Airborne 10.10.18: EAA Explains LSA Future, AEA's New Boss, E-AB Stats

Also: Flight Design Specification Configurator, FlightServ, H225M 100K Hours, L3 Technologies

First of all, if you've seen the breathless AOPA "Breaking News" alerts, don't be fooled.

They didn't break the news and their reports, which all but ignore EAA, are not the result of an AOPA effort, but of EAA. Again. EAA says the proposed weight limit change to 3,600 pounds for LSA’s is part of the current discussions between EAA and FAA prior to any broad MOSAIC (Modernization of Special Airworthiness Certificates) rulemaking, but discussions are still in the formative stage. “There are numerous ideas that have emerged from discussions regarding MOSAIC, which began more than two years ago...” said Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety. “One area that emerged was how to help LSA fulfill its full potential. While weight-limit changes are one possibility, a specific number such as 3,600 pounds is something that is still very much in the exploratory stage.” Following an extensive search process, the Aircraft Electronics Association's board of directors announced its selection of Mike Adamson as its president and chief executive officer to become effective March 25, 2019, during the 62nd annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show in Palm Springs, California. Adamson will succeed Paula Derks, who is retiring next spring after serving as AEA president and CEO since 1996. According to the recently finalized results of the 2017 GA and Part 135 Activity Survey, pilots of experimental amateur-built (E-AB) aircraft were involved in fatal accidents at a lower rate than has ever been recorded, with 2.63 fatal accidents per 100,000 flight hours last year. This breaks the record set the previous year, when E-AB pilots were involved in 3.6 fatal accidents per 100,000 flight hours. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
