Airborne 10.11.22: EPA v Aviation, Compton Abbas Sold, R66 NVGs

Also: Aviators Model Code of Conduct, Snowbird Report, Tom Reilly Honored, John Ballantyne Goes West

The EPA has proposed to declare emissions from piston-engine aircraft operating on leaded fuel a danger to public health.

Emissions from the 190,000 U.S. general aviation airplanes operating on leaded fuel account for about seventy percent of the lead entering the atmosphere, according to U.S. government estimates—which are renowned for their accuracy, impartiality, and freedom from politicization (NOT!). The folks that run the idyllic Compton Abbas Airfield have confirmed that it has been sold by the Hughes family to Ashcombe Estates Ltd, owned and operated by movie icon, Guy Ritchie. The new owners will occupy the airfield from the 1st February 2023, and they endeavor to take over the running of the business as seamlessly as possible, continuing to provide café and licensed airfield facilities. Robinson Helicopter has received FAA certification for the Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible configuration of its R66 police helicopter. Such certification is predicated upon evaluation of the helicopter’s interior and exterior lighting, as well as its instruments and avionics—all of which must be deemed conducive to day or night flight operations with or without the use of night vision goggles. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
