General Atomics' run at developing the Liberty Lifter ground effect aircraft has been put to rest, with their competitor, Aurora Flight Sciences, retaining theirs for the time being. The Liberty Lifter is one funky duck, as far as prospective military projects go. Looking forward to a contentious Pacific theater, DoD planners see a dire need for seaborne transport, beyond the old school's island-hopping and airstrip-chopping. Hybrid eVTOL manufacturer, or better said, developer, showed off its latest flight test using a smaller scaled version of its high-wing Cavorite X5. The short tethered test flight shows the Cavorite take off from a standstill, lifting off and testing its behavior as it gently moves through a handful of power settings and control checks.

Their stories and unique perspectives on the aircraft showcased at Oshkosh are insightful, poignant, and important for the public to hear.” Source: Connie Bowlin, past president of the EAA Warbirds of America, speaking about this year's Warbirds In Review effort for Oshkosh 2024.

Reset the Drama-Clock, NetJets is Fighting Again

Union Brass Gets Grilled By Company, Inflaming Tensions Anew

Just as they got themselves a new contract and everything seemed like it would head back to normal, things spiral out of control as the NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots says "Managers use intimidation, aggressive interrogation tactics to silence the Union's voice." NJASAP VP Paulette Gilbert was rewarded for her "unblemished" 23 years with the company with a 3-hour "interrogation" by the company, too. The Union is none too pleased that the company felt it appropriate to grill her over "details about various matters, including the Union's lawful and protected activities conducted by the strategy group." Their Executive Board views it as a "direct attack on the Union, its members and elected officials."

VAI Starts Drive to Save NYC Heliport

West 30th Street Heliport Imperiled by Construction

Vertical Aviation International is worried that an NYC helicopter port is in danger of permanent closure courtesy of a recently introduced piece of legislation, and they want to stir up support to keep it alive. The legislation, A.10224/S.9408 by Simone & Hoylman, would permanently close the West 30th Street Heliport (KJRA) within New York City's Hudson River Park.

Somalian ATC Feud Over?

Disputed Mogadishu FIR Appears to Return to Normal

In reality, it was less a "pirate radio station" than it was a territorial dispute, caused by two rivals claiming the same slice of airspace. Today, things should be largely done, now that the Somaliland Civil Aviation and Airports Authority has published a small map of its purview. At the beginning of 2024, Somaliland lay claim to a large swath of the Mogadishu FIR, extending out into the sea.
