Airborne 04.13.22: Savage Norden STOL, GAMI Unleaded Avgas, Flexjet Hires!

Also: First Permanent Vertiport, Pilatus Liked 2021, FAA Cert Boss, Piper SnF Seminole Sale

SportairUSA has reported that the American version of the Savage Norden by Zlin Aviation has received an FAA certificate of airworthiness in the category of Special Light Sport Aircraft (SLSA). SportairUSA is the distributor and service center for Savage and other sport aircraft in the USA.

 “The Norden is a high performing, aluminum-wing airplane with electrically controlled leading-edge slats, designed and thoroughly tested for short-field and off-runway performance,” SportairUSA said. GAMI is immensely close to full, fleet-wide certification for their unleaded 100LL replacement. GAMI has been hard at work for the last 12 years to complete development of their G100UL lead-free aviation fuel, now awaiting the final step in the process to bring it to the industry at large. All that stands in the way now, they say, is a signature from the Wichita Aircraft Certification Office that would approve an expanded AML Engine and Aircraft Supplemental Type Certificate. That could happen at any moment. Fractional private jet operator Flexjet has announced its expansion plans, which will see the addition of 350 pilots and 50 aircraft to be integrated by the end of 2022. The pandemic, oddly enough, was quite kind to fractional and private jet operators, as swathes of well-heeled clientele found the climate aboard commercial carriers far more troublesome than it was worth. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
