Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster and Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Frank LoBiondo introduced the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization legislation. This legislation establishes a nongovernmental, independent, not-for-profit corporation, to modernize and provide U.S. air traffic control services. The Act is a six-year reauthorization of the FAA, and proposes a federally chartered air traffic control corporation that will be governed by a board representing the aviation system’s users and the public interest. Here’s some good news for our ‘fly and splash’ aviator friends. PK Floats is back in the business of building floats for aircraft. The company had closed three years ago after the death

Last Friday, a helicopter pilot in Tanzania was struck by ground fire. He managed to safely land the helicopter, but succumbed to his wounds. Three suspected elephant poachers have been arrested in connection with the shooting of the British pilot. The pilot, Roger Gower, was helping Tanzanian authorities track the poachers when they fired on the aircraft. He landed the helicopter in the Maswa Game Reserve, near Serengeti National Park. Four U.S. Senators on the Senate Appropriations Committee have written a letter to the House Transportation Committee that is set to begin consideration of an FAA reauthorization bill, which many think will include a plan to strip Air Traffic Control from the FAA. The Senators, Thad Cochran, Barbara Mikulski, Susan Collins, and Jack R
