EASA Declares Boeing 737 MAX Safe To Return To Service

"...A Significant Milestone On A Long Road..."

EASA has finally given its seal of approval for the return to service of the Boeing 737 MAX, mandating a package of software upgrades, electrical wiring rework, maintenance checks, operations manual updates and crew training which will allow the plane to fly safely in European skies after almost two years on the ground. “We have reached a significant milestone on a long road,” said EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky. “Following extensive analysis by EASA, we have determined that the 737 MAX can safely return to service. This assessment was carried out in full independence of Boeing or the Federal Aviation Administration and without any economic or political pressure – we asked difficult questions until we got answers and pushed for solutions which satisfied our exacting safety requirements. We carried out our own flight tests and simulator sessions and did not rely on others to do this for us..."

Airborne 01.27.21: Terrafugia is An LSA, Axiom Space, HondaJet Elite

Also: Ninety-Nines, Hartzell Talon Prop, New Federal Air Surgeon, 2021 SECAS Summit

Terrafugia tells ANN that it has reached a significant milestone by obtaining an FAA Special Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) airworthiness certificate for its Transition roadable aircraft. As a unique integration of a two-seat aircraft and an automobile, the Transition is designed to meet safety standards from both the FAA and the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The vehicle that received the certificate is legal for flight and represents the initial version of the Transition roadable aircraft. Terrafugia will produce and sell additional initial (flight-only) versions to interested parties and will evolve the driving portion of the Transition design, with the goal of being legal both in the sky and on local roads in 2022. Axiom Space has announced its crew for the first flight of a group of pr

Airborne-Unmanned 01.26.21: XRD Parachute System, Starliner Flight, Fruity Chute

Also: FAA BEYOND, Super Bowl LV, Drones v Locusts, Heli-Drone Collision

Aviation Safety Resources and Grug Group have completed a strategic development and supply agreement that will make ASR’s parachute recovery system standard equipment on Grug's SBX aircraft. “Whole-aircraft vehicle parachute recovery systems are essential to the projected market growth of eVTOL Urban Air Mobility,” said Larry Williams, ASR president and CEO. The SBX is a full electric aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. Powered by four tilting shrouded rotors, the SBX can also fly autonomously or piloted. NASA and Boeing are targeting no earlier than Thursday, March 25, for the launch of Starliner’s second uncrewed flight test as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program. Boeing’s Orbital Flight Test-2, or OFT-2, is a critical developmental milestone on the company&rs

Airborne-Flight Training 01.14.21: FSANA21 Is On!, FAA v CFIs, AeroSport Expands

Also: GA UK Restrictions, Educational UAS Protections, Duncan Aviation Interns, CAE USAF KC-135 Training

The flight school business is one of the few that seems both intent and surprisingly successful surviving even during a pandemic. As such, the community is readying a critically important get-together to takes notes and learn from each other as well as a great line-up of speakers and instructors in just a few more weeks. Flight school operators, chief flight instructors, and persons considering opening a flight school should take special note of the upcoming International Flight School Operators Conference. Attendees will have over 25 multi-track sessions to choose from during mornings and afternoons March 4-5. Citing inadequate training of a pilot whose plane crash resulted in 11 deaths, the NTSB has called on the FAA to better monitor the effectiveness of flight instructors. Three safety reco

Airflow To Develop Full-Scale Piloted Technology Demonstrator

Electric Short Takeof and Landing (eSTOL) Aircraft Underway

Airflow is in the process of developing one of the first full-scale piloted technology demonstrators of an eSTOL aircraft. For the last year, Airflow has been utilizing a sub-scale model for test flights that have helped develop eSTOL flight control technology. The next phase will transform a Cessna 210 into an eSTOL with Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP). DEP enables operations into and out of very short runways by providing more control at slower airspeeds. Airflow will validate and refine the design parameters used to build the production eSTOL aircraft.

FAA Continues To Evolve Guidance on B737 MAX Operations

Updates Flight Standardization Board Report and Master Minimum Equipment List

The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing updates to the Flight Standardization Board (FSB) report and Master Minimum Equipment List (MMEL) for the Boeing 737 MAX. The draft updates, which are subject to public comment, primarily reflect differences between the original 737 MAX and the new 737-8200 series airplane. Airlines use the FSB report to develop pilot training. The new 737-8200 can carry up to 200 passengers and is equipped with an additional exit door. The FAA has proposed additional training to account for design changes associated with these features.

Barnstorming: We Are Much Better Than This… Aren’t We?

"Stand Up For What You Believe In, Even If You Are Standing Alone." -- Sophie Scholl

News/Analysis/Commentary by Jim Campbell, ANN CEO Editor-In-Chief I’ve sat on this story for more than a few weeks, thinking it through, and realizing that what we experienced was (potentially) not that unusual and possibly a sign of the times. I hope I'm wrong about that. In an effort to build an even more credible news organization than we have, heretofore; last year Aero-News created a sister organization called AeroPReneuer. AeroPReneuer had a couple of purposes… The biggest of which was to take all communications and marketing tasks away from Aero-News so that, at no time, was anybody normally engaged in an editorial capacity, could transgress into commercial purposes. We wanted a solid li
