Airborne 04.03.23: Air Race X, King Scholarship, Kodiak Upgrades

Also: FAA Wants safety, MCI Aviation Director Retiring, FedEx Shrinks Schedule, DA42 to UAE Training Program

As the curtains close on Reno's final Air Race, another contender may have its eye on ascending tot its vacant throne - Air Race X, a conceptually similar, but new take on the sport. 

World Champion air racers Matt Hall and Yoshihide Muroya announced a presser revealing their plan to combine traditional air racing with digitized, augmented reality to create a world series of sorts. John King meant no offense when he said of Tracy Atobatele; “You are not normal!” In point of fact, Mr. King’s words were intended as high praise for the winner of the 2023 NAFI/King Schools scholarship. Valued at over $18,000, the annual scholarship includes a $5,000 stipend and access to King School’s entire range of instructional materials and videos. Daher's series of announcements at Sun 'n Fun 2023 continued through the event, with even more attention paid to previous iterations of the Kodiak 100. Early on, the company announced a 5-bladed, quieter propeller retrofit for Series 1, 2, and 3 of the Kodiak 100. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
