Airborne 03.15.19: 737 MAX Reaction, JetPack Aviation, Aviation Rideshare $$$

Also: Next FAA Administrator?, Costin Airport Acquired, Atlas Air Accident, CA Paraglider Accident

The industry is weighing in on the FAA's decision to ground the domestic fleet of Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 airplanes following the accident in Ethiopia last weekend which fatally injured all 157 people on board the airplane.

Boeing said in a statement that it continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX. "However, after consultation with the FAA, the NTSB, and aviation authorities and its customers around the world, Boeing has determined -- out of an abundance of caution and in order to reassure the flying public of the aircraft’s safety -- to recommend to the FAA the temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet of 371 737 MAX aircraft. JetPack Aviation is taking pre-orders for its Recreational Speeder personal VTOL air vehicle. The company bills the vehicle as "The World's First Flying Motorcycle". The Recreational Speeder is reportedly fully VTOL capable and can effectively take off from anywhere the size of a small car space. Originally intended only for military, government and commercial clients JPA is also designing a version of the Speeder for the recreational market. They say it will be lighter than most 125cc motorcycles, fully stabilized and simple to fly. A new GA ridesharing service has raised $10 million in venture capital, hoping to succeed where other such efforts have been squashed by the FAA. The company is called BlackBird. In a blog post dated March 12, the company says that it has raised $10 million. Jonathan Golden, who helped launch Airbnb, and will join BlackBird's Board of Directors. BlackBird says it has added employees and signed up "hundreds of planes and pilots." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
