Successful Chute Deployment Dumps S/E Jet Into Pond

With increasing frequency, the questionable record of the Cirrus Vision Jet becomes all the more questionable. Friday morning, a Cirrus Vision Jet, N15VJ, (SN #215) went down shortly after takeoff from the Indianapolis Regional Airport. Whatever occurred to convince the pilot that this was a proper course of action took place early in the flight and barely a mile off the end of Runway 25. Video of the late 2020 certified aircraft, under the canopy, is already on social media, and in one there seems to be a smoky trail above the aircraft that might point to powerplant issues.

Update: FAA Publishes Draft Rule to Include Powered-Lift Under Air Carrier Def's

Administration Does Some Needed Housekeeping Before Commercial eVTOL Operators Arrive to the Party

The FAA has published a draft regarding an update to Air Carrier definitions that would add all powered-lift to existing definitions. The draft says that the rule is an "important step in the FAA's integration of new entrant aircraft in the National Airspace System”, paving the way for the expected wave of eVTOL aircraft on the way. The upcoming slate of electric or hybrid multirotor aircraft is expected to begin entry into commercial service by decade's end, with most manufacturers hard at work developing their aircraft for certification within the next 3-5 years.

H3 Dynamics Completes Hydrogen Twin Test Flight

Self-Contained Hydrogen Engine Nacelle May Be Offered as UAV Aftermarket Modification

H3 Dynamics' twin-engine hydrogen UAV demonstrator completed its first successful test flight over a Paris airfield. The flight was a capstone of sorts, for a program that first completed a working propulsion nacelle prototype a year prior. By July, H3 Dynamics had been able to test their first distributed pod system on a scale aircraft at the Hub Drones - Systematic airfield near Paris, France. That proved the basic functionality of their hydrogen-powered system, allowing them to begin scaling up their designs. The most recent test evaluated the performance of a twin-engine, hydrogen powered, propeller-driven propulsion aircraft on the way towards larger, more complex installations.
