Classic Aero-TV: The Stemme S-12 - Upgrading 1 of the 7 Wonders of Aero-Verse

The Stemme S12 Powered Glider Offers Cadillac Features and a Glide Ratio of 53 to 1…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, our ANN news crew visited with the Director of Flight Operations and Maintenance for Stemme USA. Wes Chumley gave us an inside view of their new motorglider, known as the Stemme S12. The aircraft’s appearance at AirVenture is the first time it has been shown in the USA. Motorgliders come in various sizes and shapes, but the Stemme is quite different from most of them. It’s unique in that the engine is mounted in the front of the aircraft and the propeller is retractable into a smooth fairing that provides a completely glider-like aerodynamic airframe.

Airborne 02.24.21: TWA 800 Decommissioning, Airlines v Privacy, MCI&A 'Flex'

Also: WAI Receives $250K, Inspiration4, Emergency AD: Bell 505, Elite Balloon Instructor

The National Transportation Safety Board has decided to decommission the TWA Flight 800 reconstruction as the agency prepares for the expiration of the lease for its Ashburn, Virginia, Training Center. The reconstruction, housed in the 30,000 square foot hangar along with other training tools at the NTSB’s Training Center, has been used in the NTSB’s accident investigation training courses for nearly 20 years. However, advances in investigative techniques such as 3-D scanning and drone imagery, lessen the relevance of the large-scale reconstruction in teaching modern investigative techniques. Airlines for America (A4A) has announced that its member passenger carriers have pledged support for the implementation of a so-called 'voluntary' international contact tracing program that is likely to disple

AD: Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes

AD 2021-01-05 Requires Modifying The Electrical Harness Installation

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. (Pilatus) Model PC-24 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI identifies the unsafe condition as electrical harness installations on PC-24 airplanes that are not in compliance with the approved design. This unsafe condition could lead to wire chafing and potential arcing or failure of wires having the incorrect length, possibly resulting in loss of system redundancy, or generation of smoke and smell, or loss of power plant fire protection function. This AD requires modifying the electrical harness installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective March 30, 2021.
