ANN's Daily Aero-Term (05.23.20): Precision Approach Radar

Precision Approach Radar

Radar equipment in some ATC facilities operated by the FAA and/or the military services at joint-use civil/military locations and separate military installations to detect and display azimuth, elevation, and range of aircraft on the final approach course to a runway. This equipment may be used to monitor certain non-radar approaches, but is primarily used to conduct a precision instrument approach (PAR) wherein the controller issues guidance instructions to the pilot based on the aircraft’s position in relation to the final approach course (azimuth), the glidepath (elevation), and the distance (range) from the touchdown point on the runway as displayed on the radar scope.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.23.20)

“Studies have shown that women’s perceptions about being fully qualified for a job makes them less likely to apply, even though there is a waiver option... Modifying the height standard allows the Air Force to accommodate a larger and more diverse rated applicant pool within existing aircraft constraints.” Source: Lt. Col. Jessica Ruttenber, Air Force mobility planner and programmer and team leader on the Women’s Initiative Team who led the height standards adjustment effort, recently announced by the service.

Airborne 05.18.20: Snowbird Tragedy, Drone Idiot, Reserve U-2 Pilot

Also: F-22 Accident, MultiGP's IO2020 Postponed, Women in Aviation Advisory Board, European A/C Have More Time

A Sunday morning accident involving the Canadian Forces famed Snowbirds flight demonstration team has taken the life of one of their team members, and injured the pilot. The accident occurred in the Brocklehurst neighborhood of Kamloops, BC, after rain and low visibility delayed the team’s departure from Okanagan, where they were preparing to launch a planned flyover. The accident occurred shortly after departure. After holding for weather as part of the Operation Inspiration formation flight tour across Canada, a two-ship formation departed the Kamloops airport shortly after 1100 local time. Fearing another black eye from yet another irresponsible drone operator, the latest indignity whereby a Michigan based UAV pilot flew into or very close to the flight path of a Blue Angels publ

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.22.20)

"A brief history of how this design came about… a friend of design engineer Bob Barrows requested he create a larger version of the Bearhawk 4-Place as this friend is a big guy. Bob did the drawings for his friend who began construction on it. However, health issues forced him to quit working on the project and it sat for about a year. One day I was talking to Collin Campbell who told me he was getting bored now that his Bearhawk LSA was finished and flying... Truly, there is no one in the world, except Bob himself, more qualified to have built this prototype than Collin."  Source: Mark Goldberg, president of Avipro / Bearhawk Aircraft -- who manufactures Quick Build kits of the Bearhawk models. Mark has been eager to announce the Model 5 for some time.
