Airborne 04.18.14: SpaceX's Historic Pad, Sikorsky Going Presidential?, EAA B17

NASA signed an agreement with Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) for use and occupancy of the complex. It will serve as a platform for SpaceX to support their commercial launch activities. It looks like the president will be flying in a new, made in America, Sikorsky helicopter. That's because it appears Sikorsky is the only manufacturer still in the running. Both Boeing and a team consisting of AgustaWestland and Northrop Grumman have dropped out of the bidding process. This is a reunion that nobody will forget, and EAA's B-17G, Aluminum Overcast, was at the heart of the gathering.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.20.14): Ground Stop

Ground Stop Ground Stops are implemented for a number of reasons. The most common reasons are: To control air traffic volume to airports when the projected traffic demand is expected to exceed the airport's acceptance rate for a short period of time. To temporarily stop traffic allowing for the implementation of a longer-term solution, such as a Ground Delay Program. The affected airport's acceptance rate has been reduced to zero.
