Airborne 04.02.24: G700 Certified, Collier Trophy, Wing-Walker Busted

Also: ALPA Says Plenty of Pilots, Bell 429 E-AD, Eutelsat OneWeb STC, Bell BasiX-Pro

Gulfstream has announced that the G700 has received FAA type certification.

 

The milestone paves the way for customer deliveries. The FAA certification process also confirmed two new performance improvements for the G700, providing customers with increased flexibility and airport availability. The National Aeronautic Association has awarded the 2023 Robert J. Collier Trophy to a NASA program that saw a prop head to an asteroid and back on the OSIRIS-REX mission. The mission stands for "Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, and Security-Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx)". The FAA has revoked the license of Mike Mason, of the Mason Wing Walking Academy in Sequim, Washington, effectively shutting down his business. The FAA cited a breach of safety rules as the reason. In its Letter of Emergency Revocation of March 18, 2024, the FAA stated that "[The FAA] Administrator has determined that an emergency exists  related to safety in air commerce and that the immediate action to revoke your Airline Transport Pilot certificate is required." Mason stated that an FAA inspector had OK'd the wing-walking flights back in 2012. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
