Classic Aero-TV: Bright-Shiny-Airworthy!--Steve Cole's Hummel UltraCruiser

From 2015: Some Of the Prettiest Sights Of Oshkosh Were Also Very Affordable

At EAA AirVenture 2015, there are lots of airplanes to look at, but this one is a real eye catcher. It’s a small single-place airplane, it qualifies as an ultralight, and is so shiny you need dark glasses just to look at it in the sunlight. ANN’s News Editor, Tom Patton, had a sit-down and chat with, Steve Cole, who is the builder and owner of this Hummel UltraCruiser which took the Grand Champion Ultralight trophy this year at Oshkosh. It’s a plans-built airplane that Cole completed with unbelievable attention to detail. The all-aluminum airframe is shiny beyond belief and Cole tells us how he did it. It’s a process that works, but it’s probably not for everybody.

Also: SuperBowl TFR, Piper Adds MSU, Boeing's 4th Quarter, Collier Nominations

Thales and Iridium have joined the infamous ultra-high-altitude Perlan continuous flight program. The engineless glider can now avail itself of the Iridium communications network, offering the world's highest internet hot spot at more than 65,000 feet. Perlan will use their newfound connectivity for inflight communications, as well as live streaming from both the glider and its Egret super tow plane. The FAA has published its first round of Notices To Air Missions regarding the soon-to-be activated 5G cell networks, placing warnings over 1,462 airports in an effort to ease the industry into a post-5G world with minimal issue. The restrictions put into place warn that radio altimeters are unreliable and not authorized for use unless equipped with approved alternative methods of compliance. Virgin Orbit confirmed it successfully deployed into orbit all 7 customer satelli

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.

AD: Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Airplanes

AD 2022-02-15 Retains The Actions Of AD 2020-12-06 And Corrects The Citation To The AFM

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2020-12-06 for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream) Model G-IV airplanes. AD 2020-12-06 required replacing the nose wheel steering servo valve manifold, incorporating revised operating procedures into the airplane flight manual (AFM), doing a records inspection for any incidents of un-commanded nose wheel steering turns, and reporting the results to the FAA. Since the FAA issued AD 2020-12-16,  the FAA determined that a typographical error was made in citing one of the AFM documents. This AD retains the actions of AD 2020-12-06 and corrects the citation to the AFM. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective February 24, 2022.
