The Cessna Citation Longitude moves closer to its first flight as initial ground engine tests on its Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines have been completed. This paves the way for the prototype aircraft to take its first flight in the coming weeks. The engine tests verified the functionality of the engine start, fuel system and auto-throttle as well as interfaces with the avionics, electrical and hydraulic systems. Elon Musk has made good on his promise to memorialize the first recovery of a Falcon 9 booster by having the rocket placed on permanent display outside the company's California headquarters. The booster was placed upright outside the building over the weekend. The booster was recovered at Cape Canaveral on December 21, 2015, after deliveri

Aero-TV: Aeros Nanolight Trike - The Pack-n-go Ultralight

An Ultralight Trike That Fits In Your Car For Drive And Fly Fun…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, ANN’s Earl Downs traveled south to the ultralight area (The Fun Zone) on a mission to search out some real ultralights. One that caught his eye was named the Aeros Nonolight Trike. Earl talked with Alexander Voronin, the director of Aeros; the company is located in Ukraine. First up was the question about this good-looking little machine’s ability to meet the FAR 103 ultralight regulations. Voronin assured Earl that with an empty weight of 90 kilograms, it is easily within the FAR 103 empty weight requirements. We checked it out; 90 kilograms is just under 200 pounds.

Cheesy--Or Just Plain Dishonest? FlyQ Email Suggests ForeFlight Offer--But Isn't

Recent E-Mailing Suggests One Product... But Is Actually Something Else Altogether

ANN has made much of the fact that we, as a community, need to be able to depend on one another as we attempt to extract ourselves from several decades of bad times. While there are a number of ways in which we can support one another while still protecting our own turf (in terms of commercial interests), fibbing to our customers or potential customers just doesn't seem to be the way to do it. You only have to look over the past many years at the mess made by Revolution Helicopter, FlightPrep, Icon Aircraft, Cirrus Aircraft, and others to see that a little bit (or a lot) of fibbing can have a significant effect on one's rep, if not the bottom line... though a few of the major fibbers, like Cirrus, seem to have gotten away with such issues a lot better than others. But we digress... Imagine our mild surprise when a few folks sent several examples of an interesting email to us that seemed to be pushing a really big ForeFlight discount -- when in fact, it was pushing
