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. 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. On April 1, 2021, the United States Marine Corps intends to permanently close MCAS Miramar’s Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. The future of the artifacts, research library, and aircraft, which belong to the Marine Corps, is unknown. We have been told th

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

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

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (03.02.21)

Aero Linx: The General Aviation Safety Council GASCo was founded in 1964 to provide a forum in which all of the General Aviation organisations could meet to share safety information. There were only a few members in those days but today almost every organisation that represents those who supply, maintain, control, support, regulate and, most importantly, fly each and every kind of flying machine is a member of GASCo. They meet to share experiences and ideas for the improvement of flight safety. GASCo is a Charity funded by its member organisations, pilots, aviation authorities and other generous contributors. In addition to the Council Meetings for the member organisations, GASCo produces GASCo Flight Safety  magazine (for a small subscription), the free monthly e-newsletter Flight Safety Extra, organises Safety Evenings, seminars and flight safety events.
