USAF Hurricane Hunters Track Sally

Members Of The 53rd WRS Made Multiple Flights Into Hurricane Sally

The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron “Hurricane Hunters,” flew nine missions into Hurricane Sally to track the storm and gather data. The 53rd WRS, an Air Force Reserve unit assigned to the 403rd Wing, started flying missions into then-Tropical Storm Sally from their home station, Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi, Sept. 11, said Maj. Grant Wagner, a 53rd WRS navigator and mission commander. As the storm headed toward the coast of Mississippi, the 403rd Wing evacuated their planes to another base and relocated three WC-130J Super Hercules aircraft to Ellington Airport, Texas to continue flying missions into Sally.

Airborne 09.18.20: Diamond DA20-C1 Returns, Brutal GAMA Report, USMC $$$$

Also: SmartSky Sues, Tecnam P2012 SENTINEL SMP, Delta Pilot Jobs At Risk, Sterling Adds Archers

One of our favorite training birds is back... and upgraded, to boot! The high demand for single engine training aircraft has led to the return to production of the Diamond DA20-C1, powered by a 125HP Continental IO-240 engine and equipped with new state-of-the-art G500TXi Avionics. With over 1,000 DA20’s already operating worldwide, the strong desire for lower cost new single engine aircraft in training environments continues. The DA20 is proven to be the safest and most efficient aircraft for primary training, and fleet operators are raving about its return to production. This one had to hurt... GAMA released its report of general aviation aircraft shipments and billings through the second quarter of 2020 (June 30), and in view of the pandemic and economic downturn, no one was expecting hearts an

Airborne-Flight Training 09.10.20: Navy/NASA T-38s, Vincennes U, King Schools

Also: I/ITSEC 2020 Goes Virtual, Chad Weaver Av Scholarship, Airbus H145/135 Sim, S Utah Univ Adds Bell 505

The United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) is the Navy's principal operator of the Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon supersonic jet trainer, with 10 of the twin-engined aircraft in its inventory. The school's T-38s fly an average of 1,100 hours per year, providing students with valuable experience evaluating its performance, flying qualities, dynamics, and transonic and supersonic flight characteristics. Because the T-38C is the school's primary fixed-wing trainer, students are required to receive formal flight training in the aircraft prior to their arrival. In the past, this has been done at the U.S. Air Force's Air Education and Training Command at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, AETC had to pare back its training commitments to the Navy and its o

Embry-Riddle Busts/Suspends Students for 'High-Risk Behavior'

One Of America's Leading Aviation Learning Centers Is Serious About COVID-19 Prevention

ERAU, a leading aviation university, has busted some students for unsafe behavior. What kind of behavior? Low-flying? FAR Violations? Nope... COVID-19 related 'unsafe behaviors.' The University is being pretty forceful with their concerns and decisions... "We are dealing with a virus that has claimed 947,266 lives worldwide and 197,763 in the United States, as of Sept. 18. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been challenged by students, faculty, staff and parents as well as our broader communities to do the right thing and provide the safest possible environment for everyone to continue with face-to-face instruction..."

The $15M HCare Support Contract Covers NASA’s H135 Fleet

NASA has signed a $15 million HCare Infinite full-availability support solution with Airbus Helicopters.

SmartSky Beats Gogo's Patent Challenge

Yet Another Legal Skirmish For SmartSky...

SmartSky Networks reports (and the docs confirm) that it has defeated industry incumbent Gogo's challenge brought before the US Patent & Trademark Office ('USPTO') nearly six months ago, proving SmartSky's position that its '947 patent, which covers some of the most essential features of a 5G air-to-ground ('ATG') network, like beamforming and seamless cell tower handoffs, was and shall remain valid. "Gogo has been proven unequivocally wrong in its challenge. We continue to believe they will have great difficulty commercializing their future 5G network without infringing on SmartSky's expansive intellectual property portfolio," said SmartSky Chairman and CEO Haynes Griffin.

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
