To those of your struggling with flying lessons, you should be inspired by a friend of ours.

Few student pilots had more to overcome than Jessica Cox... now a Private PIlot and aircraft owner. Jessica Cox is the world’s first person without arms licensed to fly an airplane. She shares her life story with the world as a motivational speaker and disability rights advocate. On the morning of July 24, 2020, Cox will host retired Iowa Senator Tom Harkin (Dem) on a flight in her airplane, N26R (“two-six-Romeo”), from Fredrick, MD, north of Washington, D.C. The event is in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). The long awaited update to the nearly legendary Microsoft Flight Simulator launches on August 18. And it can't come too soon for the thousands who have been awaiting this version. MFS developers note that they, "...have been thrilled and humbled by the support and dedication that has fueled the Flight Sim community for the past 38 years. Since the launch of the very first Microsoft Flight Simulator in 1982, we knew it was finally the right time to develop the next-generation version of Microsoft Flight Simulator..." Established in 1942, the MTSU Aerospace Department has grown into one of the most respected aerospace programs in the US. Seventeen full-time faculty members, 75 flight instructors, and around 1,000 majors place it among the largest of the nation's collegiate aviation programs. MTSU has been a Diamond fleet customer since the early 2000s. Along with the purchase of six new aircraft, the Diamond factory service center is refurbishing 13 aircraft of their existing fleet. Since the airframes do not have a life limit, Diamond Aircraft is revamping the interior, updating some avionics options, and painting and restriping the old aircraft, to look as good as new. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
