Airborne 05.16.22: Enstrom Bought-Again, Republic v FAA, NTSB Blames FAA

Also: FAA Funds Airport Improvements, WAI Membership Changes, USCG On Launches, United Airlines

Chuck Surack, founder of Surack Enterprises, has announced that he has purchased The Enstrom Helicopter Corporation of Menominee, Michigan, to rebuild the Enstrom brand into one of the leading American-made helicopter manufacturers as it once was.

In a letter to the Enstrom leadership team, Surack shared his appreciation to the employees for their devotion and dedication over the years and particularly during the last few difficult months. For some time, Republic Airways has enjoyed a not so favorable opinion in the “Low Time” flying community due to reports of it allegedly engaging in second-in-command (SIC) operations on its single-pilot fleet, and those SIC’s later discovering that their ‘logged time’ is invalid and cannot be applied to flight experience for their Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) rating. Well, those woes may soon come to an end if Republic Airways gets its way. The NTSB has alleged that the FAA was negligent in preventing the fatal crash of an Air Tour Helicopter in 2019. On 26 December 2019, an Airbus AS350 B2 helicopter that was being used for Air Tours by Safari Aviation crashed in Kekaha, Hawaii, killing the pilot and all six passengers after possibly entering instrument meteorological conditions (IMC). All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
