Airborne 12.06.21: Sully To ICAO, 100% SAF A350 Flt, 1000th S-Tec 3100

The US Senate has confirmed the nomination of C. B. “Sully” Sullenberger III to be the U.S. representative on the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who along with fellow “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot Jeff Skiles, became instantly known on January 15, 2009, when they successfully landed an airliner on the Hudson River following a complete loss of engine power after the aircraft struck a flock of geese. A joint study on the impact of 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on both engines of a commercial jet have shown highly promising results in the early phases of analysis, says Airbus. Working with fellow industry veterans Rolls-Royce, fuel production specialist Neste, and German Research Centre DLR, the test is the first time that both engines of a commercial passenger aircraft have been run on 100% sustainable fuel, a departure from the norm. Genesys Aerosystems (part of Moog, Inc.) announced the recent shipment of its 1000th S-Tec 3100 autopilot since the model's release in 2018. Certified for multiple fixed and rotary wing aircraft, over 200 in total, the 2 axis (and 3, where appropriate for the installation) autopilot has given owners and operators a bevy of enhanced, modern features most often found in more expensive systems. The S-Tec includes automatic trim, envelope protection, one-button straight and level recovery, indicated airspeed hold, altitude preselect, and alerting capability for inappropriate flight conditions. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
