ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (09.22.19)

Aero Linx: NORCAL Soaring Association We are a 100% volunteer organization.  Emptying the trash, pushing gliders around, fixing golf carts … there’s no paid staff, it is all done by ‘us’.  So when you become one of us, your fellow members will expect you to pitch in. From a pure financial perspective, the volunteer side of our club is what allows us to offer some of the lowest rates not just in the area, but in the country. We think that it goes beyond dollars and cents. Volunteering helps you soak up valuable learning about the sport that is just not available in books or lesson plans.  We look forward to meeting you, and hope you will enjoy the camaraderie of our very special club :)

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (09.22.19)

“This is an exciting opportunity for NASA to aggressively push forward towards the Moon in partnership with several American small businesses as a vanguard to Artemis and sustained human presence beyond low-Earth orbit. This mission is highly ambitious in both cost and schedule – and taking that deliberate risk is part of the objective of this mission – alongside the rapid technological advancement in cislunar navigation and the opportunity to verify orbital trajectory assumptions and retire unknowns for future missions.” Source: Jim Reuter, associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate, discussing the $13.7 million contract awarded by NASA to Advanced Space of Boulder, Colorado, to develop and operate a CubeSat mission to the same lunar orbit targeted for Gateway – an orbiting outpost astronauts will visit befor

Airborne 09.20.19: FAA Admin To Fly MAX Sim, Chine Drone Ban, SpaceX

Dickson said that he plans to make the trip this week in order to make an evaluation of software changes to the airplane's MCAS, which has been implicated in two accidents earlier this year leading to a worldwide grounding of the airliner. Dickson, a former airline pilot, will also meet with Boeing officials in Seattle. He said the FAA has no firm timeline for a return to service for the 737 MAX. Even drone politics are getting ugly...
