Airborne 10.23.20: P2010 TDI Cert, OSIRIS-REx, MultiGP Championships

The P2010 airframe, with its composite fuselage design and the all-metal wing and stabilator, has proven to be a good match for the Diesel engine. The "P Twenty-Ten" now offers the flexibility offered by the use of Diesel/JetA1 fuel and the low operating costs provided by the dual FADEC-controlled Continental engine. NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft unfurled its robotic arm Tuesday, and in a first for the agency, briefly touched an asteroid to collect dust and pebbles from the surface for delivery to Earth in 2023.

ALPA: Canadian Government Inaction Continues to Cost Pilot Jobs

For More Than Six Months ALPA Has Reportedly Lobbied The Government For Targeted Support

AKPA reports that Canada's aviation sector continues to struggle from the effects of COVID-19, and the continued inaction of the federal government is killing industry jobs and negatively impacting the lives of Canadians. This week Air Transat announced it was reducing its flight schedule and eliminating half of the remaining pilot positions. “Only 14 percent of the pilots who were employed by Air Transat at the start of the pandemic remain employed with the airline. While safety remains our top priority, the punitive travel restrictions put in place by the government and a failure to provide labor-focused assistance for airlines make it impossible for Air Transat to do business.
