Classic Aero-TV: The Greater Great Lakes - Flying A Modernized Classic Biplane

From 2014 (YouTube Version): Stunning Update Of A Classic Biplane May Also Be Today's Best Aerobatic Trainer

During the last AOPA regional Fly-in event of 2014, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, had the opportunity to take a flight in a new Great Lakes biplane. In this video he talks with Peter Bower, the president of the WACO Aircraft Corporation. Waco has now added the Great Lakes to their line of aircraft. The original Great Lakes Aircraft Company started in 1929 with a great little airplane that was especially designed for the airborne sportsman. They only built 264 airplanes, but the design was so good that it has continued to live on. Now, the Waco aircraft Corporation is producing their updated version of the Great Lakes biplane.

NTSB Final Report: Just Highlander Aircraft

The Uniform Crush Damage To Both Wings Is Consistent With The Airplane Encountering An Aerodynamic Stall Before (Impact)

Analysis: The pilot and student pilot-rated passenger departed to conduct low-level flight operations over and on a river in a remote area. After not hearing from either occupant, family members initiated a search and found the wreckage several hours later. The airplane came to rest on a remote island in the river, nose-down with the empennage in a near-vertical position. The leading edge of both wings exhibited aft accordion crush damage and the engine was pushed aft into the cabin of the airplane.

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) showed that business is doing all right, with all aircraft segments seeing a modest 3.6% increase in shipments over 2022. Overall, the biggest winners were surprisingly piston aircraft, at an 11.8% increase over 2022 shipments. The runners-up were turbine helicopters and turboprop fixed-wing aircraft, training at 10.4% and 9.6% increases respectively. The IRS will begin ramping up scrutiny on the use of corporate jets for flight departments around the country, hammering those who allegedly use their official corporate aircraft for decidedly non-corporate travel -- no matter what additional damage may result. A widow of one deceased pilot aboard Google co-founder Sergey Brin's DHC-6 Twin Otter has sued, citing his co-owners' approval for an allegedly improperly installed auxiliary fuel system.

Aero Linx: Aviation Action Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping fellow members of the aviation family.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (02.23.24)

“While the contract extension last year served as a temporary measure during the merger process, it was never intended to substitute for a comprehensive contract. In the event the merger does not go forward, JetBlue pilots are ready to achieve the full collective bargaining agreement they have earned.” Source: Captain Justin Houck, chair of the JetBlue unit of ALPA, discussing JetBlue Airways pilots... "renewed focus on negotiating a standalone collective bargaining agreement with the Company."

GAMA Sees 3.6% Rise in Aircraft Shipments

2023 Report Paints Picture of Healthy Enough Industry Cooling Off from 2021 High

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) showed that business is doing all right, with all aircraft segments seeing a modest 3.6% increase in shipments over 2022. Overall, the biggest winners were surprisingly piston aircraft, at an 11.8% increase over 2022 shipments. The runners-up were turbine helicopters and turboprop fixed-wing aircraft, training at 10.4% and 9.6% increases respectively. Overall, a 3.6% industry-wide increase isn't quite bad, but not really impressive after the eye-popping bull run seen in the post-pandemic years. Last year, 2022 was reported to boast a 6% increase over the previous year, and 2021 an even better 10.2% increase over the see-saw year of 2020.
