Bell Boasts Sale to Unnamed Middle Eastern State

429 Aircraft Bound for Public Service... Somewhere, They Won't Say

Bell Textron snagged an unnamed Middle Eastern country's order for a quartet of Bell 429 helicopters, only letting slip that the birds will go on to "parapublic missions. It's an enigmatic but fun little brag at this year's Heli-Expo, the best time of the year for brands to shake some hands and move some metal. The aircraft will go out to serve in addition to the 90 Bell 429s currently "supporting law enforcement, firefighting and parapublic missions globally", or the greater Bell model family at more than 500 such aircraft around the world.

Classic Aero-TV: PS Engineering Double Threat--Ultimate GA Audio Panel Innovator

From 2016 (YouTube Version): Audio Panels Engineered for Pilots with Features that Make Sense…

At EAA AirVenture 2016, PS Engineering Inc. was talking about, and showing, their PMA450A and PMA8000G audio panels for aircraft. While audio panels started off as simply a box that allowed switching between a couple of radios, we are now a long way from that starting point. About the only thing these audio panels don’t do is start your morning coffee, and we’ll have to see if that shows up next year. ANN News Editor, Tom Patton, stopped by the PS Engineering display and listened about what these audio panels have to offer from Mark Scheuer, who is the President of PS Engineering. Scheuer takes no shame in saying that PS Engineering provides the top audio panels in the industry.

NTSB Final Report: Beech 58 Aircraft

(Pilot) Did Not Realize He Was Approaching The Wrong Airport Until He Was “Too Low And Too Slow”

Analysis: The pilot reported that his intended destination airport was Cedar Ridge Airport (GA62), Griffin, GA, but due to misidentification of the airport while airborne, he landed at Brook Bridge Aerodrome (8GA9), Vaughn, GA. He reported that he did not realize he was approaching the wrong airport until he was “too low and too slow.” The airplane touched down on a shared taxiway/driveway before impacting a utility pole with the left wing. Subsequently, the airplane spun and impacted trees resulting in substantial damage to the left wing, nose structure, and right wing.

Air Resources Board Solution Would Do Little to Bolster SAF Use In-State, While Adding Additional Cost Burden

The National Business Aviation Association published a letter to the California Air Resources Board, surprisingly taking issue with a proposed regulation that they believe would be counterproductive to rolling out increasing proportions of sustainable fuel. "The business aviation industry and CARB have the same goal here: to reduce carbon emissions through safe alternative fuels,” said Phil Derner, NBAA’s regional director for the Western region. “We urge CARB to work in partnership with the industry to achieve our common objectives.”

FAA Authorizes Academy of Model Aeronautics Events

NOTAM Pathway Secures Model Events Sans Remote ID

After much ado, concerns about event sanctions held by model aircraft groups associated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics have been put to rest. Under the authorization, the FAA grants AMA members the ability to operate without broadcasting remote ID information at AMA Sanctioned Events. It's great news for the group, who has been operating with trepidation since a 2021 Final Rule made it seem like they wouldn't have a pathway to comply. Not all lightweight little model planes have the space, aerodynamics, or power to drive a remote ID module, but without authorization, they would be effectively grounded for large events.
