Airborne 11.21.22: Balloon Medical Regs, Area 51 Website Raid, A/C Registration

Also: Dutch Court Rules On Malaysia Downing, Air Cargo To Double?, Airbus A330 SAF, Alto's 100th

After negative media attention following a somewhat unique 2016 commercial balloon ride accident, the FAA has adopted a final rule requiring commercial hot-air balloon pilots to hold medical certificates when flying paying passengers.

The rule mandates a second-class medical certificate, the same standard required for other commercial pilots. Agents of the Air Force and FBI raided two homes owned by Joerg Arnu, the proprietor and webmaster of Dreamland Resort, a website that focuses on Area 51. Arnu reported that his homes in Las Vegas and Rachel, Nevada had been raided “without warning” on 03 November 2022 “by 15-20 agents in full riot gear.” “I believe the search, executed with completely unnecessary force by overzealous government agents, was meant as a message to silence the Area 51 research community,” Arnu remarked. The FAA has finalized a rule by which the duration of aircraft registration certificates will be extended from three to seven years. The draft of the direct final rule states that aircraft owners shall henceforth be required to confirm their aircraft registration information and renew their certificates every seven years... All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
