Also: FSANA-Flight Schools In CA, Bahamas Restrictions, OneWeb Launches, Airbus A400M

Textron Aviation has successfully completed initial ground engine tests on the prototype Cessna SkyCourier twin utility turboprop featuring Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-65SC engines.

These ground engine tests verified the functionality of the fuel system and engines, as well as the interface with the avionics and electrical systems. “The successful engine run tests are a pivotal step toward proving the maturity of the aircraft and its systems as we prepare for first flight,” said Chris Hearne, senior vice president, Programs and Engineering. “We continue to meet each important milestone in our development schedule, and we look forward to having an outstanding aircraft for our customers.” Anna Stanphill of Deland, Florida was awarded the 5th Martha King Scholarship for Female Flight Instructors during the annual Women in Aviation International Conference in Orlando, Florida. The scholarship is valued at over $18,000 and consists of $5,000 cash toward obtaining an initial flight instructor certificate or added ratings and free, lifetime access to all King Schools courses including Flight Instructor Refresher Courses (FIRCs) for life. Boeing announced a temporary suspension of production operations at its Puget Sound area facilities in light of the state of emergency in Washington state and the company's continuous assessment of the accelerating spread of the coronavirus in the region. These actions are being taken to ensure the well-being of employees, their families and the local community, and will reportedly include an orderly shutdown consistent with the requirements of its customers. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
