Airborne 06.08.18: Final Reauthorization Push, ISS Return, SpaceX Parafoils

Also: Frontier Pilots Caution, Airbus Is Hiring, Afghan Air Force, EAA & Balloon Federation Of America

GAMA and the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) joined together to call on U.S. Senate leadership to consider a bill authorizing programs of the FAA as soon as possible. Congress has not enacted a multiyear authorization bill for the FAA since 2012, and that bill expired almost three years ago.

Since September 2015, the agency has been working under a series of short-term extensions, including the current measure expiring on September 30, 2018. Three members of the International Space Station Expedition 55 crew, including NASA astronaut Scott Tingle, returned to Earth Sunday after 168 days of living and working in low-Earth orbit. Tingle, astronaut Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, and cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos landed at 8:39 a.m. EDT southeast of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan. This mission was the first for Tingle and Kanai, and Shkaplerov now has logged 532 days in space on three flights. The crew completed hundreds of experiments, including materials testing, a study of the effect of microgravity on the bone marrow and research into plant growth in space. SpaceX has released high-quality photos of the recovery of the payload fairings that protected the Iridium-6/GRACE-FO satellite during launch on May 22. Via Twitter, SpaceX said that "Falcon 9 fairing halves deployed their parafoils and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean last week after the launch of Iridium-6/GRACE-FO. Closest half was about 50 meters from SpaceX’s recovery ship, Mr. Steven." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
