EAA Air Academy Postpones Again Until 2022

Any 2021 Registration Fees That Have Been Received Will Be Refunded

The EAA Air Academy will remain on hiatus until 2022, with this summer's sessions in Oshkosh canceled due to the difficulty of scheduling multiple weeks of education sessions involving young people from throughout the country. "Given the difficulties in providing the operational extras needed for youth residence camps in the current environment, it simply wasn't possible to plan a quality Air Academy experience for young aviation enthusiasts this year," said Ron Connolly, EAA's museum and education director. "We look forward to inviting many of these young people back to Oshkosh for the 2022 Air Academy sessions."

Classic Aero-TV: Ruggedly Innovative - The New Zenith CH-750 Super Duty

From 2017 (YouTube Version): STOL CH-750 Super Duty Introduced At AirVenture…

Zenith Aircraft Company introduced a new airplane designed for fun at AirVenture in July. The STOL CH-750 Super Duty is a "big version of our STOL CH-750", according to Sebastian Heinz, CEO of Zenith Aircraft. Heinz told Aero-News editor Tom Patton that the company has added a jump-seat in the rear of the airplane. The wing area has been increased to 162 square feet with a 33-foot wingspan. The gross weight of the airplane is 1,900 pounds, which takes it out of the Light Sport category, Heinz said.

AD: Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes

AD 2020-26-19 Requires Revising The ALS Of The Existing Aircraft Maintenance Manual

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Model PC-7 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. This AD requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations section (ALS) of the existing aircraft maintenance manual (AMM) to introduce new mandatory repetitive inspections for the flap pivot arm assemblies and for certain wing angle brackets, and to implement a change to the Oxygen cylinder and pressure reducer task item. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective March 29, 2021.

AD: Piper Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes

AD 2021-04-07 Requires Identifying And Correcting Nonconforming Stall Warning Heat Control Systems

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Piper Aircraft, Inc., (Piper) Models PA-46-350P (Malibu Mirage), PA-46R-350T (Malibu Matrix), and PA-46-500TP (Malibu Meridian) airplanes. This AD was prompted by a finding of several airplanes with wing assemblies that did not have the proper stall warning heater modification design. Without the proper stall warning heat control modification kit installed, during flights into icing conditions with the landing gear down, ice can form on the stall vane, which may result in failure of the stall warning system. This AD requires identifying and correcting nonconforming stall warning heat control systems. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective March 30, 2021.
