Airborne 06.22.12: NEXRAD Not So Fast, Pilot's Rights, NTSB's GA Forum

Also: Fly Nano! X-37B Landing, F22 FlightSuits, NASA/FAA Cooperate, TSA Fires 7, The 'New' EAA V The 'Old', and Gamera Flies Again!!!

Stand back... we have LOTS of news for you! The NTSB on Tuesday issued a Safety Alert to warn pilots who use in-cockpit FIS-B and Satellite Weather display systems that the NEXRAD "age indicator" can be misleading. The actual NEXRAD data can be as much as 20 minutes older than the age indication on the display in the cockpit. I

f misinterpreted, this difference in time can present potentially serious safety hazards to aircraft operating in the vicinity of fast-moving and quickly developing weather systems. Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe (R) first introduced his Pilot's Bill of Rights, which would limit the authority of the FAA in some proceedings it takes against pilots, in 2011. He wrote the legislation to address what he says is the ability of the agency to pull a pilot's airman privileges "on a whim." The bill would give pilots access to evidence used by the FAA to revoke pilot certificates, and provide an appeals process should their certificates be lifted. The NTSB has just concluded its General Aviation Safety Forum titled "Climbing to the Next Level" earlier this week. The forum was held in Washington, D.C. at the NTSB's headquarters this past Tuesday and Wednesday. The FlyNano electric prototype airplane made its first flight last week. The not much bigger than a breadbox single-place open-cockpit floatplane was unveiled at the Aero 2011 trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. We have ALL this and SO MUCH MORE in this week's edition of AIRBORNE!

As always, PLEASE keep sending us your feedback and ideas... you have no idea how important that is to us as we evolve the Airborne mission. As we listen to your critiques, we're getting a far better idea as to how to tweak and fine-tune future Airborne programming to fit your needs. We think you're going to like what we have in mind for the future.
