Airborne 09.21.17: Pilot Runs 4 Senate, Seaplane Base Hit, Sonaca 200

Also: Mitchell Airport, AMA, Plane v Elk, Ariane 6, Lakeville Airport, Alaska Airlines

Airshow and test pilot Bob Bishop is launching a run for the United States Senate in 2018. He kicked off his campaign Monday with an event in Tucson which included a static display of a BD-5J campaign plane dubbed "Freedom".

Bishop started his business career at the age of 13 while living in Phoenix, AZ. Flying and excellence have been his passions. "Being in service to others is his primary goal. He is a compassionate capitalist, who puts people before profits," the website states. Bishop built several examples of the BD-5J. He purchased 20 kits when they were first introduced, and some are still flying today. Over 300 people in Arizona are reportedly now employed due to his early investing activities. The Tavares Seaplane Base (FA1) and Marina in Lake County, FL was badly damaged by what authorities believe was a small tornado spawned by Hurricane Irma as it churned up the west coast of the state last Monday. There were some 25 boats piled up that would need to be untangled and assessed. It was not reported how many, if any, airplanes were damaged or destroyed by the storm. Sonaca Aircraft’s first customers have been invited to test the Sonaca 200, a new two-seater single-engine aircraft designed for training and leisure flights. The Belgian Flight School (BFS) has confirmed an initial order. The Sonaca 200 reportedly demonstrates good maneuverability in each flight phase (climb, descent, turns with steep bank angle and unpowered approaches). Pierre Van Wetter, Sonaca Aircraft’s Co-Founder & Chief Commercial Officer said about 30 pre-orders have been recorded. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
