Col. Kevin Walsh released a video announcing the resumption of operations.

Piper has selected the Continental Motors CD-170 compression ignition engine fueled with Jet-A to power the next generation of the Piper PA-44 Seminole. After selecting the CD-155 Jet-A engine to power the Archer DX, Piper Aircraft extends its Jet-A powered range of trainer aircraft with the PA-44. By transitioning to Jet-A burning engines, the Seminole DX addresses the requirements expressed by many customers across the world, especially in the many regions where Avgas availability and cost is a concern.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.23.18): Precipitation Radar Weather Descriptions

Precipitation Radar Weather Descriptions Existing radar systems cannot detect turbulence. However, there is a direct correlation between the degree of turbulence and other weather features associated with thunderstorms and the weather radar precipitation intensity. Controllers will issue (where capable) precipitation intensity as observed by radar when using weather and radar processor (WARP) or NAS ground based digital radars with weather capabilities. When precipitation intensity information is not available, the intensity will be described as UNKNOWN. When intensity levels can be determined, they shall be described as: a. LIGHT (< 30 dBZ) b. MODERATE (30 to 40 dBZ) c. HEAVY (> 40 to 50 dBZ) d. EXTREME (> 50 dBZ)

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (04.23.18)

“More general-aviation pilots and passengers die from accidents involving loss of control in flight than any other single factor. Our goal is for these experts to discuss solutions available to prevent loss of control and to identify the path forward in our continued joint effort to improve safety.” Source: NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt will moderate the participant-driven discussion on preventing in-flight loss of control in general aviation. The purpose of the event is to facilitate a discussion about possible solutions to prevent loss of control, which has played a role in more than 40 percent of all single-engine, fixed-wing general aviation fatal accidents.

"For those reasons, a key measure of success is not, 'Did we provide the most flights possible?' but 'Did we provide the most comfortable flights possible?'—for instance, by avoiding stressful layovers and preventing long drives to and from the airport. Our mission is to provide hope to these families, and how we deliver that hope matters." Source: Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown, noting that the nation's leading medical flight provider, Miracle Flights, concluded March with 640 free flights provided to families of children battling rare and life-threatening illnesses, according to the Las Vegas–based charity.
