Airborne-Special Edition 06.14.21: Catching Up W/Former AOPA Boss Phil Boyer-Pt2

Also: One Big Surprise From Phil's Retirement... He Built An RV-12!

Former AOPA president Phil Boyer is considered one of aviation's most effective leaders. Over the course of 18 Years, Phil led the organization to greater prominence and built membership numbers to well over 400,000 -- Heights of popularity the organization has not seen since his departure. Upon retirement, Phil, and his wife Lois, moved to an airport home where he continued his love for aviation... for both manned and unmanned aviation. Since leaving AOPA more than ten years ago, Phil has owned two exceptional biplanes (WACO and a Great Lakes), and a Beech A36 traveling machine -- and most recently has completed the building, and test flying, of a Van's RV-12. Phil also served for a number of years on the board of Aspen Avionics, and has become an accomplished drone pilot, as well. Phil and ANN’s Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbe

Airborne-Unmanned 06.16.21: Massive eVTOL Order, TAV Record, USN UAS Test Sq

Also: Eve Urban Air Mobility, Electra Hybrid-Electric, Aerovironment Relocates, ASTM International

Avolon and Vertical Aerospace have agreed on a ground-breaking US$2 billion order for up to 500 electric eVTOL aircraft. Building out of the technologies here-to-fore pioneered by the autonomous air vehicle industries, Avolon and Vertical Aerospace have agreed on a ground-breaking agreement. This agreement, which is subject to certain conditions, will introduce the ultra-short-haul aircraft category to commercial aviation. The agreement will see both companies collaborate throughout the development, road map to certification and subsequent commercial roll-out of the VA-X4. Zenith AeroTech has, over the span of a week, flown its Quad 8 multi-rotor platform for a total of 161 hours and 49 minutes—108 hours of which were continuous, uninterrupted flight. The test, which took place over a seven-day

Airborne-Flight Training 06.10.21: FAA Policy Mess, Hypoxia Training, ERAU Drone

Also: F-35 Training Center, Flight School Financing, Runway Safety, Rotorcraft Safety Program

In a June 4th letter from the FAA, a new policy was announced by the FAA aligning the recent Warbird Adventures decision with 91.319 and defining flight instruction as “carrying persons or property for compensation or hire.” This reverses historic FAA guidance and also 8900.1 which defines flight instruction as “educational.” This new policy would also prevent flight instruction in *all* experimental aircraft without a Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA). The additional downstream legal consequences of this FAA policy reversal are also frightening in terms of medical requirements and liability for CFIs. The Naval Aviation Training Systems and Ranges program office (PMA-205) Normobaric Hypoxia Trainer (NHT) team recently designed, delivered, installed, and began support of the NHT

Classic Aero-TV: The Ultimate 'Solo' Trip -- Cameron Balloons' Sky Hopper

From 2011 (YouTube Version): A Unique, Affordable and Isolated way to Enjoy Ballooning

Ballooning is both a unique as well as eclectic pursuit... and it attracts (naturally) a pretty unique brand of aviator to its ranks. But solo balloons are particularly rare... though an undeniably cost effective way to play in the sky. While there have been a number of single seat experimental and ultralight balloon systems offered over the years, Cameron says its Sky Hopper is a smaller, lighter and simpler concept. Still; they note that the Hopper 'cuts no corners when it comes to features, including a four point "fail safe" suspension system that transmits base loads to the envelope, and a silky-smooth rotation system which incorporates sealed, stainless steel ball bearings.' The design enables the very minimal base to accommodate any Cam
