Airborne 07.16.18: Coast Guard Rescues, AEA $$Prizes$$, Commuter Craft

If you aren’t already in awe of the work of the US Coast Guard, you should be.

Two Coast Guard Air Station Sitka MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crews rescued 11 people after a floatplane went down 39 miles south southwest of Ketchikan, Alaska, on Prince of Wales Island, Tuesday. The Jayhawk crews arrived on scene, and were able to safely hoist all 11 people from the side of a mountain, approximately 2,000 AGL. The Jayhawk crew then took them to a staging area for further transfer to Ketchikan. All were reported to have minor injuries, but otherwise in good condition. To help incentivize owners of GA aircraft to meet the FAA's ADS-B Out equipage mandate in the United States, the Aircraft Electronics Association will randomly award five aircraft owners with $1,000 each toward an ADS-B compliant upgrade during AirVenture. This year marks the fifth-consecutive year that the AEA has made the $1,000 award available. Feeling creative? Commuter Craft is looking for fresh artwork ideas for its aircraft…the Innovator. Three cash prizes in each category are being offered...First Prize is $250, second is $100, and third is $50. There are two subcategories...one for kids 17 and under, and one for adults. Before downloading the blank sketch, the company asks that you read the Rules of the contest.  Once you've agreed to them, there will be a link to download the small PDF file of the aircraft sketch. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
