EAA Young Eagles Workshops Brings Aviation Discovery To Local Youth

EAA Chapters To Host Sessions As ‘Next Step’ After Young Eagles Flights

EAA chapters now have an additional “next step” activity following Young Eagles flights, as EAA is introducing a Young Eagles Workshops program available to all chapters as a follow-on way to engage young people. The Young Eagles Workshops program offers youth, generally 11 to 17 years old, the opportunity to discover more about aviation in a social setting at a local airport. These sessions, either single-day or multiple-day, are geared toward introducing kids to the basic elements of airplanes and aviation. “EAA continues to build its offerings for young people as ways to introduce and engage them in aviation, as there are so many possibilities for discovery and achievement through the world of flight,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programming, which includes the organization‘s youth initiatives.

Airborne 09.14.20: Mooney Hit By Truck!, One Aviation BK Saga, Pawnee Dunked

Also: Bombardier Safety Standdown, New CAE Financing Initiative, AMA And Others Urge FAA, EASA 737 MAX Tests

An unfortunate Mooney was forced to execute a deadstick landing on an Eastbound lane of Florida's Interstate 75, Wednesday morning. A twitter post by FHP summed up the scenario... "A small airplane made an emergency landing on EB I75 (?? Alley) @ 40 mm. Once landed, a pickup truck collided with the left wing of the plane. Thankfully no injuries. The EB right lane of I75 remains closed at this time." An engine failure downed the M20R Mooney over Broward County. The 2007 M20R Ovation 3 GX, N120GX, had two persons on board and executed a safe emergency landing on the right side of the road with no known damage as it came to a stop. Whew... right? All's well that ends well... until some idiot with a truck comes along... Facing tough economic conditions, some fairly unsavory foes, and the up-hil

AD: Glasflugel

AD 2020-19-12 Concerns Jamming Between The Double Two-Ring End Of The Towing Cable And The Deflector Angles Of The C.G. Release Mechanism

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-21-04 for Glasflugel Models Club Libelle 205, H 301 “Libelle,” H 301B “Libelle,” Kestrel, Mosquito, Standard “Libelle,” and Standard Libelle-201B gliders. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jamming between the double two-ring end of the towing cable and the deflector angles of the center of gravity (C.G.) release mechanism. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective October 22, 2020.
