Also: EAA On NTSB Drug Study, Remember 'Ripcord?', FAA Loosens Up In SAR UAV Use, Curiosity Arrives At Martian Mount, IAF Worries About Social Media

With much fanfare, Apple rolled out its new iOS 8 operating system last week, as well as new devices which will be available soon. However, ForeFlight is asking it subscribers to wait a little while before hitting the "Update" button. The proposed airing of a television program on Al Jazeera English focused on the development and production of the Boeing Dreamliner has led Boeing to issue a preemptive response. Boeing’s statement says in part, "Promotional trailer and published media reviews suggest that what has been produced [by Al Jazeera English] is as biased a production as we have seen in some time... Three crew members from the International Space Station returned to Earth last week after 169 days of science and technology research in space, including a record 82 hours of research in a s

While it comes as no surprise to those of us that have had to deal with Cirrus Aircraft's negative tactics and behaviors, a judge in Hennepin County, Minnesota last month dismissed post-trial motions filed by Cirrus Industries following a jury verdict that awarded $10 million to Alan Klapmeier last March. The actual judgment was posted this week by the court. During the week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, thousands of people had a hand in building EAA’s One Week Wonder Zenith CH 750 Cruzer. During the ensuing weeks a handful of pilots have completed the required 40 hours of Phase one flight testing, beginning with the first flight by Jeff Skiles the day after the convention.
