Though you're still unlikely to hear much about the contribution
General Aviation is making to the Katrina recovery effort, one
Cessna is having an inestimable impact on Hurricane
releif after it was used to map much of the devastation left
by Hurricane Katrina.
Barely a week after earning its Brazilian TC, Embraer has
confirmed that the FAA has issued a type certificate for the
100-seat Embraer 190 airliner, allowing Embraer to start deliveries
to launch-customer JetBlue and GECAS in the United States.
Media reports are hitting the public at all angles about
nearly every possible aspect of the tragedy that befell this
nation. But... one of the more important stories in this drama is

the scene of Monday's downed airliner in a crowded Indonesian
neighborhood will yield the information needed to determine what
brought the 24-year-old B737 down.
It's a plan that sounds something like a Monty Python skit
specifically geared to the engineering community, but the idea has
merit: NASA could either tear down the 73-year-old, toxin-laden,
200-foot-tall structure on the grounds of the Ames Research Center
at Moffett Field, CA...
“It’s aviation mecca,” I wrote in an email
several days ago, while trying in vain to explain to a friend the
appeal of spending eight days at Wittman Field under alternating
blistering sun and drenching rain.
ANN Reader Robert Maier (pictured below) is a man on a
mission... an Angel Flight Mission. With his
Cherokee 180, Maier has become part of the undersung but
none-the-less invaluable mission being undertaken by unselfish,
heroic aviators who want nothing right now than to know that they
are part of a solution to a seemingly insurmountable
problem--bringing relief to those imperiled by the wrath of
"We will keep trying. We were burned pretty badly
tonight. We got rolling at the specific and frantic, yes, frantic,
request of the authorities only to see it turn into a disappointing
and frustrating exercise in futility. Lesson Number One: We will
try to airlift folks going forward but will only call on our pilots
when the people to be evacuated are at the airport, lined up, ready

a massive relocation/rescue mission to Baton Rouge and being turned
back by a confused bureaucracy as the aircraft were airborne and
enroute to that embattled location. Undaunted, Angel Flight went
back and completed that mission later in the week.
