Airborne 11.30.16: C Series Type Ratings, ATC Reform, Highest Air Show Grounded?

Also: EAA Warning, ABQ Balloon Fiesta, NTSB, El Al, Coast Guard, Alaska Airlines, Heli Move

The European Aviation Safety Agency and Transport Canada have awarded the CS100 and CS300 airliners with the same pilot Type Rating which provides operators with significant cost-saving opportunities. Bombardier’s Todd Young said in part, "The Same Type Rating is a reflection of the high commonality between the CS100 and CS300 aircraft. This is great news for customers that operate both aircraft as they will benefit from the cost-effective, minimal training required to transition pilots from one model to the other.” The Department of Transportation’s Office of the Inspector General recently released another critical report highlighting the uncertainty, delays, and reduced expectations in the FAA's NextGen air traffic control modernization program. The IG report also said th

Airborne 11.29.16: Aquila, Solar Impulse 2, Gone West: Tuskegee's Willie Rogers

Also: Drone Regs Scrapped, Aero-Calendar, EAA Board, ATC Privatization, Alaska/Virgin, U.K. Airports, ICAO Council

The NTSB has recently released documents related to the structural failure of the Aquila drone being tested by Facebook as a way to deliver Internet service to remote areas. Bloomberg reports that the documents allude to a "structural failure" of the Aquila aircraft, which has a wingspan wider than a Boeing 737. It’s reported the accident occurred while the aircraft was on approach to landing following the test flight June 28. According to a report in the Dayton Daily News, officials involved with the epic solar powered around the world flight completed earlier this year are looking for a final location to place the Solar Impulse-Two aircraft on display. According to the article, the National Aviation Heritage Alliance, referred to as the ‘NAHA,’ was

Airborne 11.28.16: Crete To Cape, 1st Flt: Airbus A350-1000, Support AMA!

Also: RAF Private Airfield, Savage Bobber, SpaceX Targeted, Gulfstream ADS-B, EAA Chapter, TransAsia Airways, RAF Grob

The Vintage Air Rally Crete-2-Cape is a biplane rally that started from Sitia, Crete on the 12th of November and was expected to end up in Cape Town after 5 weeks -- but the original plan has gone a bit astray. For reasons that are yet to be fully explained, the Ethiopians halted the specialized air rally, claiming that the participants had crossed into the country illegally. After some negotiations, the Ethiopians relented and the rally has continued. The event is described by the organizers as a flying rally across Africa, from Crete to Cape Town for aircraft built before the 31st December 1939. It was formatted to follow in the footsteps of the pioneering flights that took place in the 1920s. Another milestone has been reached in the A350 program as the first A3
