Airborne 08.22.17: Privatization $$$, A Hangar for Doc, Wingsuit Jet

Also: Next X-37B Mission, Aero-Calendar, Ryanair, Citation X, Aurora, Commercial Spaceflight Federation, A&P Designation

ATC Privatization will be even costlier than thought... The Congressional Budget Office has released a revised scoring of the 21st Century AIRR Act (H.R. 2997), and the news is not good for supporters of the bill and its plan to separate ATC from the FAA. In the latest cost estimate released last week, the CBO says that the AIRR Act would increase the deficit by nearly $100 billion. That's $80 billion more than their previous estimate. According to the CBO, after taking into account lost tax revenue and new or increased taxes and fees, the net outcome is an increase in the deficit of $98.5 billion. A crowdfunding campaign is underway on Kickstarter to raise money towards the construction of a new hangar for Doc, the recently-restored B-29 that appeared at AirVenture last mon

From 2011: Living Life, Flying High, Cherishing Memories

I am amazed to be where I am... quite happy, incredibly fulfilled, living up to some great challenges, and very happily married... a concept that had I dared even consider it eight years ago, I'd not have believed it. Then again; I am an incredibly different man than I was back then... and the evolution that has taken place over nearly a decade has allowed me to transition from the gut-wrenching reality of losing a forever love to building a new life and even newer love that appreciates the gift of having been Vicki's husban
