Also: Chelan Seaplanes Debacle, Electrifying E-Fest, Delta's New Airbus, Orion Update, ACSS NXT-700, Flyht, Duncan Aviation

The newest SpaceShipTwo flew free of its mother ship for the first time, just a few days ago. VSS Unity was piloted by Mark Stucky and Dave Mackay. Over the course of the 1 hour 20 minute flight, of which 10 minutes was the free flight of SpaceShipTwo, the pilots, mission controllers, and ground crews collected valuable data. The test flight was the fifth flight of VSS Unity following several recent Captive Carry flights. Tecnam has introduced what they say is a substantially updated and improved Mark-2 version of the company’s popular light sport eligible P2002 Sierra.

ANN Presents: Bob Hoover Memorial Celebration of Life (11.18.16 -- Special Edit)

Honoring A Great Man, A Great Pilot, A Great American -- and Above All Else… A Great Friend

Bob Hoover was, to virtually everyone in the aviation world, the “Pilot’s Pilot.” One of aviation’s most celebrated aviators, Hoover pioneered a legendary life as a fighter pilot, test pilot, airshow pilot and aviation figurehead. Whether escaping a German prisoner of war camp in WWII by stealing a German fighter, flying in support of Chuck Yeager’s record-breaking sound-barrier flights, testing dozens of leading edge airplanes (often for the first time) or flying flawlessly thorough hundreds of airshow performances; Hoover’s 94 years were packed with adventure, class, distinction, and a gentlemanly grace heretofore unmatched by any other flyer. This beloved aviator passed away, quietly and with dignity, October 25th. View The Special Edit of the Hoover Memorial Celebrati

Also: P-51C 'Tuskegee Airmen', Aero-Calendar, EASA Mandate, Master Instructor, 737 MAX Thrust Reverser, LaMia Airline, Flying Colours

SpaceX could return to flight by the middle of the month if the FAA approves its next launch, according to SpaceX customer Iridium Communications. The launch is scheduled on December 16 at 12:36 p.m. Pacific Standard Time from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, according to an Iridium news release.

This AD was prompted by a report indicating that all three fly control modules might simultaneously reset if continuously powered on for 22 days on all Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. A reset of the flight control modules, if not corrected, could result in flight control surface
