Classic Aero-TV At OSH21: ScaleBirds Warbird Replica Kits, A Closer Look

From Oshkosh 2021: Sam Watrous Speaks With ANN At Oshkosh

Twenty-five years ago at Sun ‘N Fun, Sam Watrous was sitting with his good buddy and wondering what it would be like to have war replicas as a finished kit. The idea never went anywhere until his son’s senior project at Rhode Island School of Design. “He had to come up with a product, company, marketing research, and pitch to professors,” Watrous says. “He said, ‘Hey dad, how about this ScaleBirds design’ so he came up with everything. Once his professors got the pitch they said he had to finish the concept. It’s been six years in design and development but we are about ready. We are going to be flying in a month, month and a half.”

FAA Reconfigures Boston Airspace to Minimize Noise Impact

First Change Moves Aircraft Departing On Runway 15-Right Further North

Under the usual heavy pressure form folks who have chosen to live too close to airports, the Federal Aviation Administration has implemented air traffic procedure changes for Boston Logan International Airport that will reduce the impact from aircraft overflight noise. The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) and the Massport Community Advisory Committee (MCAC) reportedly requested the procedures. The first change moves aircraft departing on Runway 15-Right further north away from densely populated areas near Hull, Mass. Pilots can use the procedure seven days a week during both day and night hours. This procedure has already been implemented.

Airborne-Flight Training 11.18.21: Bell School, New PC-7 MKX, Republic Airways

Also: WAI $1M Grant, Navy's Advanced Helicopter Training System, ERAU Research, MD Helicopters Scholarship

Bell Training Academy has announced good news for former military service members, now that the Veterans Affairs office has approved the school for pilot training reimbursement. As part of the VA's Education and Training assistance, veterans who meet qualifications to receive GI Bill education reimbursement can apply to have all or a portion of their flight training compensated. Renewing the competition between the Embraer Super Tucano and the Beechcraft T-6 Texan, the Swiss have decided to enter the fray with an advanced, tandem-seat, turbine-powered "smart basic trainer". The PC-7 MKX is reportedly suitable to replace even lighter piston aircraft for elementary training, and emphasizes the docility of its cost-efficient PT6A-25C engine, with 700 horsepower. Republic Airways will seek to make its own technicians, partnering with aviation ma

Airborne 11.29.21: BasicMed Expands, Pentagon Seeks UFOs, Tecnam P2010TDI

Also: Airbus A340 in Antarctica, Red Arrows Gain Newbies, Army Wants More Chinooks, RCAF Honors Heli Pilot

The FAA is proposing to fix a technicality in the Federal Aviation Regulations that prevents pilots flying under BasicMed from operating, in most cases, as safety pilots under simulated instrument conditions. The fix is included in a recently released notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that requires commercial balloon pilots to hold second-class medicals, to fulfill a Congressional mandate implemented after a high-profile accident several years ago. When the FAA created BasicMed in 2017, it directly copied the law passed by Congress that required the agency to do so. After a somewhat disappointing revelation of UFO activity in the summer of 2021, with some unusual footage and a few shrugs from the relevant authorities. After much buildup about answers, truth, and strange happenings, the end result was a bit underwhelming for those who

NTSB Prelim: Zenith STOL CH701

The Airplane Was Wobbling, And It Then Began To Bank Left...

On November 12, 2021, about 1414 Pacific standard time, an experimental amateur-built Zenith CH-701, N984LD, was destroyed when it was involved in accident while landing at a back-country airstrip, near Randsburg, California. The pilot and pilot-rated passenger were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. The airport was located within a 1,500 ft-wide valley, at an elevation of about 2,450 ft. The runway was oriented on a southwest heading, with rising terrain to the north, and a parallel ridgeline to the south which fell away to an open desert playa.

AD: De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited

AD 2021-23-02 Prompted By Reports Of Loss Of Hydraulic Fluid And Annunciation Of The Check Fire Detect Light

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited Model DHC-8-401 and -402 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of loss of hydraulic fluid and annunciation of the check fire detect light. This AD requires doing a detailed visual inspection for chafing and proper clearance of the left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) main landing gear (MLG) primary zone advanced pneumatic detector (APD) sensing lines, the hydraulic tube assemblies, and the surrounding structure, and doing all applicable corrective action. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective January 5, 2022.

AD: Airbus SAS Airplanes

AD 2021-22-25 Requires Revising The Operator's Existing FAA-Approved Minimum Equipment List (MEL)

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-200, -200 Freighter, -300, and -900 series airplanes; and Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that during the frame of flight test clearance process, a detailed analysis of air data reference (ADR) failure scenarios led to the identification that compliance requirements for loads and handling qualities throughout the flight envelope could be impaired in case of dispatch with one ADR inoperative (master minimum equipment list (MMEL) item 34-10-01) during the maximum interval allowed by the current MMEL. This AD requires revising the operator's existing FAA-approved minimum equipment list (MEL) for the air data/inertial reference system, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these product
