ANN FAQ: Here's How YOU Can Support The 'Let Bob Fly!' Documentary Project

Bob Has Asked ANN To Help Him Tell A Story That Could Transform The Fight For Airmen Rights... YOU Can Help!

Just a few days ago, ANN dropped the first hints (of many to come) of what has become an all-involving endeavor... to undertake an inspiring, exacting, professional, long-form documentary covering the tumultuous FAA v Bob Hoover debacle. 'Let Bob Fly!' is the working title for an aggressive and somewhat controversial new documentary. Some 20 years ago, one of the greatest living aviators was grounded by two FAA inspectors based on hearsay, innuendo and suspicious conjecture. The resulting fight cost Hoover three years of his life, untold amounts of money, and embarrassed the American aviation community to the core. At events like Lakeland, ICAS, Oshkosh, dozens of airshows all over the world, and the AOPA Conventions; people gathered, protested, made themselves heard and made it abundantly clear that the FAA had gone too far -- and that support for Hoover was pretty much an industry mandate.

Airborne 09.23.16: GA Pilot Sues SFO, Drone Legalities, EAA Hall Of Fame

The pilot of the last piston airplane based at San Francisco International Airport has sued the airport, claiming he is being pressured to move his Cessna 182 to a new home base. Courthouse News Service reports that Robert Reinheimer says in his suit that his flight privileges were illegally suspended by then-airport director John Martin for alleged safety violations. Those allegations were determined to be unfounded by the FAA. However, it’s reported that Reinheimer was not notified by the airport that the charges had been dismissed by the agency, and Martin did not respond to his request to have his privileges reinstated. Legal wrangling in a drone shootdown incident may set a national precedent. A judge is expected to determine which court should hear the case inv

Aero-TV: Pure Aerial Precision - The Snowbirds at AirVenture 2016

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds Can Best Be Described As ‘Elegant’…

EAA AirVenture 2016 was a great show and, in no small part, it was because of the participation of the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron from Canada - better known as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Their appearance at AirVenture was a special treat, and that’s what this video is all about. There’s something about their performances that seems to stand out as being more than a presentation of military prowess; it also seems to be a demonstration of elegance.
