Airborne 03.30.20: Dornier Seastar 1st Flt, April 1st Episode, Flt Schools

Also: Bell 360 Invictus, BizAv Survival, 2019 Collier Trophy, SIB For ELT Batteries

The prototype SN1003, a New Generation of the Dornier Seastar amphibious aircraft successfully performed its first flight last week at Oberpfaffenhofen EDMO airport, Germany.

The flight was performed by Dornier Seawings test pilot crew and took 31 minutes. The Seastar SN1003 attained the required approvals from EASA and LBA on 19 March 2020, this was a major milestone and achievement for the program. Wolfram Cornelius, Chief Test Pilot, noted that, “First flight was completed successfully and confirmed the nice handling qualities of the Seastar. All systems functioned correctly..” With all the issues that surround us these days, it seems to us that now is THE time for a good laugh or two. For over two decades, the Aero-News Network has had fun with the date of April 1st, and this year will be no exception. And, while we know the world around us is kind of miserable at the moment, it seems like the right time the step back, have a little bit of fun, and enjoy a few moments when a little bit of the world isn't so serious. So... This Wednesday, April 1st, we are pleased to present this year's rendition of our nearly legendary April 1st issues and episodes on both Aero-News, as well as Airborne. FSANA continues to work with interpretations of authorization for continued operation of flight training operators during COVID-19 related restrictions around the United States. As our country works through this challenge, an important factor is continuing the viability of the current and future air transportation system to provide transit of persons and goods as necessary during the emergency and during the recovery. Without continued training and currency of our pilot community, this ability would be hindered. As such, FSANA has sought input and interpretation from legal counsel. On March 24, 2020, attorney Gregory Winton, who has previously served as a Senior Attorney for the FAA and U.S. Department of Justice, and now operates The Aviation Law Firm in Annapolis, MD, provided a memorandum of understanding that was additionally submitted to the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)’s Director, Christopher C. Krebs. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
