Airborne 05.13.22: FAA v Red Bull!, Spontaneous Pilot, eVTOL Certification

Also: Honor Flight 250,000th, USMC Aviation Plan, United's Green Fuel, Oshkosh 2022!

That incredibly foolish Red Bull Skydive-and-switch-planes-in-midair stunt that went so bad last month has  resulted in both pilot/skydivers losing their certificates.

Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington received nationwide attention for the poorly planned and executed stunt. The result is this... both of them have to surrender their tickets immediately and Aikins is facing an additional financial penalty in the form of a nearly $5000 fine. An individual with allegedly no prior flying experience had a chance to live many a pilot’s dream/nightmare, by landing a small airplane after the pilot became incapacitated. The Cessna 208 Caravan, a fixed-gear single-engine turbo-prop airplane, was being operated by a single pilot from Marsh Harbor in the Bahamas to Ft. Pierce Florida when one of the passengers noticed that the pilot was not responsive. Recognizing the importance of keeping abreast of the technological developments in the industry, the FAA is reconsidering its approach to the certification of eVTOLs. Apparently, the new Acting Administrator of the FAA is engaging reverse thrusters, and as such causes great consternation for industry hopefuls looking to make their Jetsons puddle-jumpers and training aircraft a reality. It was hoped that this new framework translated into an agile aircraft certification process that is in step with innovation. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
