Also: Western Global Pilots, Tamarack Touts Aiken, Metro Delivers EC145E, FRASCA On TH-73A Program

One of the new aircraft you might see at Sun ‘n Fun next week is an exceptionally stout Czech LSA by the name of the Skyleader 600. Distributed by SkyleaderUSA’s Michael Tomazin, the Rotax powered two seater is not your average bargain basement LSA... and boasts some pretty extensive and well-thought-out refinements, including a very slick canopy mechanism and one of the neatest trailing edge wing-steps we've ever seen. UPS, together with its UPS Flight Forward subsidiary, has reported plans to purchase electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft from Beta Technologies (BETA) to augment its air service for select small and mid-size markets.

Airborne-Unmanned 04.06.21: Starship SN11, Lilium Ramps Up, Pipistrel UCAV

Also: Rhode Island--DroneUp, Vertical Flight Society, Rocket Lab, Sun ‘n Fun Digital Daily

On Tuesday, March 30, SpaceX launched its fourth high-altitude flight test of Starship from Starbase in Texas. Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests, Starship Serial Number 11 (SN11) was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee – approximately 10 km in altitude. SN11 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent. Shortly after the landing burn started, SN11 experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly. Now we know why... Lilium GmbH has entered into a business agreement with Qell Acquisition Corp. Upon closing of the transaction, the company will be called Lilium. In concert with the business

Aerox Aviation Oxygen Systems of Bonita Springs Florida returns to Lakeland while celebrating its fortieth year AND the one-year anniversary of ownership by pilot/entrepreneur Scott Ashton. Aerox is exhibiting at booth A-098 and promoting its entire “Oxygen Made Easy” product line. Oxygen Made Easy Aerox has announced several new easy to use, high performance oxygen systems that will be highlighted at the show. From Ashton’s deep connection with Aerox customers as a pilot and CFI, the PrO2 Plus Flight Bag portable oxygen system was created because of Ashton’s belief that hypoxia is impairing pilots at altitudes much lower than the 12,500’ oxygen requirements of 14 CFR 91.211.

Working for YouAt SnF21: The GA Camping Crew

The Short Wing Piper Club Also Has An Information Booth In The Type Club Tent

By Ernest Lee In the early years of Sun-n-Fun, camping with your plane was in a small area on the east side of the field. Adair Henderson, who was chairman, and Iris Morris flew Piper Tri-Pacers and were in the newly formed Tri-Pacer Owners Club (later known as Short Wing Piper Club). As the show grew, the campground moved west. It was the "raw dirt", or the Papa taxiway extension project. Adair and Iris acquired an old mobile home so the crew would have a place to get out of the weather. About this time Adair handed off chairmanship to George Klitsch.
