Airborne 02.26.24: Onerous Piper AD, AEA LIVE Coverage, Belgian F-16 Demos

Also: More Balloonacy, Collier Trophy Nom's, Daher Internships, New Glenn Debut

Over-reach, maybe? EAA and the EAA Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA) have both filed comments opposing a sweeping airworthiness directive (AD) proposed by the FAA affecting almost every high-wing vintage Piper aircraft. The AD would require rudders built of 1025 carbon steel to be replaced with new rudders made from 4130N low-alloy steel. It’s THAT time of year... and we’re just weeks away from ANN’s annual LIVE webcast of the uber-exciting Aircraft Electronics Association Convention and Trade Show... where ALL the real cool things in the avionics world are seen for the first time... and again, we’re doing this live. Starting at 0830 Central Time, on Monday, March 19th, ANN will start programming LIVE from Dallas, TX, and will offer FIRST looks at upwards of 30 or so companies participating in the ever-exciting ‘New Product Introduc

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

Also: Air Canada ChatBot, USPA Seeks Action, JetBlue Pilots, G700 Records

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

Aero-TV: Joby Aviation Eyes 2025 Entry Into Service

An eVTOL Company With Big Plans For The Future

ANN correspondent Rex Alexander took a beat to check in with Joby Aviation, getting the news from Head of Government Affairs Greg Bowles on how things are going for the nascent eVTOL industry. Joby is faced with a complex soup of government regulations at home and abroad, helping to carve out a regulatory niche for aircraft that straddle multiple categories of aeronautical novelty at the same time - Joby’s aircraft sports 6 battery-powered tiltrotors and seating for 4, a never-before-seen recipe in the world of commercial aviation. As such they’re writing the book as they go, working with the Air Force’s AFWERX program and FAA to establish just what the industry needs ahead of planned commercial service in 2025.

Airborne-NextGen 02.27.24: Drone Arrest, Wisk-TX Air Taxi, New Glenn

Also: 800 Drones 4 Ukraine, Scheibel Wins, More Balloonacy, Collier Trophy Nom's

An enterprising Pennsylvania man has been making a living by offering his drone services to local deer hunters, tracking down the game they hit in an effort to make good on their kills (and eliminate undue suffering to some animals)  - a job the state arrested him for. Wisk Aero has entered into a partnership with the City of Sugar Land, Texas, to bring their electric, 12-engine VTOL aircraft to taxi service in the area. Wisk has been hard at work pursuing regulatory approval for their 4-seat, 6th generation air taxi, looking forward to starting Part 135 passenger operations within a handful of years. Blue Origin's New Glenn vehicle was successfully rolled out and upended for the first time, this week, on the pad at Launch Complex 36 (LC-36). The upending is one in a series of major manufacturing and integrated test milestones in preparation for New Glenn’s

Airborne 02.22.24: Set Jet Kaput, Eclipse Chase, Defending GA-Again

Also: Lakewood Airport v SportAv Haters, UTI-Miramar A&P Program, AERO Friedrichshafen, SnF 24 Update

Set Jet, a private jet operator hoping to carve out a niche offering by-the-seat charter flights, has quietly folded up shop and closed down after running out of investor money. For the firm's almost 3,000-strong membership base, the news is bad all around, according to an apologetic but disappointing email. Set Jet's operations are completely closed. Delta Air Lines will be offering passengers a chance to view the upcoming solar eclipse from the air, using an Airbus A220-300 with "premium viewing, extra-large windows" to follow the path of the eclipse at its peak. Delta Flight DL 1218 will take off from Austin, Texas at 12:15 Central, and land in Detroit, Michigan at 16:20 Eastern, following a track that will provide them with the greatest exposure to the eclipse. A group of GA-related stakeholders addressed proposed Senate regulations

A US Atty, Jacqueline C. Romero, is hitting the media with the announcement that she has filed a complaint in US District Court against Michael DiCiurcio of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In this complaint, the United States alleges that DiCiurcio operated drones, 'unlawfully and unsafely in the Philadelphia area between at least December 2019 to the present. The FAA has published the notice and preflight info for this year's Sun 'n Fun Aerospace Expo, getting aviators ready for a jaunt down to Lakeland, Florida. The notice establishes arrival and departure procedures from April 8th to the 14th. Able Flight has seen its "greatest number of flight training scholarships for people with a disability in a single year," seeing 10 new recipients enter the training pipeline as the group heads into 2024.
