Airborne 07.21.14: Koontz' Barber Award, ESA Spaceplane, Model Flyers Fight FAA

Also: Boeing's 787-9 Demo, Hartzell's TBM Wonder-Prop, More Santa Monica Maneuvering, Garmin Global Pilot, Even more TSA Stupidity

Greg Koontz has been named the recipient of this year’s Bill Barber Award for Showmanship, according to World Airshow News, and will be presented with the award in front of his peers at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on Tuesday, July 29, at Theater in the Woods. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) spaceplane will showcase re-entry technologies after its unconventional launch from Kourou in French Guiana on a Vega rocket this November. Instead of heading north into a polar orbit, as on previous flights, Vega will head eastwards and release the spaceplane into a suborbital path reaching all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

OSH2013, Day One, Revisited: ICON, Pelton, Cessna, SubSonex, BendixKing

Also: Jam-Packed Opening Day Promises That "This Isn't Over" in EAA v FAA Fight

ICON Aircraft has been granted a waiver by the FAA to allow a maximum gross takeoff weight to sixteen-hundred-eighty pounds, which the company says will allow it to proceed with producing the airplane. The company plans to have the first production airplane flying in 2014, but ICON has made predictions about production dates in the past that have not been met. In addition, Hawkins said that the airplane’s performance will be negatively affected by the increase in weight. The price has gone up as well, with a new ICON A-5 now expected to cost about 189-thousand dollars. EAA Chairman Jack Pelton opened his discussion of AirVenture 2013 with even more detail about the way that the FAA ran roughshod over the EAA barely two months ago... and also admitted that last year’s AirVenture showed that EAA had ‘lost its way...’ Still; EAA has made tremendou

Details of the shoot down of MH17 are changing rapidly and very few things are known for sure. It appears that flight MH17 was on an approved flight path over Ukraine when it was shot down. Early indications are that Russian backed Ukrainian separatist may have pulled the trigger. However, there is not yet definite proof this is the case. Cloud-based syncing has been introduced on the latest version of ForeFlight for iOS devices allowing seamless transfers of information between an iPhone and iPad using the same login.
