Airborne 08.31.15: CAP 'Total Force' Upgrade, NBAA v User Fees, Airshow Loss

Also: Buzz Aldrin Space Institute, Drone Spots Shark, Texting Accident, SECAF At BellHeli, B4UFLY App, NTSB MidAir Prelim, ERAU Drones

Last week ANN’s Jim Campbell was fortunate to be at the CAP National Conference when it was announced that General Mark A. Welsh announced the official recognition of the Civil Air Patrol as the fourth member of the Air Force Total Force team. The official recognition reflects CAP’s key and continuing contributions to the Air Force mission working with the Active, Guard and Reserve components to provide the Air Force with a full spectrum of distinct and complementary capabilities. The NBAA is calling on its members to contact members of Congress during this recess with a message that they should oppose any FAA reauthorization bill that calls for privatized air traffic control funded by user fees. In an email to ANN, NBAA’s Chris Strong wrote, "This

Aero-TV: Updating Your Attitude - BendixKing’s KI300 Solid State Electronic AI

Slowly But Surely, BendixKing Builds A Whole New Product Line

While at EAA AirVenture 2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, took some time to get an attitude check. He did this by stopping by the Bendix King display and talking with Justin Ryan, who is the president of BendixKing. The topic of their discussion was the new BendixKing KI 300 solid-state attitude indicator. Ryan explained that BendixKing has listened to its customers that wanted a better way to provide attitude reference for their BendixKing auto flight systems. The new KI 300 is designed to replace the mechanical gyro-driven KI 256 currently in use. Ryan points out that the KI 300 allows the aircraft owner to provide solid-state input to the autopilot and gain reliability over the vacuum driven instrument while saving the cost of going to a complete EFIS.

Aero-TV: "That's All Brother" -- Restoring a True Piece of Military History

History Comes Alive Thanks to A Magnificent CAF Effort

The story of the Douglas C-47 named, “That’s all Brother,” is fascinating from two points of view. First, it was the C 47 that that led the D-Day invasion in June 1944. Second, it still exists and has been found. The aircraft was on display at EAA AirVenture this year, and ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, met with Adam Smith, the Executive Vice President of strategic development for the Commemorative Air Force, to learn how they found it. Smith recounts the story of locating the aircraft and points out the irony that it was actually located in Oshkosh. This is truly a case of stumbling upon a historic airplane rather than actively seeking it out.

Blue Origin founder and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos plans a trip to Cape Canaveral in Florida on September 15 for what is being called a "significant announcement regarding the commercial launch industry." Bezos has reportedly been in negotiations with Space Florida that could lead to the establishment of a manufacturing facility for Blue Origin at Exploration Park south of the Kennedy Space Center's secure area on the Florida coast. The Massachusetts legislature is considering reinstating a 6.25 percent sales tax on airplane sales, parts, and maintenance that was abolished in 2002. Some in the current legislature are calling the tax break a "giveaway for wealthy executives with corporate jets." But the aviation industry counters that bringing back the t
