Aero-News: Quote of the Day (06.26.22)

“Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, some U.S. airlines had begun to misuse U.S. visa programs—particularly E-3 and H-1B ‘specialty occupation’ visas—to avoid market pressures and artificially maintain pilot pay rates and work rules insufficient to attract qualified U.S. pilots. Though this activity slowed during the first part of the pandemic, we now have evidence of Spirit Airlines management scheduling recruiting sessions in cities in Australia in July,” . Source: From a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas from Capt. Joe DePete, president of the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), and Capt. Ryan Muller, chair of ALPA’s Spirit Airlines pilot group.

9th Circuit Court Ruling Imperils Airline Industry

My God, It’s Full of …

A legal storm is brewing in California—a state that has doggedly pursued and deservedly earned a reputation for breathtaking short-sightedness. High taxes, endless regulations, massive litigation, rising crime, increasing homelessness, and a political prioritization of social and environmental policies over practical business solutions have precipitated an exodus of small and large companies from the Golden State. California’s latest target is the airline industry. The state seeks to require its onerous employee meal-and-rest-break laws to apply to all California flight attendants—even if their routes are entirely outside of California.

Airborne 06.24.22: Helicopter SAF, Evergreen 747 4 $ale, Federal Air Marshals

Also: Lunar Fission Reactor, Hawker Hunter Incident, HAV Airlander Airships, Honda and FlightSafety

An Airbus H225 has performed the word’s first helicopter flight powered by 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The flight, which saw both the H225’s Safran Makila 2 engines powered by SAF, follows a November 2021 undertaking in which an H225 flew with one of its Makila 2 engines operating on SAF and the other on conventional jet fuel. The flights are part of an ongoing campaign to understand the impact of SAF use on aircraft gas-turbine systems. McMinnville, Oregon—famed UFO hotbed and Spruce Goose roost—will host a unique foreclosure auction. The property in question is neither a house, nor an automobile, nor even a collection of Richard Nixon campaign buttons; rather it’s a derelict Boeing 747 that’s been parked in front of the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum for eight years.
