Airborne 02.23.24: GA Sales UP, IRS v BizAv, Twin Otter Ferry Suit

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. The suit describes a series of events wherein the short-legged Twin Otter hampered plans to fly the float-equipped plane all the way to Fiji, where Brin and co-owners wanted to station it for a time. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
