Fisher Flying Products Is Alive and Well--Introducing New 'Aria'

Aircraft Is An All Wood Design With Composite Cowl And Bubble Canopy

Its been a long time since we had a chance to fly any of the aircraft that originally sprang forth from the mind of our old friend Mike Fisher... and so we were pleased to note that the company is still alive and well -- and apparently in good hands. The Fisher breed were mostly an all wood, inexpensive to buy and easy to build, and over a dozen designs are still being offered by the company, currently based in Canada, under the direction of Dave Hertner... who seems wholly invested in making sure that FFP remains a force to be reckoned with.

Special agents with the FBI this week arrested a Hollywood man on a federal charge alleging that he recklessly operated a drone that crashed into a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter. 22-year-old Andrew Rene Hernandez,was arrested pursuant to a criminal complaint that charges him with one count of unsafe operation of an unmanned aircraft. Using data from the remains of the drone that hit an LAPD helicopter last September and other evidence, the Feds believe they have found the operator of the rogue aircraft. The drone damaged the LAPD aircraft and the pilot was forced to initiate an emergency landing. At last week's fall meeting – held in a virtual format – the EAA board of directors supported the ongoing planning efforts for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021, which will be held July

In March 2020, Aero Locarno (Switzerland) signed an order for 5 Sonaca 200 Trainer Pros. The Approved-Training Organisation has just decided to double the initial order bringing the revised order to a total of 10 aircraft. “Even though we are going through a difficult time in aviation, we are seeing a steady demand for training which justifies the investment in a brand new fleet. We feel the need to harmonize our aircraft fleet by acquiring additional Sonaca 200 Trainer Pros. The Sonaca 200s will replace our old Cessnas. It goes without saying that glass cockpit and state-of-the-art aircraft will further spark interest in our school," Stefano Buratti, Aero Locarno CEO. Proudly wearing their newly-pinned wings, a group of pilot cadets have become the first to graduate from Airbus’ Ab-Initi

ANN Wishes Our Readers, Listeners And Viewers A VERY Happy Thanksgiving Holiday

Yes... We Will Be On A Holiday Schedule For The Rest Of Week

As the Aero-News staff observes the US holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday, we wanted to let our readers know that ANN will still be on the job, reporting breaking news in the aviation and aerospace fields as it happens -- in Real Time -- just like always. Aero-News will be publishing at a slightly reduced level on November 26th and 27th, as our staffers spend some time with their families... some of whom may not recognize them away from their computers. Basically, we're going to treat the four-day weekend as just that: a four-day weekend, meaning you'll still be able to find several new stories each day on our website.

EAA Joins Aviation Groups in Addressing Court Regarding Warbird Case

EAA And The Other Amici Are Concerned About A Broadly Worded Ruling By The Court

EAA has joined with NAFI, ICAS, the North American Trainers Association, GAMA, and AOPA in filing an amicus curiae ("friend of the court") brief in the case of Warbird Adventures, Inc., et al v FAA. The case is challenging a cease and desist order issued to Warbird Adventures by FAA in which the FAA alleges that the company is operating a Limited Category aircraft for compensated flight training without a required exemption. The Limited category was established shortly after World War II to accommodate surplus military aircraft that otherwise did not have a type certificate. While Limited airworthiness certificates are no longer issued, many warbirds flying today still operate in the category.

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 4

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-n-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy) ANN E-I-C Note: Yeah… I ‘ve been slower than molasses on a winter’s day getting these out to you… but due to recent MAJOR upgrades and announcements (like the MASSIVE Roku and FireTV programs), there’s been precious little time to get all things done, that NEED to be done. However, here is Part 4... while Part Five (also complete) will follow in a few days and... Part Six should conclude this whole MASSIVE saga in a week or two… I hope. Once we were all ensconced in the Pipistrel Panthera, we proceeded with an altogether conventional fuel injected engine start, and completed a checklist dictated to me by Andy Chen, courtesy of ForeFflight. Apparently; this particular EFIS set up was not equipped with an MFD accessible checklist, which was not a problem since Andy is a big believer in u
