Airborne 09.21.20: B-25 Down In CA, Ampaire Flies Again, UAL Agreement

Also: STC'ed: Avidyne IFD540, Airbus Wins NASA Contract, LogTen Pro Pilot Logbook, SmartSky Beats Patent Challenge

We are still evaluating the information coming in on a crash in the central part of California state, near Stockton,  involving a WWII generation Mitchell Bomber that went down short of an airport and into an 'open' field, where an irrigation ditch, and other impediments, apparently caused serious damage to the airframe.  Three people were on the aircraft. Two were transported to a local hospital, and one was able to walk away. Ampaire has flown its second technology demonstrator. The aircraft is a refined version of its Cessna 337 “Electric EEL” hybrid-electric aircraft conversion. The company refers to the new flight test aircraft as the Hawaii Bird, as it will be flown by Ampaire and Mokulele Airlines pilots on air routes in Hawaii later this year in a se

Airborne-Flight Training 09.23.20: DA20 Upgrades, CAE Financing, EMU Partnership

Also: Sterling Flight Training, National Aviation Academy, Young Eagles Workshops, ERAU Suspensions

One of our favorite training birds is back... and upgraded, to boot! The high demand for single engine training aircraft has led to the return to production of the Diamond DA20-C1, powered by a 125HP Continental IO-240 engine and equipped with new state-of-the-art G500TXi Avionics. With over 1,000 DA20’s already operating worldwide, the strong desire for lower cost new single engine aircraft in training environments continues. The DA20 is proven to be the safest and most efficient aircraft for primary training, and fleet operators are raving about its return to production. A new program could have a significant impact on your access to flight training...

Airborne-Flight Training 09.10.20: Navy/NASA T-38s, Vincennes U, King Schools

Also: I/ITSEC 2020 Goes Virtual, Chad Weaver Av Scholarship, Airbus H145/135 Sim, S Utah Univ Adds Bell 505

The United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) is the Navy's principal operator of the Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon supersonic jet trainer, with 10 of the twin-engined aircraft in its inventory. The school's T-38s fly an average of 1,100 hours per year, providing students with valuable experience evaluating its performance, flying qualities, dynamics, and transonic and supersonic flight characteristics. Because the T-38C is the school's primary fixed-wing trainer, students are required to receive formal flight training in the aircraft prior to their arrival. In the past, this has been done at the U.S. Air Force's Air Education and Training Command at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, AETC had to pare back its training commitments to the Navy and its o

Classic Aero-TV: 'That's All Brother'-Restoring a True Piece of Military History

From 2015: History Comes Alive Thanks to A Magnificent CAF Effort

The story of the Douglas C-47 named, “That’s all Brother,” is fascinating from two points of view. First, it was the C 47 that that led the D-Day invasion in June 1944. Second, it still exists and has been found. The aircraft was on display at EAA AirVenture this year, and ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, met with Adam Smith, the Executive Vice President of strategic development for the Commemorative Air Force, to learn how they found it.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (09.23.20): Computer Navigation Fix (CNF)

Computer Navigation Fix (CNF) A Computer Navigation Fix is a point defined by a latitude/longitude coordinate and is required to support Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) operations. A five-letter identifier denoting a CNF can be found next to an “x” on en route charts and on some approach charts. Eventually, all CNFs will be labeled and begin with the letters “CF” followed by three consonants (e.g., ‘CFWBG’). CNFs are not recognized by ATC, are not contained in ATC fix or automation databases, and are not used for ATC purposes. Pilots should not use CNFs for point-to-point navigation (e.g., proceed direct), filing a flight plan, or in aircraft/ATC communications. Use of CNFs has not been adopted or recognized by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
