Airborne 12.04.17: 10000th RV!!!, EAA Scholarships, ALPA v Drones

Van’s Aircraft tells ANN that David Porter recently reported the first flight of his RV-7 and became the official 10,000th Van's RV aircraft to transition from a collection of parts and take to the skies.

Vans says it’s "official" because there are certainly more than 10,000 flying, but they simply don't know about all of them. The stats are intriguing... Porter's Serial number 74311 (the 4311th RV-7/7A empennage kit sold) is the 1,662nd RV-7 to fly. It’s fairly typically equipped for a modern RV, with a Lycoming O-360-A1A, and Hartzell blended airfoil prop. His first flight was on November 24th, 2017. More than $135,000 in financial aid opportunities for flight training, college aviation studies, and EAA residence camps are now open for applications through EAA’s scholarship programs. Many of the scholarships, especially those for college studies, have a deadline of January 31, 2018. Following the release of an FAA directed study showing that unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) may damage aircraft more than bird strikes during collisions, Capt. Tim Canoll, president of the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l renewed the union's call for Congress to give the FAA the authority to regulate hobby drones, though the narrative he invokes is not altogether correct nor firmly verified. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
