Airborne 06.13.18: Doolittle Raider, SureFly Multi-Copter, CA Capital Airshow

The CAF's C-47 transport airplane That's All, Brother is a pretty special airplane.

It has the distinction of being the first aircraft to cross into Europe on D-Day.  Last week, the airplane had a pretty special passenger. Dick Cole, who is the last surviving person who flew the famous Doolittle Raid over Tokyo in 1942, was aboard as the CAF commemorated the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The FAA has accepted an application for a type certificate from Workhorse Group for the SureFly eVTOL aircraft. The SureFly design appears to be the first hybrid-electric eVTOL multi-copter to reach this milestone with the FAA. SureFly has been designed to be easy to operate, safe to fly and expected to be moderately priced relative to a conventional helicopter. SureFly has eight electrically driven props that are powered via a piston or turbine based generator. The craft also has a small lithium battery that is designed to power the motors for a safe descent and landing in the event that the generator fails while in flight. The SureFly design also has a ballistic parachute. The California Capital Airshow (CCA) has announced details for its planned Airshow After Dark, a nighttime extravaganza of flying, fireworks and music amid an aviation-themed festival atmosphere of family fun and entertainment. The evening, which begins at 5 pm on Friday, September 21, commemorates Mather Airport’s 100th birthday and includes the US Air Force Thunderbirds-headlined airshows on September 22 and 23. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
