Barnstorming: The Aviation World--A Demonstration of Well-Organized Chaos Theory

A Plan, Of Sorts, Has Been Brewing For Quite A While... And I Think It May Be Time To Act

By ANN/CEO Jim Campbell... With Inspiration From The Thousands Of Amazing Aviators Who Have Shaped My Life What an intriguing, if conflicting, few weeks... I came home, several weeks ago, from a Veteran Cemetery after a dear friend lost his wife of nearly 60 years... so we endured the sadness while in a beautiful location dedicated to the memory of those whose hopes and dreams once served our nation so well... and as such, it was hard not to be pretty introspective on the quiet ride home. I spent most of it telling my dear wife Masako, of countless, now departed friends, with whom I shared so much and still, to this day, owe so much to, as well. I have been flying for more than 53 years.... and in love with Aviation, of all kinds, for far longer... having survived nearly 20,000 hours of extraordinary air time because of the generosity, wisdom, and kinship of so many from throughout the aviation world th

Gravity Industries Jet Suits Raced for 1st Time

High-Flying Humanoids Head Up Hyped Highrise Series

Gravity Industries' powered jetpack/jacket got to kick off its first race in the 2024 series, starting off in Dubai with a 7-man stack. The race garnered headlines around the world promising a eye-popping sprint of jetpack-equipped racers bobbing and weaving in between high-altitude skyscrapers, but the ultimate result was understandably tamer. Racers operated over a nearby river, still making the most of Dubai's skyline, but far from the images of thrilling death-tempting jetpackin' expected by the uninitiated.

Colorado Pilots Association Rallies the Troops

HB24-1235 "Bad Not Just for Colorado Aviation, But as a Precedent Nationwide"

The Colorado Pilots Association has called upon its members, friends, and stakeholders throughout the state to push back on the imposition of HB24-1235, "Reduce Aviation Impacts on Communities" in its current form. They contend that the "bill would be bad not just for Colorado aviation, but as a precedent nationwide," thanks to stipulations that are decidedly unfriendly to aviation as a whole. The bill has a handful of elements and grant establishing mechanisms nestled inside that could very easily be used to stifle aviation operations and further regulate smaller airfields into oblivion, particularly in areas with already contentious neighbors.

Also: Odysseus Lander Lying Prone, HAL Rebrands, Enstrom Adds AC, Hartzell Bumps Up Warranty

The (truly) legendary Burt Rutan will return to Oshkosh in 2024 with appearances and forums coinciding with the 50th anniversary of his VariEze canard aircraft design.

The three finalist cities are Casper, Wyo., Pueblo, Colo. and Roswell, N.M.

Channel-Switching System Hardens X10D's Performance in the 'Battlespace'

Skydio announced that customers have begun receiving the first of its X10D, its flagship defense and government drone. The announcement follows the successful rollout of the older X2D, which has seen thousands of systems delivered across the USA and its allies around the world.

Airborne-Flight Training 02.29.24: ABS Training, SWA-Flyhouse, UTI-Miramar

Also: GAMA 3.6% Rise, Daher Internships, JetBlue Pilots, Set Jet Kaput

The American Bonanza Society has announced it will wind back on in-person educational events, ending its direct participation in real-life flight training. The group said that it decided to pivot away from flight training after a year of member study, looking directly at what educational resources saw the most demand in the group. As it happens, flight training wasn't nearly as popular as internet-based offerings. FlyHouse has partnered with the Southwest Airlines Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program. Destination 225° is a springboard at Southwest for those seeking an aviation career. Budding pilots who aspire to fly in the right seat at Southwest Airlines must complete required coursework, flight training, and all regulatory requirements to apply for their commercial pilot's licenses. Universal Technical Institute has received FAA approval for its Airframe and
