Airborne 12.05.18: Bogus A/C Renewals, Piaggio Struggles, Illegal Charters

Also: Waypoint Leasing CH11, K-MAX Aircraft Orders, Bogus Sightseeing Flts, Aero-TV: Innovation By Avilution

EAA is warning its members to regard any solicitation they may receive regarding aircraft registration renewal that does not come directly from the FAA with a healthy dose of suspicion. E

AA is aware of several businesses — with names, web URLs, and logos that may appear reminiscent of a government agency — that notify aircraft owners of impending registration expiration and direct them to a website or mail-in form where they can renew in exchange for a hefty fee. Adding little or no actual value to the transaction, these businesses essentially duplicate the same process that the FAA directly administers for a mere $5. Piaggio Aerospace has requested that the Italian government place the company in receivership due to "the state of insolvency of the company." Piaggio has released a statement saying "The prolonged uncertainty and present market conditions make the company no longer financially sustainable." Unions and politicians are blaming a delay in orders for the company's P.1HH Hammerhead UAV for the financial situation. On November 13, James Paul Johnson and his company, Interstate Helicopters, pleaded guilty and were sentenced in District Court, Oklahoma City, with failure to make a record to FAA. Johnson was sentenced to a $5,000 fine and $5 special assessment, and Interstate Helicopters was sentenced to a $45,000 fine and a $125 special assessment. Both were charged on November 2, 2018. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
