Airborne 11.30.22: Envoy Offers $100K, ICAS Aids CAF, Powerline Mooney

Also: First Disabled ESA Astronaut, Extremists Disrupt Berlin, 737 Drag Reduction Kits, Chinese Drones in DC

Envoy is sweetening the deal for new hire pilots, offering up to $100,000 of bonus money for those with the kind of logbook the airline is looking for. For those pilots who receive a conditional job offer until December 31, 2022, the full amount of the bonuses (less taxes, of course) will be paid out on the day prior to the pilot's reporting to training. The catch? Pilots will have to have a good deal of Part 121 flight time under their belt. The recent tragedy that occurred at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow is receiving the generous attention and aid of the International Council of Air Shows... On behalf of its board, staff, and members, the International Council of Air Shows has offered its heartfelt condolences to the families of those individuals involved in the recent accident in Dallas and to our colleagues in the Commemorative Air Fo

Airborne 11.28.22: Cirrus Jet Chute Save, Powered-Lift Regs, Safer E-ABs?

Also: NTSB Targets Niche Commercial Ops, Ingenuity Flight 34, CG Jayhawk Save, ASA Releases AIRCLASSICS Push-to-Talk Switch

With increasing frequency, the record of the Cirrus Vision Jet becomes all the more questionable. Friday morning, a Cirrus Vision Jet, N15VJ, went down shortly after takeoff from the Indianapolis Regional Airport. The pilot’s course of action took place early in the flight and barely a mile off the end of Runway 25. Video of the late 2020 aircraft, under the canopy, showed up swiftly on social media, and in one there seems to be a smoky trail above/behind the aircraft that might point to powerplant issues. 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 eVTO

Airborne-UnCrewed 11.29.22: Powered-Lift Regs, Mars Ingenuity, AMA 1st CBO

Also: Snoopy Hitches a Ride, H3 Dynamics, Drone Pilot Textbook, ‘Airborne-NextGen!'

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. Compared to some of the other flights this past year, Flight 34 might not stand out. Even shorter than Ingenuity’s first flight, Tuesday’s successful 18-second flight simply popped up to a little over 16 feet, hovered, then landed. Despite the flight’s simple nature, the Ingenuity team is very excited because of what it means for the future of the program. After first establishing the creation of CBO's to offer some structure and guidance to the recretational drone community, the FAA has officially recogni

Airborne 11.23.22: Tamarack Records, Sporty's PJ2+, LATAM A320neo Collision

Also: ANN Turkey Day!, ALPA v Pilot Shortage, Eco Caravan, New Petrel XP

Tamarack Aerospace has submitted a claim this week to the NAA and the European FAI for two city-pair flight records. The first—a 15 October, non-stop 2,033-nautical-mile flight from Spokane, Washington (GEG) to Orlando, Florida (MCO) in a King Air 350 retrofitted with Tamarack’s innovative Performance SMARTWING technology—was completed in a brisk 7-hours and 46-minutes. porty's unveiled the newest rendition of their handheld radio systems with their PJ2+, improving upon the portable backup with more usability than ever before. The new model features 6 watts of peak transmission power, with a brighter, high-contrast screen, flexible power options, USB-C support, and an easy touch key interface. A questionable set of circumstances, occurred Friday as a LATAM A320neo, the first major airframe loss of the type, collided with a fire truck that pulled out on to a runway
