Airborne 12.29.23: Shoreham Pilot, Curious Icon TC, Ice v Remos

Also: Butterfly Prototype, New Airbus Toulouse Facility, New Haven Airport, Red Hawk Testing

The aviator whose airshow accident led to 11 deaths at a 2015 air show, has applied to the UK Civil Aviation Authority in the hopes of getting his license reinstated. 

+The incident left a bad taste in many a British mouth, when Andrew Hill's Hawker Hunter jet crashed into a nearby highway during a failed loop maneuver. British media made quite a sensation of their over-hyped, breathless, coverage. Overpriced, offering meager performance, and burdened with a history of disappointment, have made it hard for those who inherited the Icon program to get ahead. The company has turned to a certification program that has been all but abandoned by others in the SportPlane community. The FAA has granted Type Certification for the ICON A5 in the primary category. A recent incident put an exclamation mark under the importance of clearing aircraft of ice before flight - even when operating out of “warm and sunny” regions. The NTSB Report makes note of a fateful, chilly morning in Taylor, Arizona, when a Remos Gx light sport plane took off with early morning frost attached to the windows and control surfaces. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
