Airborne 04.25.17: Vietnam Helicopter Museum, Gleim Virtual Cockpit, Av Police

Also: Airport Fight, Aero-Calendar, H145, A321neo, Emirates, Airspace Workshops, Jeppesen

A claim of discrimination has been filed against Contra Costa County, CA by the Vietnam Helicopter Museum, which alleges that the county has discriminated by repeatedly blocking attempts to lease a hangar at Buchanan Field. Pacific States Aviation, the Conco Companies, and the museum, first attempted to rent a 39,000 square-foot hangar in December. The museum ranked third in the process. They filed an informal complaint with the FAA in January when the county refused a 2015 request by the former hangar tenant to transfer ownership of the hangar and assign the lease to the museum. Gleim Aviation has released the Gleim Virtual Cockpit. The all-in-one simulator platform, when used in conjunction with the Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course, offers a home simulator platform with a f

Airborne 04.24.17: Continental Responds, Textron Update, ISS Plus 2

Also: Planes Of Fame Update, Precious Metal, U-2 Accident, AA FAs, USAF X-37B, O'Hare Fly Quiet, UAL NonResponse

Continental has provided ANN with an explanation of its recently-released MSB05-8B. They and the FAA are working as fast as possible to make sure that, while ensuring the highest levels of safety, owners and operators of aircraft equipped with Continental engines will not be burdened with unnecessary costs. Continental Motors is working diligently with the FAA to make significant amendments to MSB05-8B and they expect this to happen in the next 15 days. Slow deliveries of King Air airplanes has pushed Textron revenues and profits lower in the first quarter of 2017.  Revenues at Textron Aviation were down $121 million, primarily due to lower military and commercial turboprop volumes, according to a company news release. Textron Aviation delivered 35 new Citation jets, up from 34 jet

RFP: ANN Considering Future Options For HQ Relocation

Some Aggressive Upgrades For ANN, Aero-TV, and Airborne May Require New Digs

It's been in development for years, but we're getting to a point where we think we can pull off something TRULY REMARKABLE -which will require us to make BIG CHANGES. So... ANN may be looking for a new home... hopefully, a permanent one. We are mulling over THE most significant upgrades we've ever undertaken and realizing that we may need to make significant operational modifications to accomodate them. As a result, we're currently inviting proposals for a potential NEW airport/office facility to serve as home base and studio for the Aero-News Network, Inc., the Aviation World's Real-Time News and Information Service, and our Daily Airborne Unlimited programming, our new 'Aero-Doc' documentary division, as well as other Aero-TV/Aero-Verse  productions. The successful bid will require an airport friendly community and a (preferably) airport based location where we can locate both an office, and a video production studio, as well as a han

Gulfstream’s super mid-size G280 recently completed two missions en route to and from the 2017 Avalon Airshow, each achieving another city-pair world speed record. The G280 flew from Singapore to Melbourne, Australia, a distance of 3,332 nautical miles, in 7 hours and 21 minutes at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.81. The following week, it again departed Singapore, this time bound for Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport, completing the 3,177-nm flight in 7 hours and 18 minutes at a speed of Mach 0.82. The G280 already holds the city-pair record for flying from Melbourne to Singapore.
