News from Aero-News Network
Airborne 06.12.19: Belite Fire, Qantas Pilot Academy, Hummel Fly-In

Also: Purdue Aviatrixes, Astronaut Good Retires, Mitsubishi Negotiating W/Bombardier, New KGSO Tower The folks at Belite Aircraft were alerted late Friday night to a fire by local emergency services personnel that was taking place at their factory. James and Karen Wiebe reported that, “Arriving a few minutes later, the scene was filled with fire trucks and emergency vehicles and swarms of firemen and water hoses. It appears that the fire started at our CNC router dust collection system. Intense smoke filled the building, and my office and much of our building contents was destroyed. The back area of the building (in the production area), everything higher than 6' off the ground was melting or burned. Much of our raw inventory and all of our older collections of parts for older aircraft designs (for instance, procub and ultracub) was upstairs. Applications are being accepted for the new Qantas Group Pilot Academy, due to open its doors in Toowoomba, Australia, in September. The Academy is part of the Qantas Group’s strategy to build a long-term talent pipeline for its own airlines. Estimates suggest that 790,000 more pilots will be required globally over the next 20 years. If you're curious about Hummel airplanes, you've got a chance to get up-close and personal with the planes, pilots and company representatives at the Hummel Gathering July 6th at Williams County Airport in northwest Ohio. The company will display the UltraCruiser, H5 and Hummelbird and is open to anyone that just enjoys aviation. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!

Airborne 06.14.19: Falcon Heavy, Electric Speed Record, GPS Failure

Also: CFM56 Engine Fleet, E-175 Makes 2 Emergency Landings, E-175 Makes Two Emergency Ldgs, 737 MAX Pilots Let Go When SpaceX next launches a Falcon Heavy booster, currently set for June 22, it will use two previously-flow engine cores. The flight, part of the DOD's Space Test Program-2, will be the first time Falcon Heavy has flown on re-used boosters, and the third Falcon Heavy flight overall. The launch is currently set for 11:30 p.m. EDT from Launch Complex 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center. The two side boosters will be the previously-flown engines. They were used to launch the Arabsat-6A satellite in April. The cores, which are the more powerful "Block 5" variant of the booster, landed back at the Kennedy Space Center after the launch. Rolls-Royce anticipates that its ACCEL ... “Accelerating the Electrification of Flight” ... airplane will attempt to break the speed record for an electric airplane next year, and the plane is also looking like a contender in the Reno Air Race. The ACCEL is currently undergoing flight trials at Gloucestershire airport outside Cheltenham, England. The program is intended to pioneer a third wave of aviation in support of Rolls-Royce’s strategy to champion electrification. Regional carriers operating for American, United and Delta Airlines were forced to cancel hundreds of flights over last weekend due to an issue with their GPS systems. The FAA issued an advisory saying "Certain aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins GPS 4000-100 and select ADS-B Our GPS receivers are indicating "ADS-B Fail, unavailable, TCAS Fail or Transponder Fail messages. "The FAA command center (DCC) is suspending pre-coordination with DCC of those aircraft impacted by the Rockwell Collins GPS issue that have working transponders.

“We’re really happy to welcome the Air Force to the Andretti family for the Indy 500 with Conor and a full season across all our cars. Having five American drivers represent the team at America’s biggest race was very special and we’re honored to have the opportunity to pay tribute to the brave men and women of the U.S. Air Force. Having the Air Force with us, not just at Indy, but full season makes us very proud.” Source: Michael Andretti, Andretti Autosport chairman and chief executive officer, discussing how the the Air Force brand was on full display at the Indianapolis 500 auto race May 26, as Air Force Recruiting sponsored the No. 25 car driven by Conor Daly and was an associate sponsor for the Andretti Autosport team and its four drivers, including Alexander Rossi, who placed second in the race.

AMA Drone Report 06.13.19: UK Drone Protest, New Amazon UAV, SafeAir Mavic

Also: Drone Safety At UAS Symposium, Microsoft FlightSim, Urban Air Mobility, Drone Airspace Webinar Model airplane pilots in the UK are taking issue with proposed drone regulations set to go into effect in November, saying that the new rules could cause harm to their long-standing hobby. Representatives of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) met the Aviation Minister Baroness Vere last week to discuss the situation. Under the proposal, the UK CAA would require the operators of all unmanned aircraft, including model airplanes, to pay a registration fee equivalent to about $21, acquire a license and take a competency test every three years. BMFA chief executive David Phipps said the proposed regulations should not be applied to model airplane pilots. Amazon has taken the wraps off their latest drone concept -- combining elements of a rotorcraft and fixed wing airframe. This concept may serve as the backbone of a delivery effort that could eventually drop toothpaste and other household goods right to your doorstep-- with services that could conceivably start within a few months. Drone safety company ParaZero Technologies, together with the Northern Plains UAS Test Site (NPUASTS), has completed the testing and compliance process for ParaZero's SafeAir Mavic in accordance with ASTM F3322-18. ASTM F3322-18 Standard Specification for UAS Parachutes was designed to enable civil aviation authorities (CAAs), like the FAA, to determine whether a parachute system is airworthy for flight over human beings. Among other requirements, the standard defines over 45 aerial deployment tests in various failure scenarios, verified by a third party. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!

AIRMET In-flight weather advisories issued only to amend the area forecast concerning weather phenomena which are of operational interest to all aircraft and potentially hazardous to aircraft having limited capability because of lack of equipment, instrumentation, or pilot qualifications. AIRMETs concern weather of less severity than that covered by SIGMETs or Convective SIGMETs. AIRMETs cover moderate icing, moderate turbulence, sustained winds of 30 knots or more at the surface, widespread areas of ceilings less than 1,000 feet and/or visibility less than 3 miles, and extensive mountain obscurement.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (06.17.19)

Aero Linx: Continental Luscombe Association Welcome to this page and to the whole site where you can be able to now things about the association. Airplanes are manufactured by different companies. They have their own features that people can like and so they were bought. They could have their own glory days but they can still continue to display their usefulness even as time passes by. Having an airplane can also boost someone’s confidence just like having a car. It can also be that a person is fond of flying. Not all can become a pilot and not all also can own their own airplane. So whatever side you can be, you can see that each have their own benefit. They also present each advantage to the owner. As Luscombe planes had been made, they are still in existence today and could fly. The founder of the company that made the plane from start to finish is Donald A. Luscombe. The company though had to file for bankruptcy. They had produced already planes that the public likes and so there are many who owns those aircraft that was made long years ago. That is why the association was formed so that owners can also have time to meet other owners and have fun flying together. The association is non-profit and it gathers owners annually which also features different activities like flying competition. It is usually done in California which has become the culture of the association and the owners of aircraft.
