Also: Project Titan, Part 23 Rule, SportAv HoF, Iran Air, FL's Space Coast, Galaxy Note7 Warnings, Boeing Employees When Dynon and EAA announced that they had worked together to obtain an STC allowing the Dynon EFIS-D10A and EFIS-D100 displays to be installed in type certificated aircraft, it was a major step forward in bringing the technology and safety found in experimental homebuilt aircraft to the market for type certificated aircraft. Now, an expanded model list for EAA’s Accessible Safety STC has been granted by the FAA. The approval is now includes six models of Beechcraft airplanes, 14 various Cessna models of aircraft, five models of Piper PA series aircraft, and some models of the Maule, Mooney, and Grumman AA series aircraft. This weekend, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 successfully delivered 10 satellites to low-Earth orbit for Iridium. The 10 satellites are the first of at least 70 satellites that SpaceX will launch for Iridium’s next generation global satellite constellation, called - Iridium NEXT. And - in the SpaceX tradition of putting on a really on good show, they not only successfully launched the satellites, they also recovered the Falcon 9 first stage booster on a robot recovery ship in the Pacific Ocean. Transportation Secretary Designate, Elaine Chao, faced the Senate Commerce Committee last week for her confirmation hearing, giving few specifics on some pending aviation issues. The FAA's spending authorization is set to expire on September 30, and the issue of ATC Privatization is likely to come up again when Congress debates another long-term spending bill for the agency.

Also: Parrot Layoffs, CES/AMA Expo/KSMO, 737 SAIB, Piper PA-31T, John Pope, Washington State, JetBlue Disturbance Pending sanctioning from the recognizing organizations, it looks like the Gulfstream G650ER continues to set records. A G650ER took off from Ohio’s John Glenn Columbus International Airport and landed at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport 14 hours and 35 minutes later, covering 6,750 nautical miles at an average cruise speed of Mach point eight-five. Following that flight, the aircraft flew 6,143 nautical miles from Taipei Taoyuan International Airport to Arizona’s Scottsdale Airport, cruising at Mach point nine-oh entire trip.
