Airborne 05.18.12: GA Airports, Onex Flies!, EBACE Highlights

Also: Mama Bird Johnson, Lights out For LightSquared, New Cessnas and LearJets, Nextant 400, ACJs, MLX770 Certs, and Aero-Cat-tastrophe!

The FAA has just released a report called 'General Aviation Airports: A National Asset', which was compiled following an 18-month study to capture the many diverse functions of general aviation (GA) airports. The first customer-built example of the new Onex single-place, folding-wing, aerobatic sport aircraft has flown for the first time.

Bill Fisher of Jackson Tennessee flew his AeroVee powered, standard gear Onex on Thursday, May 10th. Bill received the fourth Onex kit sold by Sonex Aircraft, shipped on August 5, 2011. An Arizona court said it will allow a lawsuit against Australian kitplane manufacturer Jabiru Aircraft Company to go forward despite the fact that its headquartered on the other side of the planet. The Arizona state Court of Appeals said that because Jabiru clearly understood that its kits were being sold in the U.S. through a dealer and distribution network, the lawsuit could go forward in Arizona.

By all accounts, Evelyn "Mama Bird" Johnson was an amazing woman. Born just six years after the Wright Brothers first flew, "Mama Bird" learned to fly when she was 34 years old and wound up logging over 57-thousand-six-hundred hours ... or about 6-and-a-half years ... of flight time.

By many estimates, she taught over 5,000 people how to fly, and was never involved in an accident... the aviation community lost this iconic pilot late last week. Mama Bird Johnson passed away at the age of 102 in her home state of Tennessee. 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.
