Hummel airplanes, you've got a chance to get up-close and personal with the planes, pilots and company representatives at the Hummel Gathering July 6th at Williams County Airport in northwest Ohio. The company will display the UltraCruiser, H5 and Hummelbird and is open to anyone that just enjoys aviation. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
