Captain Kirk May Soon Be Space Bound. A number of media outlets are reporting vague details about the possibility that Star Trek actor, William Shatner, (aka Captain James T Kirk) may be one of the next space tourist/passengers about an upcoming flight of a Blue Origin New Shepherd sub-orbital launch vehicle.

Reportedly set for a mid-October launch, Shatner's flight may be the subject of a documentary that is still being shopped around to various outlets. A bipartisan amendment, introduced by Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) and Representative Kai Kahele (D-HI), that would reverse the FAA’s recent policy on flight training has been accepted into the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The amendment, which encompasses the Certainty for General Aviation Pilots Act of 2021, would negate the FAA’s recent policy that requires virtually all training in experimental, limited, and primary categories to be conducted under a letter of deviation authority (LODA) or an exemption. The Planes of Fame Air Museum has announced that its 2021 Airshow, scheduled for Saturday, October 30 and Sunday, October 31, 2021, at the Chino Airport has been cancelled. “After losing the 2020 Airshow due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were looking forward to presenting this year’s show,” commented Museum president Steve Hinton. “But the difficult decision was made to cancel this year’s event. We hope 2022 will be a different story.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
