Airborne 09.21.18: Paul Allen's MonsterPlane, Reno Air Races, Diamond Doubles

Also: Aviators Indicted, Hartzell Appointment, World's First 777, ASTM Parachutes For Drones

Stratolaunch Systems founder Paul Allen has put his mark on the fuselage of the enormous airplane being flight tested as a horizontal launch system.

Allen tweeted photos this week of the Stratolauncher, being built by Scaled Composites, emblazoned with "Stratolaunch: A Paul G. Allen Company" on the left fuselage. While there had been hopes of flight testing the airplane this summer, there are still three taxi tests on the schedule, delaying the first flight of the aircraft into the fall at the earliest. The results from the 2018 edition of the Reno Air Races are in, following the completion of the Gold races. The Gold races are essentially the final, and all heat winners are named champions in their division. Over the past ten years, the event has attracted more than 1 million spectators and generated more than $600 million for the region’s economy. The event features six racing classes, a large display of static aircraft and several military and civil flight demonstrations. Diamond plans to double production at its London, Ontario, Canada facility next year bringing the number of airplanes produced to 150 and adding about 100 workers to the payroll. The plant will manufacture about 75 airplanes this year. Diamond's CEO in London Scott McFadzean believes that the market in China is about to "explode", and other demand is growing worldwide. McFadzean said that the company is now building for the global market like it did previously for the North American market. He said that the Chinese market is "huge compared to Western countries." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
