Montaer Grows with New Service Provider, Operator

With a Foothold in the US, Up-and-Comer Finds Footing with Expanding Clientele

Ocala Aviation Flight Services announced a partnership with Montaer Aircraft that will see them use the MC-01 aircraft as the primary trainer in its Part 61 and Part 141 operations. The agreement “marks a significant step in Ocala Aviation’s mission to modernize its training fleet, enhance operational efficiency, and provide unparalleled training experiences to its new students,” though price probably factors in there somewhere too. The relationship will also see Ocala take up the role of service provider for the MC-01 aircraft, providing sales, training and support to would-be Montaer customers.

Busy Week for John and Martha King

Everyone's Ground School Teachers Are Always Popular Around the Patch

John and Martha King have had a busy week at Sun 'n Fun 2024, pulled this way and that as they bounced from one interview, award, or speaking engagement to the next. Among that roster of interviews, John & Martha's appearance on the SNF Morning Brief - hosted by Aero-News Editor in Chief Jim Campbell - was surely a high point. But along the way, the Kings managed to get a whole lot done. First off, Martha awarded the Women in Aviation International Martha King Scholarship for Female Flight Instructors to Jamie Klaes, an Alaskan pilot who's quickly becoming a pillar of the rural flying community there.

Textron Updates Piston Lineup with Some Handy QoL Adjustments

USB Ports, Added Pockets, and Powered Headset Plugs Further Refine Classic Aircraft

Textron came to Sun 'n Fun with their updated piston lineup, sporting some light revisions that save a chunk of money for those who planned to retrofit their next purchase anyways. It's nice to see, since this upgrade actually improves the livability of each plane. On the C-172 Skyhawk, owners can now enjoy a set of USB type A (the big square one) and Type C (the smaller, reversible one) ports at each seat location. A pair of side pockets on the walls add some much-appreciated space to stow small little baubles, checklists, and aids in flight.

Airborne 04.12.24: SnF24!, G100UL Is Here, Holy Micro, Plane Tags

Also: Seaplane Pilots Association, Rotax 916’s First Year, Gene Conrad

After a decade and a half of struggling with the FAA and other aero-politics, G100UL is in production and there are a million gallons currently available. You can NEVER have too many good aids in keeping a flight safe... Holy Micro has an interesting approach to keeping pilots informed. The folks at Plane Tags have collected memorabilia from over 200 aircraft of all makes and categories... And offer mementos of great planes in aviation’s proud history. SPA’s Steve McCaughey updates the Airborne team on the latest and greatest in one of the aviation world’s coolest (sometimes we mean that literally) aviation pursuits. ANN had the honor of helping to introduce the Rotax 915 at last year’s Innovation Preview and we got a chance to review what a year in the field is teaching the aviation biz.

Gogo Gets Approval for Galileo Antennae

HDX, FDX Development Coming Along Smoothly

Gogo Business Aviation has been granted FCC approval for their Gogo Galileo Terminals, allowing them to commercialize and operate the HDX and FDX antenna terminals on US-registered aircraft. The company will soon be rolling out the Galileo HDX and FDX antenna terminals for business aircraft, that is, once they finish their battery of testing. The HDX will be flight tested sometime this summer, being placed on the Gogo Challenger 300 testbed. “Receiving the ESIM license for the HDX and FDX terminals represents an important milestone in bringing the Gogo Galileo service to market by year end,” said Crystal Gordon, executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary for Gogo.

FlySto Finally Provides Platform-Agnostic Video Sync

Nifty Application Allows for Thorough Post-Flight Debriefing With All the Data You Could Ask For

Sun 'n Fun is often inundated with all manner of apps, programs, and schedulers, to the point it's easy for them to blur together as one walks through all 1,000 booths (a very rough estimate, but it sure feels like it sometimes). FlySto stood apart from the pack by offering a simple little bit of technological ease: An automated way to sync up footage with the log of a flight, regardless of source or operating system. The end result combines video of any flight with a configurable overlay showing its position, parameters, location, route, and even accuracy against an approach.

Airborne 04.10.24: SnF24!, A50 Heritage Reveal, HeliCycle!, Montaer MC-01

Also: Bushcat Woes, Hummingbird 300 SL 4-Seat Heli Kit, Carbon Cub UL

The newest Junkers is a faithful recreation that mates a 7-cylinder Verner radial engine to the airframe offered last year with a Rotax 912... but a desire for more historic accuracy led to the A50 Heritage. The Helicycle has gone through a number of owners and iterations but looks to be in good hands with a company that keeps tweaking and improving this unique turbine single-engine, single-seat kit helicopter. The Brazilian Montaer MC-01 is about to be joined by a four-place sibling, the MC-04. The two-seater is holding its own though with a number of impressive fleet sales and growing popularity here in the states. Life throws challenges at you now and then... and the folks got thrown a curveball at the start of SnF24. AeroSport has been the US Distributor for SkyReach and its BushCat light sport aircraft... until the manufacturer announced that they were not going to offering kits
