Airborne 01.20.23: Hydrogen Plane, Admin Controversy, Unleaded Avgas

Also: Jet It to Gogo AVANCE L3, R66 Pressure Fueling, Navy Accident, 15th Annual Midwest LSA Expo

ZeroAvia, the British/American hydrogen-electric aircraft developer, announced on 19 January 2023 that it had successfully flown a 19-seat Dornier 228 testbed aircraft, the left-engine of which had been replaced with a full-size prototype of the company’s hydrogen-electric powertrain.

The test aircraft’s right-engine remained the 776-shaft-horsepower Honeywell TPE-331 turboprop mill rightly bestowed upon the 228 by Dornier Flugzeugwerke. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is stating he will push to confirm Phillip Washington, Joe Biden’s pick for FAA Administrator. Schumer’s assertion was made in the wake of the recent FAA database failure and the grounding of nearly ten-thousand US domestic flights -- raising questions about the protracted vacancy of the FAA’s top office. A group of 7 aviation stakeholder organizations has formally submitted their comments to the EPA’s proposed endangerment finding of lead in avgas. As we've seen in recent years, leaded avgas has become a pressure point in the industry, allowing those hostile to the presence of general aviation in their communities to force out light aircraft use under the auspices of public health. While replacements for leaded aviation fuel are on the way, the changeover will take some time. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-NextGen!!!
