Airborne 04.12.23: Cornwall Update, VARMA Initiative, Florida v UAVs

Also: Nolen's Future, Swift Fuels Extension, FAA Tests & PHAK, Spirit of Flight Museum

This breaks our hearts... The U.K.’s Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre (CAHC) has been confronted with the very outcome it has battled mightily to circumvent. 

The Cornwall Council—the governing body of England’s Cornwall County and steward of the Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY) upon which the CAHC’s museum has operated since 2015—has set forth that subject museum must vacate its current premises immediately. The FAA has unveiled a new program for the use of off-the-shelf parts in type-certificated aircraft. The approval is the first granted under the new Vintage Aircraft Replacement and Modification Article (VARMA) program. Owners and operators of vintage aircraft are familiar with the challenges inherent locating and securing FAA-authorized parts for their machines. Infuriating conundrums arise when perfectly functional and safe alternative (non OEM) parts are readily available but cannot be legally utilized. A bill drafted by Florida lawmakers in 2020 and passed in 2021 went into effect this week. The law bans Sunshine State government agencies from utilizing drones made by a “foreign country of concern,” which is to tacitly state China and strongly imply DJI—currently on the US Treasury Department blacklist. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
