Aero-News: Quote of the Day (03.02.21)

What they’re learning in this test, they’ll take with them into the control room for first flight.” Source: Sean Clarke, NASA’s X-57 principal investigator, discussing the tests and prep underway prior to the first flight test of the X-57.

Inhofe Leads CONTRACT Act Introduction to Support Air Traffic Controllers

Would Remove The Disincentive For Retired FAA Air Traffic Controllers To Work At Federal Contract Towers

US Senators Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) led 39 of their Senate colleagues in re-introducing S. 419, the Continuity for Operators with Necessary Training Required for ATC Contract Towers (CONTRACT) Act of 2021. There are 257 air traffic control facilities participating in the FAA’s Federal Contract Tower Program. These contract towers are an important part of our national air traffic control system—serving communities through a proven public-private partnership that increases safety and improves air traffic control services, while lowering the cost to the federal government. Reps. Julia Brownley (D-CA) and Rodney Davis (R-IL) re-introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives.

From 2014 (YouTube Version): A New Single-Seat SportPlane Shows Great Potential For Serious Fun

While at the Sport Aviation Expo 2014, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell stopped by to talk with Dan Weseman, the president of Sport Performance Aviation. Sitting on display was their snappy looking single place light sport airplane that seems to be cut from a different cloth than most other LSA’s on display. Called the Panther, the airplane is being produced only in a kit version at this time. It is designed for someone to certify as an experimental amateur built airplane that complies with the LSA definition. It’s also designed for the person who wants to fly a sport plane that is truly “sporty.” With such features as folding wings, rollover protection for the pilot, and adjustable seats and rudder pedals, it can tickle the “Walter Mitty” fighter pilot hidden and most of us.
