Airborne 02.19.20: Sport Pilot Academy, 2019 Avionics Report, WWII Planes

The benefits of immersive, small group flight instruction are coming to Oshkosh again in 2020, as the EAA is hosting five Sport Pilot Academy sessions this year, beginning in May.

The EAA Sport Pilot Academy offers a direct path to sport pilot certification through a three-week training program that eliminates obstacles such as scheduling conflicts and instructor availability. The program takes participants from the first flight through their sport pilot checkride at EAA facilities. AEA has released its 2019 year-end Avionics Market Report, and total worldwide business and general aviation avionics sales for 2019 amounted to $3,005,839,505, or more than $3 billion as reported by the participating companies. The figure represented a 10.2% increase in total year-end sales compared to 2018. During the fourth-quarter months of October, November and December, sales increased 5.3% compared to the same time frame one year ago. Truk Lagoon in Micronesia ... now known as Chuuk Lagoon ... is continuing to give up its secrets. Project Recover, which is a group dedicated to identifying and where possible repatriating remains of Americans missing in action, has discovered three U.S. aircraft which went down during Operation Hailstone in February, 1944 that are associated with seven U.S. servicemen who had been listed as Missing in Action. The aircraft are two SBD-5 Dauntless dive bombers and a TBM/F-1 Avenger which engaged Japanese forces during the operation February 17-18, 1944. The aircraft were among the approximately 30 planes that were lost during the operation. Officials estimate that 12 went down in the lagoon. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
