Oshkosh 2023 Morning Brief: Day Three -- WomenVenture, Gogo, Pedal Planes!

The Third of Five Days Of Morning Brief Goodness!

Join us for our first Oshkosh 2023 Morning Brief, live from Wittman Field! We have news from the day before, a little weather report, live interviews, and a look ahead, and the day's events to come! Our luck is holding out so far with the weather, though the Constellation is apparently dealing with some engine gremlins. In the meantime, today is warbird day and there is a night airshow to boot…. With no end of excitement to see hear and endure.

Also: Able Flight, Comp Air 6.2, Hartzell is EVERYWHERE, Pelton Part 2

Catalina Aircraft, holder of the Type Certificates for the 28-5ACF Catalina, has announced the rebirth of the iconic and legendary Catalina as the Catalina II Amphibious Turboprop. A production re-start program has been formalized for the Next Generation Amphibious Aircraft (NGAA) Catalina II twin turboprop amphibious flying boat, and the company is preparing to take pre-orders. One of the more avidly anticipated displays is the promised Wisk flight demonstration here at Wittman Field. Oshkosh is becoming more and more of a hub for such demonstrations and the EAA crowds are loving every se

Airborne 07.28.23: EXTRA 330 SX, Velocity 6 VTwin, ScaleBirds P-36

Also: King Schools, Parade of Aero-Nations, C5 Galaxy, SnF2024!, Jack Pelton #5

Extra Aircraft’s pursuit of the ultimate aerobatic mount appears to have reached a new plateau… the 330 SX is a new breed of aerobat with aggressive tweaks to make it a future leader in world aerobatic competition. It looks good, it sounds great and it can carry up to six people with twin-engine redundancy… is this the best Velocity yet? Great performance, solid economy and room for the family… what’s not to like. A unique replica of an aircraft that has not gotten a lot of attention. The Verner radial powered P-36 is starting to shape up, while ki

Airborne 07.27.23: Opener Blackfly, Super Guppy!, Murphy T-Moose

Also: uAvionix Update, Samaritan Aviation, Night Airshow, Jack Pelton-Pt 4

People flock to Oshkosh from all over the world to see the latest and greatest in aviation innovation and design… and the Opener Blackfly definitely gets attention! It looks like it ate a DC-9… but the Super Guppy is an unconventional hard-working airplane… that dropped in to Oshkosh to show one and all a different side of the aviation workforce. Over the years, the ANN crew, especially Jim Campbell, has flown just about everything this company has built… and approves. Now, with new direction, the Murphy gang is back on the job. The display included a f

Airborne 07.26.23: WomenVenture, JOBY Sim, Kitfox Gear

Also: New Warbird Org, Gogo Update, Pedal Plane Parade, Pelton on Fuel

The term 'Esprit de Corps' is often associated with parts of aviation that tend to one gender... but NOT at Oshkosh... where the WAI and 99s communities (among others) have proven that women have more than the right stuff... they ARE the right stuff. How do you train the next generation of aviators to prepare for aircraft that are unlike anything they have flown before??? You simulate it... ANN’s Rex Alexander gives it a try. A Kitfox can go just about anywhere... and sometimes that means really rough turf... but a new offering makes it possible for the iconic Kitfox to go just about

Airborne 07.24.23: MOSAIC Details!, DeltaHawk DHK180, Tom Poberezny Statue

Also: Daher Upgrades, AEA’s Giveaway, Pelton on MOSAIC, MOSAIC, MOSAIC!

STICK Around for the latter end of this episode of Airborne… Got question about MOSAIC… EAA Boss Jack Pelton has a lot of info to impart! It's been years since we’ve seen a new AMERICAN powerplant…. Much less one that takes advantage of MODERN technology… but DeltaHawk will be going to production in the first half of next year and helping to modernize GA in a big way. Sadly; we lost Tom last year while Oshkosh 2022 was in the works, after a prolonged illness and we will really miss the guy. But his work lives on and now he has been memorialized with

The Second of Five Days Of Morning Brief Goodness!

Join us for our first Oshkosh 2023 Morning Brief, live from Wittman Field! We'll have news from the day before, a little weather report, live interviews, and a look ahead and the day's events to come! We predicted a massive opening day for OSH23 and we weren’t wrong. We’re approaching gridlock, airplane-wise and road traffic was significant…. Despite some bizarre traffic patterns installed by Oshkosh PD. We are seeing some amazing airplanes here… the Super-Guppy is as ugly and fascinating as ever while a real-live Constellation should be flying several times this week. An

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (08.10.23): Aircraft Conflict Alert

Aircraft Conflict Alert A safety alert issued by ATC to aircraft under their control if ATC is aware of an aircraft that is not under their control at an altitude which, in the controller's judgment, places both aircraft in unsafe proximity to each other. With the alert, ATC will offer the pilot an alternate course of action when feasible; e.g., “Traffic Alert, advise you turn right heading zero niner zero or climb to eight thousand immediately.”

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (08.11.23): Go Around

Go Around

Instructions for a pilot to abandon his/her approach to landing. Additional instructions may follow. Unless otherwise advised by ATC, a VFR aircraft or an aircraft conducting visual approach should overfly the runway while climbing to traffic pattern altitude and enter the traffic pattern via the crosswind leg. A pilot on an IFR flight plan making an instrument approach should execute the published missed approach procedure or proceed as instructed by ATC; e.g., “Go around” (additional instructions if required).
