Airborne 04.29.22: Electric DA40, NTSB v Cirrus, Young Eagles Program

Also: Qatar A321neo Cancellation, Auterion & Drone Rescue Systems, GAO F-35 Report, Travel Demand 

Safran recently signed an agreement with Diamond Aircraft to provide an electric motor for the eDA40, an offshoot of the certified four-place DA40 aircraft.

Pairing the popular DA40 with the smart ENGINeUS 100 electric motor is expected to deliver 130 kilowatts at maximum takeoff power.  Safran and Diamond expect certification of the electric motor by mid 2023 and basic EASA certification for the eDA40 by the end of 2023 or early 2024. Cirrus has goofed again. The NTSB has published a distressing report for Cirrus SR22T owners,  recommending action on a possible engine power loss on takeoff. In the report, they reference 6 separate accidents involving Cirrus SR22T airplanes which lost engine power during the takeoff climb, in which 5 showed excessive fuel flow rates as high as 50 gph. At the upcoming EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022, the 30th anniversary of the Young Eagles program will be commemorated and recognized during flights, forums, and other activities during the week. The Young Eagles is the largest youth program ever created, where over 50,000 EAA-member pilots have flown nearly 2.3 million young people. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
