Airborne 11.30.12: Riggs Loses Again, 406 ELTs, Flawless Legacy 500 First Flight

Also: Bombardier Big Bucks, Huerta Unblocked, Cessna/CAIGA, Anti-EU-ETS Law, X47B Carrier Quals, Missing Moon Rocks Found

David G Riggs, quickly assuming the aura of aviation's best known crook and con-man, has lost another battle with the Feds... this time, namely, the NTSB and the FAA.

FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta recently issued an Emergency Order commanding Riggs to surrender his pilot certificate but Riggs filed an appeal with the NTSB claiming, among other things, that the flights questioned in the Emergency Order were legal as they were performed under a “Movie Waiver.” However the FAA has repeatedly ruled that the filming of ‘personal hero’ or ‘aviation thrill’ videos do not qualify under the conventional cinematic waivers. Ringing in the New Year could cost you serious dollars if your future plans include flying to the Bahamas or Mexico. That’s because those two countries, beginning February 1, 2013 and June 1, 2013 respectively, will require aircraft operating there to include an installed 406 Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT). All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
