ANN's Daily Aero-Term (07.11.20): Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI)

Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) An airport lighting facility, similar to VASI, providing vertical approach slope guidance to aircraft during approach to landing. PAPIs consist of a single row of either two or four lights, normally installed on the left side of the runway, and have an effective visual range of about 5 miles during the day and up to 20 miles at night. PAPIs radiate a directional pattern of high intensity red and white focused light beams which indicate that the pilot is “on path” if the pilot sees an equal number of white lights and red lights, with white to the left of the red; “above path” if the pilot sees more white than red lights; and “below path” if the pilot sees more red than white lights.

ANN FAQ: How To Get YOUR News Out On Aero-News

Good News, Bad News... It's ALL News

As the preeminent online aviation news resource out there, the editorial staff at Aero-News sees a large number of news releases. We look at all of them, and can usually tell whether something merits publishing consideration within reading the first couple of paragraphs. Often, however, a new and innovative product can be overlooked because of the very words written to promote it, by the very people who created it.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (07.11.20)

"The Triple Tree Aerodrome and our Board of Directors have been closely monitoring the developing COVID-19 global pandemic. The number of cases has continually increased, and our great State of South Carolina is no exception. When you attend any of our events, you become part of our family. Families take care of each other and their well-being. In the interest of safety for our family, it brings me great sadness to announce that we will be canceling our Fall 2020 series of events, the Triple Tree Fly-In, Nall in the Fall, and the Heli Extravaganza. We look forward to the day when we can greet you at the iconic gates of The Triple Tree Aerodrome or look for you on short final to Runway 3/21. Until then, stay safe and look out for each other." Source: From the Admin folks that run the Triple Tree Aerodrome, confirming the impact of COVID-19 on a number of scheduled events and the cancellations that have resulted.

Bristell B8 High-Wing Prototype Makes First Flight

Forty Minute First Flight Goes Well, Test Program Underway

Earlier this year, a few players in the LSA/Affordable Flyer segment made announcements that their mostly low-wing configured airframes were soon to be joined by a high-wing version -- which got a lot of attention from those who love that configuration... and first to the skies is the curvy Bristell B8. BRM's Martin Bristela reported that... "Today BRM Aero has made (the) next step in its history. On 9th July 2020 at 13zulu company test pilot Mirek Rakusan made the first flight with the B8 all metal high wing."

Airborne 07.10.20: Mother Of ALL Cubs, Airshows!, Bristell B8 High-Wing

Also: Summering... On Mars, Hartzell Engine Tech, 2020 FAI General Conference, Gogo Inflight

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for the backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. Our friends at the International Council of AirShows have pointed out a bright spot for the wh

NTSB Concludes News-Copter Collided With Small Drone

No Evidence Of The Drone Itself... But If The Shoe Fits...

After an extensive investigation, a proper one we might add, it now appears that there has been one more documented midair between a civil manned aircraft and unmanned drone, albeit (apparently) a small hobby drone. The helicopter was operating under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91 as an electronic news gathering flight, under visual flight rules, within Class G airspace. The pilot heard a noise which he first thought might be a bird strike, and made a precautionary landing. Post flight examination led the pilot and operator to believe they collided with a drone. A search by ground and electronic methods did not locate a drone.
