In a move that would cut regulations on the general aviation industry and thereby improve safety, decrease costs, and free private-sector innovation, Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS), has introduced the Small Aircraft Revitalization Act.

The EAA AirVenture Cup Race will feature a new starting point in 2013, This year’s course will start at Mount Vernon Airport (KMVN) in Illinois, include two turn points, and end at Waupaca Municipal Airport (PCZ) about 30 miles northwest of Oshkosh. Officials are also adding several new classes of aircraft to the race, including production-built aircraft, vintage airplanes, and warbirds. Each class has a first, second and third place awards. Maverick, Mother Goose and Iceman would all be proud! The first fly-in arrested landing of the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) demonstrator has been successfully completed by the U.S. Navy and prime contractor Northrop Grumman.
