Airborne 04.17.15: DC Gyroplane Fallout, ICAS Airshow Update, Message To Space

Also: Blue Origin, Flying Cucumber?, BBJ Combi, NetJets Partners w/Ohio State, ExIm Helo Deal, Long-Range Navy UAS

Obviously, the stunt pulled by Douglas Hughes of Ruskin, Florida on Wednesday afternoon of landing his small autogyro on the capitol building lawn did not receive a kind welcome. It appears his attempt to deliver a message protesting campaign financing is lost in the media hype regarding the lack of security in the sky over Washington. Unfortunately, his choice of a protest vehicle also delivers an incredibly bad impression of those of us who enjoy responsible recreational aviation. Airshows are exciting and it can be fun to plan a day trip to a place where one is occurring. Now, The International Council of Airshows, known as ICAS, which is a trade association representing the airshow industry, has posted its 2015 air shows calendar in a new format.

Call it the Aero-Marriage of the decade... It has just been announced that Alan Klapmeier will lead the integration and growth of a new multiple-product aviation company incorporating two of our favorite aircraft -- and people. ONE Aviation Corporation has been formed to design, develop, and manufacture a family of aircraft, each of which will be a market leader in its category and class. ONE Aviation’s core products include the Eclipse 550 twin-engine light jet and the Kestrel K350 single-engine turboprop.

It is, but it&
