Airborne 05.12.21: 300th Bell 505, Unifor v ALPA, Beech Training

Also: B-1Bs Resume Flight Ops, PC-24 Goes Lithium, CAF Mile High Wing, Coast Guard Awards 4

The 300th Bell 505 Jet Ranger X has been delivered to the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF).

The first Bell 505 was delivered in 2017, and today there are 300 aircraft in operation across six continents, with customers logging more than 70,000 global fleet hours. Canadian Pilot’s Union, Unifor, has stated that they, 'will not tolerate interference in our democratic and pilot lead bargaining process with Cargojet by the self-serving US based Airline Pilots Association Intl. (ALPA) making ill-informed public statements.' "To have the president of ALPA preach from Virginia to our pilots on the bargaining committee about fatigue rules and safety is condescending, arrogant and disrespectful," said Jerry Dias in a written response to ALPA's public statement and posted letters to Unifor and Cargojet. The ABS Air Safety Foundation has released the Beechcraft Essential Systems and Techniques course: the BEST program. BEST is designed to be the next generation enhancement of the American Bonanza Society's Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program (BPPP) which, since 1983, has 'provided the best in Beechcraft pilot training.' All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
