Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers May Receive Johnson & Johnson’s Vaccine

Appropriate Precautions Are Still Advised 

Following the Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, the FAA has determined that pilots and others who perform safety sensitive duties may receive the vaccine under the conditions of their FAA-issued airman medical certification. FAA and contract air traffic controllers, who are subject to FAA medical clearance, may also receive the vaccine. To maintain the highest level of safety in the National Airspace System, the FAA will require the affected recipients of this single-dose vaccine to wait 48 hours before conducting safety sensitive aviation duties, such as flying or controlling air traffic.

Airborne 02.26.21: PAL-V Milestone, Air Race E, EAA Air Academy

Also: Howard 250 Joins LSFM, SmartSky Raises Bucks, Hydrogen Powered Propulsion System

Getting a flying car to the market is hard but PAL-V notes latest milestone. Following their obtaining on-the-road operating permissions for Europe, PAL-V is now reportedly also the first to complete the full certification basis with EASA. Based on PAL-V's 10 years of test results, EASA specialist teams finalized the requirements for the PAL-V Liberty. The final phase is compliance demonstration before CarFlying becomes reality for PAL-V's customers. Air Race E, a hopeful electric air race promoter, has announced it is launching two new distinct race classes: one an airplane and the other a VTOL. The move to amplify its operations and create more races is reportedly the direct result of high levels of interest and demand from across the industry. The new airplane formula will be named the Performance Class and w

Airborne-Special Edition 02.11.21: Aviation Safety Resources' Larry Williams

Also: Next-Gen Airplane Parachutes, Lighter, Smaller, and More Cost-Effective, Coming Soon

ANN’s Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell has an interesting background as a test pilot... But one of the most exciting programs he was part of …..was flying and testing the first early generation of emergency airframe parachute systems on several different Cessnas, while working with two separate development programs. The technology has progressed so much since then, but the next generation of airframe recovery parachute systems is undergoing preparation for the civilian market and beyond... promising better/lighter materials, small sizes, and lower costs. Our Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell interviewed Aviation Safety Resources’ CEO and President Larry Williams to get the inside scoop on what we’ll be seeing from ASR in the very near future -- and take our words for it, ASR seems ready to sh

Airborne-Unmanned 02.23.21: Mars Helicopter, HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H, Ampaire

Also: ERAU Researchers Receive Grants, Aquiline Drones, Cygnus, Flint Hills and UAV Navigation

Mission controllers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California have received the first status report from the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter, which landed Feb. 18, 2021, at Jezero Crater attached to the belly of the agency’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover. The downlink, which arrived at 1630 EST via a connection through the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, indicates that both the helicopter, which will remain attached to the rover for 30 to 60 days, and its base station (an electrical box on the rover that stores and routes communications between the rotorcraft and Earth) are operating as expected. FRESHVALE LTD released their new HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H. The unmanned helicopter HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H successfully performed tests by delivering 150 kg cargo to 130 km demonstrating safe autonomou

Embry-Riddle Celebrates Electric Aero-Milestone

Four Years of Work Culminates in First Taxi Test

After nearly four years of perseverance, the Embry-Riddle's Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) team is celebrating a milestone in its electric propulsion research: its Diamond HK-36 completed a successful taxi test exclusively on electrical power at the Daytona Beach International Airport. Dubbed the eSpirit of St. Louis — in honor of Charles Lindbergh’s notion of balance between aviation and the environment — the aircraft serves as a testbed for students to gain experience on the interdisciplinary aspects of mixing electrical engineering skills with aerospace engineering. As faculty and student researchers develop a unique fully electric propulsion system for the eSpirit, they bring aviation a step closer to cleaner and quieter flight — objectives that could revolutionize commercial aviation.

EAA, GA Groups Meet with New Federal Air Surgeon

Dr. Northrup Is A Retired Air Force Colonel And A Senior FAA AME

EAA and other general aviation groups had the opportunity earlier this month to connect with the FAA's new Federal Air Surgeon, Dr. Susan Northrup, to welcome her to her new position and briefly discuss some of the major issues faced by GA pilots relating to medical certification. "Having a Federal Air Surgeon such as Dr. Northrup, who grew up in an aviation family and has long been involved in general aviation, is certainly a benefit in future discussions about the issues that GA pilots face," said Sean Elliott, EAA's vice president of advocacy and safety. "We also look forward to working with her in more detail and in conjunction with EAA's Aeromedical Advisory Council."
