Airborne 01.15.21: DeLand FtH Cancelled, Blue Origin Flt, FAA SkyPolicing

Also: Alaska Airlines 737 MAX, Super Bowl LV, COVID-19 Test Requirement, Atlas' Last 747-8s

ANN received official confirmation that COVID concerns have again halted a sport aviation event. And lets face it this was something many of us were looking forward to. The January 30th DeLand 'Flyway to Highway' event, under the direction of the folks who conduct the annual DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase, which was was designed to be an interim event to help the industry gather a bit before their main event next November, BUT, it’s now officially OFF.  It was a beautiful thing to see... Blue Origin successfully completed its 14th mission to space and back, Thursday, for the New Shepard program. On a gorgeous Thursday morning, the Blue Origin team conducted another test of the New Shepard/Blue Origin system as they edge closer to the advent of manned flight operations... which may come this year.

Also: GA UK Restrictions, Educational UAS Protections, Duncan Aviation Interns, CAE USAF KC-135 Training

The flight school business is one of the few that seems both intent and surprisingly successful surviving even during a pandemic. As such, the community is readying a critically important get-together to takes notes and learn from each other as well as a great line-up of speakers and instructors in just a few more weeks. Flight school operators, chief flight instructors, and persons considering opening a flight school should take special note of the upcoming International Flight School Operators Conference. Attendees will have over 25 multi-track sessions to choose from during mornings and afternoons March 4-5. Citing inadequate training of a pilot whose plane crash resulted in 11 deaths, the NTSB has called on the FAA to better monitor the effectiveness of flight instructors. Three safety reco

ANN's Monday/Holiday Schedule

In Proper Observance Of The Federal Holiday...

Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.... ANN will observe the Federal holiday, but will still be active with some news and info, due to the potential criticality of that info to the aviation community. To that end, the Aero-News staff will not be publishing an edition of our Airborne video news program on Monday. On our website, you might find a fewer stories on Monday than you might expect otherwise. But; we'll be back to a full complement of stories on Tuesday.

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera--Final

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-n-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy) ANN E-I-C Note: Here it is… the final stretch… and that much-anticipated report card… Again, we apologize for how long it took to get the whole series published, but between pandemic issues, the fact that we’re carefully studying how we’ll do flight tests from here on out (as opposed to the junk often published online, especially on YouTube), and the fact that we’ve been laboriously rebuilding ANN into a mechanism that can better survive whatever the future throws at us… well… we’ve had a LOT on our plates. OK… let’s summarize the preceding three-or-four million words (or so they seemed). The following report card is my subjective analysis of all that we experienced in this flight test. while emphasizing that this report card is specifically detailed for a high-performance single engine cruiser… and evaluated to what I consider to be proper criteria for s

Airborne 01.13.21: Spirit of St Louis TWO, Drone Bets, Tecnam v COVID

Also: Duncan Aviation, Living Legends of Aviation Postponed, Tailwind Technologies, Boeing 4-Q

An extraordinary effort reached a milestone this week... the first flight AND return of a painstakingly handcrafted replica of the Spirit of St Louis -- The Spirit of St Louis 2. Piloted by Robert Ragozzino, the bird made a 15-20 minute first flight and returned to a hangar in Bethany OKlahoma, for a chance to debrief and 'de-squawk' the bird before the resumption of the flight test program. What's this about? The goal of the SOS2 project is to recreate Charles Lindbergh's 1927 solo flight from New York to Paris across the Atlantic Ocean. This flight will be completed in the aforementioned replica of the original Spirit of St. Louis aircraft. Place your bets because now there’s an official company ready to take your money. The Drone Racing League (DRL) has announced a deal with Draft-Kings Inc. to

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
