Airborne 12.13.17: Flight Design Update, Bell 525, Space Policy Directive

Also: A380 Production Cut?, Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour, US Nationals, Muilenburg'ss Mars Prediction

Flight Design may be under new ownership, but it plans to continue to be a leader in the design and manufacturing of light aircraft.

Flight Design was acquired by LIFTAir of Eisenach, Germany last July and has been rebranded as Flight Design General Aviation GmbH. As a part of the acquisition, LIFTAir now owns the Flight Design EASA Design Organization, the Flight Design aircraft production facility in Kherson Ukraine and the design rights for all products produced by the company. The FAA has posted a Notice of Proposed Special Conditions for the Bell 525 Relentless helicopter in the Federal Register. The agency says that the helicopter will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with fly-by-wire flight control system (FBW FCS) functions that affect the pilot awareness of the flight control modes while operating the helicopter. President Donald Trump is sending astronauts back to the Moon. The president, Monday, signed the White House Space Policy Directive 1, a change in national space policy that provides for a US-led, integrated program with private sector partners for a human return to the Moon, followed by missions to Mars and beyond. The policy calls for the NASA administrator to “lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
