The 300th Bell 505 Jet Ranger X has been delivered to the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF). The first Bell 505 was delivered in 2017, and today there are 300 aircraft in operation across six continents, with customers logging more than 70,000 global fleet hours. Canadian Pilot’s Union, Unifor, has stated that they, 'will not tolerate interference in our democratic and pilot lead bargaining process with Cargojet by the self-serving US based Airline Pilots Association Intl. (ALPA) making ill-informed public statements.' "To have the president of ALPA preach from Virginia to our pilots on the bargaining committee about fatigue rules and safety is condescending, arrogant and disrespectful," said Jerry Dias in a written response to ALPA's public statement and posted letters to Unifor and Cargojet.

Airborne-Special Edition 04.30.21: SnF21--The Good, The Bad and The Un-Airworthy

Also: Great Planes, Great People, Great Crowds, and A Surprising Success

As many of you know, ANN’s Jim Campbell has been, in the past, a vocal critic of the old Sun and Fun Fly-In organization -- now called the Sun & Fun Aerospace Expo.  But his criticism has been surprisingly rare over the last few years -- the main reason being is that there's new leadership and a whole new cast of characters leading this event. More important though, there's a new mission for what WAS a major Fly-In and what has now become a movement that seeks to build a better future for Aviation... Starting with their Aerospace Center of Excellence. All expectations were that this year's Sun and Fun should have been an outright disaster... Coming on the heels of one of the worst years in recent US history, but Aviation is far more resilient than that, many of the companies sure are, and a pent-up demand,
