Airborne 06.14.19: Falcon Heavy, Electric Speed Record, GPS Failure

Also: CFM56 Engine Fleet, E-175 Makes 2 Emergency Landings, E-175 Makes Two Emergency Ldgs, 737 MAX Pilots Let Go

When SpaceX next launches a Falcon Heavy booster, currently set for June 22, it will use two previously-flow engine cores.

The flight, part of the DOD's Space Test Program-2, will be the first time Falcon Heavy has flown on re-used boosters, and the third Falcon Heavy flight overall. The launch is currently set for 11:30 p.m. EDT from Launch Complex 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center. The two side boosters will be the previously-flown engines. They were used to launch the Arabsat-6A satellite in April. The cores, which are the more powerful "Block 5" variant of the booster, landed back at the Kennedy Space Center after the launch. Rolls-Royce anticipates that its ACCEL ... “Accelerating the Electrification of Flight” ... airplane will attempt to break the speed record for an electric airplane next year, and the plane is also looking like a contender in the Reno Air Race. The ACCEL is currently undergoing flight trials at Gloucestershire airport outside Cheltenham, England. The program is intended to pioneer a third wave of aviation in support of Rolls-Royce’s strategy to champion electrification. Regional carriers operating for American, United and Delta Airlines were forced to cancel hundreds of flights over last weekend due to an issue with their GPS systems. The FAA issued an advisory saying "Certain aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins GPS 4000-100 and select ADS-B Our GPS receivers are indicating "ADS-B Fail, unavailable, TCAS Fail or Transponder Fail messages. "The FAA command center (DCC) is suspending pre-coordination with DCC of those aircraft impacted by the Rockwell Collins GPS issue that have working transponders.
