Also: Boeing's 787-9 Demo, Hartzell's TBM Wonder-Prop, More Santa Monica Maneuvering, Garmin Global Pilot, Even more TSA Stupidity

Greg Koontz has been named the recipient of this year’s Bill Barber Award for Showmanship, according to World Airshow News, and will be presented with the award in front of his peers at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on Tuesday, July 29, at Theater in the Woods. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) spaceplane will showcase re-entry technologies after its unconventional launch from Kourou in French Guiana on a Vega rocket this November.

OSH2013, Day One, Revisited: ICON, Pelton, Cessna, SubSonex, BendixKing

Also: Jam-Packed Opening Day Promises That "This Isn't Over" in EAA v FAA Fight

ICON Aircraft has been granted a waiver by the FAA to allow a maximum gross takeoff weight to sixteen-hundred-eighty pounds, which the company says will allow it to proceed with producing the airplane. The company plans to have the first production airplane flying in 2014, but ICON has made predictions about production dates in the past that have not been met. In addition, Hawkins said that the airplane’s performance will be negatively affected by the increase in weight. The price has gone up as well, with a new ICON A-5 now expected to cost about 189-thousand dollars. EAA Chairman Jack Pelton opened his discussion of AirVenture 2013 with even more detail about the way that the FAA ran roughshod over the EAA barely two months ago... and also admitted that last year’s AirVenture showed that EAA had ‘lost its way...’ Still; EAA has made tremendou

Model aviation is the foundation of many of the aviation advances we enjoy today. In the history of aviation, early experiments started with miniature aircraft and, even today, sophisticated aircraft are commonly first produced in a scaled-down version for initial testing. Modelers call the big guys “full scale” and they are now running into some of the same “full scale” concerns with the FAA rulemaking process as the full scale flyers.
