The pilot of the last piston airplane based at San Francisco International Airport has sued the airport, claiming he is being pressured to move his Cessna 182 to a new home base. Courthouse News Service reports that Robert Reinheimer says in his suit that his flight privileges were illegally suspended by then-airport director John Martin for alleged safety violations. Those allegations were determined to be unfounded by the FAA. However, it’s reported that Reinheimer was not notified by the airport that the charges had been dismissed by the agency, and Martin did not respond to his request to have his privileges reinstated.

Formula 1 Race Pilot, Thom Richard, has an immensely powerful rabbit's foot - and whatever he wants for it, we'll pay it. During the Formula 1 Gold Race operations at the Reno Races this past weekend, Richard was lined up on the runway in a formation style take off with the aircraft in front of him and behind him. Engine problems occurred which resulted in his shutting down, and he signaled ground crews that he was unable to make the takeoff.
