No aviation dictionary could include the word ‘HERO’ and not mention Dick Cole.

Tuesday marked the end of an era when Lt. Col Dick Cole, who was Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle's co-pilot on the storied raid on Tokyo, passed away in San Antonio, TX at the age of 103. Cole was the very last surviving member of the Doolittle Raiders. On the premise of EASA's new basic regulation, permitting for MTOW of 1,322 pounds for microlights in Europe, Germany is the first country to implement the new technical LTFUL 2018 regulation. Through a collaboration between the German DULV and Pipistrel, Pipistrel is set to become the first to obtain new microlight certifications under these rules. The type certificate of first of Pipistrel’s series of new German certifications is being presented this week at AERO Friedrichshafen in Germany. There is a completely updated King Instrument rating course. The all-HD course was completed in March of 2019, and includes extensive new content with every lesson reshot in HD video. This is the latest edition of the Instrument Rating course that pilots have been using for decades to prepare for their FAA written exam. This online interactive video course includes compatibility with the free King Companion App for iPad and iPhone. The App allows users to download lessons to their device when they have an internet connection, allowing them to watch the lessons any time—even while offline.
