The Airplane Factory USA Accepts 1st ANN SportPlane Torture Test Challenge

Sidestepping the Hype and Baloney Inherent In SO Much Aviation Communication, TAF Is Going To Let Us REALLY Evaluate the Sling TSi

It’s not lost on many that it has become more and more difficult to evaluate the true capabilities and attributes of today’s aircraft. In an industry that is accompanied by more hyperbole than can be carried by a C-5A, it is incredibly difficult to separate reality from pipedream. But then again… REAL numbers don’t lie. REAL measurements don’t lie. REAL video is compelling when accompanied by hard, CRITICAL analysis of real data… and may allow today’s potential aircraft buyer to determine what an aircraft can really do… and what it might really do for them. Without the BS. So… ponder this. When an allegedly outstanding new airplane enters the market, confounds the skeptics, and demonstrates excellent capabilities, it still has to fight its way through a miasma of baloney uttered by hopeful competitors… UNLESS that machine is willing to end

Spacefest X 2019... You Had To Be There

One Of The Ultimate Events For Unrepentant Space Buffs ...

By Wes Oleszewski, ANN Spaceflight Analyst From August 8 through August 11, 2019 space buffs from all over the planet converged on Tucson, Arizona for the tenth volume of the gathering know as "Spacefest." Presented by the folks at Novaspace, Spacefest draws crowds of spaceflight fans as well as astronauts, mission controllers, authors, speakers, artists and space stuff vendors to the beautiful Marriot Starr Pass Resort in the desert hills five miles west of Tucson. For anyone who has an interest in space, attending Spacefest is the experience of a lifetime. I first attended Spacefest in 2016 intending to sell some of my spaceflight books and to make some handy cash. What I discovered, however, is that the event is far more than that. The first day, as I was on my way to the ballroom to set up my table, I walked in and came nearly face to face with Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise. As casually as can be we started talking about his flying the M2-F1. That is the

Pitts Pilot Radioed Of Aircraft Problems Before New Orleans Accident

Witnesses Suggest The Aircraft Was Having Engine Trouble

In the days following a highly visible and tragic aircraft accident that took the lives of a well-known aerobatic pilot and a highly respected local reporter, a few reported details indicate that former airshow Pilot Franklin Augustus knew that his Pitts S-2B was in trouble. An NTSB senior air safety investigator from Denver arrived at the accident site Saturday to begin the on-scene phase of the investigation. At about 3:06 p.m. CDT, Aug. 16, an Aerotek Pitts S-2B (registration N600DF) crashed shortly after taking off from New Orleans’ Lakefront Airport. Both occupants, the commercial-rated pilot and the passenger, were fatally injured. Shortly after take-off, the pilot radioed the controller in the Lakefront Airport tower and indicated that he was having problems, which were not specified. The controller gave the pilot a clearance to return to the airport.
