PilotMap.co Elevates SUN 'n FUN Airshow with Advanced Aviation Weather Solutions

In a World Of Screens, Ain't it Nice to Have Paper for a Change?

PilotMap splits from a range of read-room charting options by offering a complete, hard-wired paper map to mount on the wall, with each airfield’s weather shown by a wired LED changing with updated info. It’s a cool - if expensive - kind of functional decoration, and far more charming than having the flickering remains of the cheapest LCD tv on the shelf tuned to the NOAA’s latest weather map. PilotMap’s newest addition to their portfolio includes a range of Euro and British maps, too, covering much of continental Europe and the United Kingdom. The introduction of LED Aviation Weather/METAR Maps for the European and UK regions is an appreciated expansion into a region that isn’t always the easiest to parse at a glance.

Airborne 04.01.24: April 1st Special! CubCrafters, $paceX Taxes, Demo Retro

Also: PETA Sues, AF1 Busts TFR, 747-1000 MAX!!!, 4th Class Medical Certificate

CubCrafters is testing a new backcountry landing gear configuration that the company conceived to dramatically reduce the potential for ground loops in backcountry flying. Recognizing recent industrywide calls from regulators, insurance companies, and many in the pilot community to continue with safety innovation in the backcountry, the company sees broad applications for this new technology. The State of Florida thinks that if you buy a new or used aircraft and sign the bill of sale... this starts "the clock." It is Florida's position that for the next six months (possibly thereafter, though the burden of proof reportedly changes at that point), the state has the right to exact the requisite "Use Tax" (Sales Tax) for the fact you partook of the state's services unless you can show an equivalent Use or Sales Tax receipt from another state... now, the FDOR is casting its greed

Classic Aero-TV: The Life Aquilae

From 2023 (YouTube Version): An Eagle by Any Other Name

Originally developed as the Yuma by Alisport, an Italian aircraft manufacturer based in the Northern Italian city of Cremella, the Aquilae (ACK-will-lay) is a kit-built, STOL-capable, Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) distributed in the U.S. by Kent, Illinois-based North American Eagle. Aquilae is the Latin term for Eagle. As implied by its eligibility for certification as an LSA, the Aquilae’s maximum gross weight is 1,320-pounds. The aircraft is powered by a one-hundred-horsepower normally-aspirated, carbureted, four-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-and-air-cooled, Rotax 912 ULS engine. Built entirely with 2024-T3 Alclad aluminum fitted over a 4130 steel tube welded frame, the Aquilae can be had with either a conventional (tail-dragger) or tricycle undercarriage.

ARSA Appeals to FAA on Alcohol and Drug Testing Requirements

ARSA and Six Other Organizations Appeals to FAA Against New Drug and Alcohol Test Expansion

The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA), along with six other aviation trade associations, has submitted a joint appeal to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to withdraw its proposed rulemaking on extending drug and alcohol testing requirements to repair station personnel located outside the United States. The associations argue that the rulemaking is inconsistent with the Administrative Procedure Act's requirement for regulations to have a rational basis. The groups contend that the proposed rule unfairly targets foreign nationals by imposing regulations not applied to U.S. citizens performing similar work abroad. They also highlight that the rule would require international certificate holders to seek exemptions whenever their country's laws conflict with U.S. requirements, a task for which maintenance professionals are not equipped.

NY Appellate Court Issues Injunction Preserving Access to JPX

NY Court Upholds Injunction Preserving Public Access to East Hampton Town Airport

The New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department, has upheld a court injunction preserving public access to East Hampton Town Airport (JPX) in New York. The decision follows an attempt by the town of East Hampton to limit operations at the airport, which was found to be in non-compliance with the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 (ANCA). In May 2022, town officials sought to close the former East Hampton Airport (HTO) and open a new private-use airport with mandatory curfews and other restrictions. However, this move was blocked by a court injunction, which has now been affirmed by the appellate court.
