Airborne 06.14.13: FAA Extorts $447K From EAA, Eurocopter's X3, TIGHAR Denials

Also: Hadfield Retires, Dornier Do 17, Chinook Contract, Boeing Forecast, Wright Memorial

We can't say that this was unexpected but EAA has confirmed that it has entered, reluctantly, into a one time agreement with the FAA to pay them for services required to conduct the annual fly-in.

 

EAA has revealed that, "Facing a spectrum of unpalatable options, EAA today finalized a one-time agreement with the FAA to cover nearly $450,000 in expenses related to air traffic control services at the 2013 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in, which begins on July 29." The Eurocopter X3 hybrid helicopter made history recently by attaining speed milestones of 255 knots in level flight and 263 knots during a descent. With these two successes, the X3 surpasses the unofficial speed record for a helicopter. TIGHAR, The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, is denying charges brought in a lawsuit that they have found Amelia Earhart's airplane but continue to raise funds under thereby false pretenses. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
