Airborne 01.28.22: AirCar Cert, Brooke Owens, UAL Pilots Protest

Also: Iran Jails Drone Tourist, Dreamliner Woes, Lightspeed Backpack, Super Bowl LVI TFR

Flying cars, long seen as a hallmark of futuristic aeronautical technology, may finally be on the horizon.

AirCar's prototype has been given its first airworthiness certification from the Slovakian Transport Authority, making it the first of its kind to achieve EASA standards. The testing process took 70+ hours of flight and more than 200 takeoff and landing cycles. The AirCar reportedly functions throughout the full range of flight and performance maneuvers required, while demonstrating "an astonishing static and dynamic stability in the aircraft mode." The newest batch of Brooke Owens Fellows has been announced, adding 51 new additions to the fold of 198 previous alumni. The fellowship aims to bring valuable career building opportunities to women in aviation by matching students to specific intern positions at one of the Fellowship’s industry partners. One Captain for United Airlines is decrying her treatment at the company's hands, saying her placement on unpaid leave for insisting on remaining unvaccinated against Covid-19 has left her unable to move onward with her career. Sherry Walker says that she can't find another job while cut off from the ability to earn an income, and United has blocked her retirement fund access, preventing her from being able to weather the leave until the issue shakes out in court. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
