Airborne 08.10.18: ANN Flies Sling TSi, Indoor Skydivers, Bob Hoover Artistry

Also: 2Q-18 Avionics Sales, HondaJet Elite Deliveries, Pilot Sentenced, Drone Herds Birds

The day after Oshkosh 2018 came to a close, ANN’s Jim Campbell had the chance to be the first aviation journalist to get an early evaluation of the new Sling TSi--literally just out of the box that it was shipped in, from South Africa to Oshkosh.

While it‘s unfair and improper to do a full flight test of an aircraft that barely had an hour or two on it since it was assembled in the US, the one hour shakedown flight did give Jim the chance to see if the Sling TSi has the potential we hoped it has... and the verdict so far is this... It does. The longest indoor freefall Guinness World Record has been jointly achieved by two Russian adventurers, Viktor Kozlov and Sergey Dmitriyev, in the city of Perm last month. The record took place at the FreeFly Technology wind tunnel. The skydivers flew uninterrupted for 8 hours, 33 minutes and 43 seconds to beat the record of indoor freefall set before. The result was made official by a Guinness representative. A few weeks ago, ANN asked an accomplished artist and a good friend, AEA’s Lauren McFarland, to help us build some content and bonuses for an upcoming crowdfunding campaign supporting Jim Campbell’s upcoming book, “Friends of Bob.” We’ll have much more to say about the book later, but we wanted to give special attention to Lauren’s incredible artistry and her recreation of an iconic Hoover photo and the video that showed the process in phenomenal detail. Take a few minutes, sit back and watch this... as Lauren McFarland brings the incredible Bob Hoover back to us all, for a few minutes, via her artistic mastery. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
