Airborne 08.18.23: AF BWB Prototype, Lahaina Airlift, CiES STC

Also: Enstrom Update, Powered-Lift SFAR, Folding Knee Desk, Spirit-Wayman Partnership

etZero has benefitted from a US Air Force award of $235-million to build an airliner-scale, piloted, Blended Wing Body technology demonstrator in partnership with Northrop-Grumman and Scaled Composites. 

The funds will be distributed over a four-year period culminating, presumably, in a 2027 first-flight. The planned aircraft will be assembled at Scaled Composites’s Mojave, California facility and powered, ostensibly, by a pair of Pratt & Whitney PW100-series Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines. General aviation aircraft owners and pilots mobilized their machines and mustered their skill, courage, and humanity in equal measure for purpose of establishing a supply-line by which to provide humanitarian relief to the people of fire-ravaged Lahaina. CiES’s next-generation fuel-sender—which features dynamic damping, pitch-compensation, and expanded digital communication capabilities—has been granted FAA TSO-C55a Approval. Magnetic Field Sensor technology is patented by CiES and salient to the function of the company’s fuel-level senders. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
