Airborne 08.25.16: Airlander 10 Accident, M500 EASA Cert, Flying Car Frenzy

Also: Veterans Against Airshows, Redbird Migration 2016, Rocket Debris, Charles Taylor Award, Wayward Satellite, Norfolk International, Hawaiian Airlines

It was only last week that we reported about the first flight of the Airlander-10 Hybrid Air Vehicle. Now, we’re sorry to say that we must report that the supersized airship suffered a mishap on its second test flight. In a statement posted on its website, Hybrid Air Vehicles said that the aircraft undertook its second test flight on Wednesday and flew for 100 minutes, completing all the planned tasks before returning to Cardington to land. According to the statement from the company, the Airlander experienced a heavy, nose first, landing and the front of the flight deck has sustained some damage which is currently being assessed. Both pilots and the ground crew are reported to be safe and well, and the aircraft is secured a

Oshkosh 2016: The Highs, The Lows, The Heroes and The Bozos…

A Look Back At The Aero-Equivalent Of Burning Man, Woodstock, And An Old Fashioned Tent Revival—All Rolled Into One Week in Wisconsin

With Oshkosh all of a few weeks in the rear-view mirror, we come to a time when we TRY to evaluate what happened this year… in both positive and negative terms.  We’ve tried a few variants on this report in the past… and some of them have worked better than others, but we’re going to try to present a group of shorter segments, as we move through a few general categories (Heroes, Regrets, Coolest Players, Coolest Moments, Bozos, Planes, Gadgets, Fan Favorites, etc…) so that we can try to make a proper report of the many high and low-points of AirVenture 2016… If any of you have anything to add, please do so, we’ll be revisiting this topic via a half dozen or more categories over the next month and we’d love to have YOUR viewpoints added to the mix. But for now… Here are our selections for Oshkosh Heroes 2016...

Airborne 08.24.16: Northrop Grumman T-X, Refurbished F-14A, Helo Cash Drop

Also: Mini-Drone, Avilution, Narita Tower, US/Mexico Av-Agreement, UK Helipads Too Small, FAA Employee Busted, Proba-3

If it was a secret, it isn’t now, as a few images of Northrop Grumman's offering to replace the Air Force’s T-38 supersonic jet trainer have appeared on the Internet as the plane conducted high-speed taxi tests last week at Mojave Airport in California. The aircraft was built by Scaled Composites under contract with Northrop Grumman. FAA records indicate it is powered by a single F404-GE-102D engine, also known as the Model 400. The High Sky Wing of the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, Texas plans to unveil a refurbished Grumman F-14A Tomcat at its CAF Airsho this weekend. The airframe is notable as being the first F-14A to shoot down another aircraft in combat. On August 19, 1981, Commander Henry Kleemann and Lieutenant David Venlet of VF-41 flew th

Airborne 08.23.16: Santa Monica Fights On, ISS Readies, ICAO Flight Plans

Also: ANN Is Hiring!, Aero-Calendar, UAV v Helo, AIA Briefs Clinton, First LM-100J, Teamsters, Smalltrack

A resolution has been considered by the Santa Monica City Council would make it a policy of the city to close the airport to aviation uses "as soon as legally permitted", with a goal of ending aviation operations there by 2018. The resolution is a complex document that reviews the past history of the airport and the original purpose of the land upon which the airport resides. It refers to an original commitment to the FAA to maintain the airport in operation for 30 years as a result of federal money infused into the airport. According to the City Council math, that commitment to support the airport ends in 2018. Last Friday, space station Expedition 48 Commander, Jeff Williams, and, Flight Engineer Kate Rubins, concluded their 6-hour spacewalk to install the first of two intern

Airborne 08.22.16: Small Drone Rule, Lightspeed Tango, Paper Chart Prices

Also: CommutAir, Norseman Takeoff, Asteroid Sample, A-4 Accident, RS-25 Test, ANA's 50th 787, Banyan Repair Station

We have been covering the news about FAR 107, which addresses non-recreational UAS operations, since the regulations became final in June. Now, the FAA is reminding everyone that the regulation actually takes effect on August 29. An important reminder is that under the new rule, the person actually flying a drone must have a remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating, or be directly supervised by someone with such a certificate. Now the task of scrambling for a charged battery has been eliminated as Lightspeed Aviation has made an enhancement to the LEMO version of its Tango headset. The new feature enables the panel interface unit of the headset to charge a spare battery from ship's power, providing a ready replacement should the battery in the headset itself b
