Coast Guard MH65 Assists In Rescuing 4 From Sinking Vessel Off FL Keys

MH-65 "Dolphin" Helicopter Crew Out Of CGAS Miami Was Launched To Assist 

The Coast Guard rescued four people off a sinking boat south of Dry Tortugas National Park early Monday morning... as most of us were probably contemplating a bowl of Cheerios... The individuals were rescued amid heavy seas and weather caused by a passing storm after an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) was activated on board their vessel. Watchstanders at the Coast Guard’s Seventh District Command Center and Sector Key West received the distress signal and diverted the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Charles David, Jr. towards the boat’s position, approximately 35 nautical miles south of the Dry Tortugas. An MH-65 "Dolphin" helicopter crew out of Coast Guard Air Station Miami was also launched to the scene.

Classic Aero-TV: The Bally Bomber - The All Time Ultimate Warbird Replica?

From 2018 (YouTube Version): Aero-News Talks With The Airplane's Builder

One of the many unique airplanes at AirVenture 2018 was a 1/3-scale B-17 bomber built by Jack Bally, who talked about the 17-year project with Aero-News at the show last summer. Bally said that the idea was born over "too much beer one night with a bunch of buddies" as they talked about what kind of airplane they could build that would be the only one of its kind. They settled on the B-17, because as far as they knew, there were no flying 4-engine scale models WWII airplanes. They had originally intended to build a B-24, but that airplane would not scale properly.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (02.20.24): Remote Communications Outlet (RCO)

Remote Communications Outlet (RCO) An unmanned communications facility remotely controlled by air traffic personnel. RCOs serve FSSs. Remote Transmitter/Receivers (RTR) serve terminal ATC facilities. An RCO or RTR may be UHF or VHF and will extend the communication range of the air traffic facility. There are several classes of RCOs and RTRs. The class is determined by the number of transmitters or receivers. Classes A through G are used primarily for air/ground purposes. RCO and RTR class O facilities are nonprotected outlets subject to undetected and prolonged outages. RCO (O's) and RTR (O's) were established for the express purpose of providing ground-to-ground communications between air traffic control specialists and pilots located at a satellite airport for delivering en route clearances, issuing departure authorizations, and acknowledging instrument flight rules cancellations or departure/landing times. As a secondary function, they may be used for advisory purposes whenever the aircraft

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (02.20.24)

"Section 315 introduces requirements that would be nearly impossible and financially unattainable for these small businesses, resulting in their likely closure. If adopted, Section 315 would burden the FAA's limited resources with a flood of new certificate applications and the ongoing costs of administering flight operations under 14 CFR Part 135, diverting resources that currently oversee commercial point-to-point charter flights and other safety-critical functions." Source: From a letter by a number of aviation groups castigating the Feds for a new bit of rule-making that would drive a number of aero-business under... and in industries that have demonstrated an improving safety record for a considerable period of time... making such rule-making 'just plane foolish.'

Appellate Court To SmartSky... Nuh-Uh!

District Court Denial of SmartSky Attempt to Prevent Gogo From Selling its 5G Solution Upheld

ANN has learned that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has upheld a decision by the United States District Court for the District of Delaware in denying SmartSky Networks’ motion for a preliminary injunction against Gogo Business Aviation to keep it from selling its Gogo 5G product. The Delaware court found that SmartSky failed to establish that it is likely to succeed on the merits of its claims and that it is likely to suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not granted. The reviewing court, the Federal Circuit, in this case, affirmed that decision.

Classic Aero-TV: Going 'Pro' (Drone-Style)--Building A Career From A Hobby

From 2017 (YouTube Version): So You Wanna Fly Commercial Drones…

What does it take to move from a drone hobbyist to a professional drone operator? That was the question posed by ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell of Harold Sweet, Rental Manager for Samy’s Camera. Sweet said that first thing a potential commercial drone operator needs to consider is how they will be using their aircraft. The choices run the gamut from aircraft that would be appropriate for a photographer documenting a wedding or real estate venture to full cinematic photography.  Sweet said that it’s a good idea for the camera operator to be separate from the pilot. “We’re talking about safety, probably, number one. Sort of the teams we’ve been thinking about putting together has all those players. You’ve got to have the creative person, the camera operator, the drone operator, and the drone maintenance person too.”<
