Airborne 10.03.22: CV-22 Rescued, Lilium eVTOL Transitions, ATP Increases

On 12 August 2022, a hard clutch engagement forced an AFSOC (U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command) CV-22 Osprey crew to make an emergency landing in a nature preserve on the Norwegian island of Senja.

Onsite repairs to the downed aircraft were deemed impossible, and Norwegian authorities—citing the delicacy of the Stongodden nature preserve’s bucolic terrain—balked at the notion of a conventional salvage operation. Lilium has announced that its Phoenix II eVTOL technology demonstrator aircraft achieved its first full transition from vertical, thrust-powered flight to horizontal, wing-borne, aerodynamic flight. This was accomplished during a 23 September test-flight. The company currently holds provisional sales agreements for 483 aircraft. The pilot shortage may see a small respite of sorts, as statisticians dig into FAA numbers to see that 9,087 freshly certificated commercial airline pilots have been minted in the last 12 months, besting 2019 numbers by nearly 2,500 pilots. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
