Airborne 08.10.20: 1st US Panthera, ULA and SpaceX, New 99s Prez

Pipistrel-USA dealer, Right Rudder Aviation, has just taken delivery of a new Pipistrel Panthera high-performance four place aircraft -- the first of its kind in all of North America. Right Rudder Aviation is an FBO/Flight School/Aircraft Dealer based at the Inverness Airport in Inverness, FL.

The Panthera is one of the curviest aircraft to hit the scene in quite a while -- and a potential Cirrus killer. A composite (much of it carbon-fiber) four-place with tricycle retractable gear, a T-Tail, and an all-glass panel, the basics of this aircraft boast 1000NM range, 200 kts and at 10GPH. It has a full-fuel payload of 760 pounds. An airframe parachute system is part of the package. The Space and Missile Systems Center, in partnership with the National Reconnaissance Office, competitively awarded two Firm-Fixed-Price, Indefinite Delivery Requirement contracts for National Security Space launch services to United Launch Alliance LLC and SpaceX. The awards are worth billions and are basically split 50% for ULA and 40% for SpaceX. Northrop Grumman and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin were left out in the cold and walked away without any of this highly sought-after business - which should add up to $1 billion per year on launches. The Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots, announced the installation of Corbi Bulluck as International President for 2020-2022. In a first for the 90-year-old organization, Bulluck, a North Carolina native, was installed via a virtual ceremony after the July annual meeting, scheduled for Long Beach, CA, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
