Airborne 04.22.22: YouTube Aero-Idiot, Red Bull Plane Swap, Mask Mandate

Also: Airline Cuts, VoloCity Test Flight, Flight 3407 Family Condemnation, Embraer Expands

Youtuber and adrenaline chaser Trevor Jacob has had his private pilot certificate revoked, according to recent reports.

Journalists contacted him to confirm a letter sent to him from the FAA that demanded he surrender his PPL or face civil penalties. In his email contact with the soon-to-be former pilot, Times reporter Eduardo Medina describes Jacob as seemingly unaware of the letter, asking where they had learned of the rescission. Long time boundary-pusher and skydiver Luke Aikins and Andy Farrington, members of the Red Bull Air Force crew, will attempt to exchange planes while in flight. In practice, the maneuver has been planned to have Aikins and Farrington, both pilots, put their Cessna 182s into a synchronized nosedive at 14,000 feet, stop the engines, cross over each other in mid-air and bring 'em down for a regular landing. ews of the CDC's mask mandate being struck down in court has not gone over well with the Justice Department, who recently filed an appeal disputing the outcome of the case. On the surface, it may appear the Department aims to reinstall the mask mandate, deferring to the CDC in its belief that maintaining the order is in the interest of the public good. The surprise court ruling and subsequent change was met with varied reactions. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
