Airborne 11.22.17: AOPA Plays Icon Apologist, Lancair Mako, Mooney Ovation Ultra

Also: Airbus A380 Deal, Acting PM Belize In A/C Accident, Hartzell Propeller, Crop Duster Shooting

ANN’s senior editorial staff was stunned to read a recent article by the AOPA Air Safety Institute’s Executive Director, Richard McSpadden, in which the ASI Boss not only seemed to offer a probable cause long before the NTSB report is due (and even before the NTSB Prelim was published) but seemed intent on appointing itself an apologist for all things Icon. This piece lauded Icon and their errant CEO, Kirk Hawkins, despite the fact that the company has proven itself incompetent on a number of levels, has engaged in fraudulent statements and conduct, has acted wildly and recklessly through its promo and demo programs, is over a half decade behind original schedules, has over-priced the aircraft to a point where it is now twice to three times the price of a competitive product and well over

Airborne-Unmanned 11.21.17: Resolute Eagle UAS, Aerotain Skye, Novus Unmanned 17

Also: Mars Drone, ASTM Drones Standards, Huerta Reflects On His Tenure, UAS Delivers Acceptance Letters

On Nov. 8, PAE ISR’s Resolute Eagle UAS completed its first commercial airspace flight. The flight took place at the Pan-Pacific UAS Test Range—located at Pendleton Airport in Oregon—operating under a FAA Certificate of Waiver. A Group 3 fixed wing tactical UAS, the Resolute Eagle is known for delivering advanced performance in payload capacity, available power, and a small logistical footprint to support various types of missions. The FAA has granted a waiver from the agency’s small drone rules (Part 107) to Cevitasnow in Columbus, OH, to allow the company to operate a helium-filled Aerotain Skye tethered aircraft over people on the ground. The Aerotain Skye resembles a tethered floating beach ball, but is technically an “aircraft.” It carries a camera and sm

Barnstorming: Where Do We Go from Here? And How Do We Get There?

After 20+ Years of Shaking Things Up, There Is Still So Much More to Do

Have you ever believed in something so strongly that you’re willing to throw ‘common sense’ out of the window? To throw caution to the wind… to pursue that which you feel is one of the most important things you can do… even when there are other more conventional pursuits to follow? Welcome to the thought, passion and mission behind Aero-News… where what we’ve done may not have always made the most sense, in terms of the health and welfare of our business, but it came from the heart, and it came about because we believed (above all else) that it was the right thing to do. But doing the right thing has a price--one that has grown over the years… And by and large, we’ve been paying that price all by ourselves...  as the industry slowly eroded… fading away due to neglect, ignorance, and a woeful lack of passionate response to its enemies and all those who threatened its future… to where we stand

Airborne 11.17.17: Cabri G2 Heli-Upgrade, NBAA/KSMO, USAF Pilot Shortage

Also: Electronic Flight Bags, SNC's Dream Chaser, flydubai Buys 225 737 MAX, Scottish Airshow Nixed

The FAA has approved Service Bulletin 17-009 for the Guimbal Cabri G2 that allows the pilot to use additional horsepower from the aircraft’s Lycoming 0360-J2A engine. Previously the allowed power had been 145 horsepower. The new rating allows the pilot to utilize 160 horsepower without any negative implications to operating costs or additional inspections. NBAA has filed its final brief before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit challenging the legality of the unprecedented settlement agreement reached earlier this year between the FAA and the city of Santa Monica, CA over the future of Santa Monica Municipal Airport (SMO). The U.S. Air Force is short nearly 2,000 pilots, and is facing a potential readiness challenge, according to the Secretary of the Air Force. Secr
