EAA has reached a major milestone, as the association has surpassed 200,000 members. It appears that more and more pilots are finding EAA represents their kind of flying more than ever before. Jack J. Pelton, EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board said in part, “We reached this milestone by building on the legacy established by our founder, Paul Poberezny, more than 60 years ago when he stated that all who wish to participate are welcome.” Some military pilots with as few as 500 hours flying time could be eligible for a right seat spot at an airline, according to sources familiar with guidelines being discussed by an FAA advisory committee. Under the rules that were put in place in 2013 by the FAA, first officers are required to hold an Airline Transport Pilot

Aero-TV: Agile Aero’s Jeff Greason - Pioneering Disruptive Aerospace Innovations

Who You Gonna Call When you Have a Rocket Engine that Needs a Spacecraft?

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, sat down to talk with an old acquaintance about rocket flight and the spaceflight industry. He met up with Jeff Greason, who is the CEO of a new company called Agile Aero. Greason had been previously connected with XCOR Aerospace, and Jim asked about his venture in this new direction. You really have to watch the video to get the whole story about what Agile Aero is going to accomplish, but in a brief explanation, it could best be described as an organization that helps other companies find quick solutions to prototype spacecraft.

As promised, SpaceX is starting to reveal details of their investigation into the catastrophic loss on September 1 of a Falcon 9, its payload and other damage to the launch complex. SpaceX said in part, "At this stage of the investigation, preliminary review of the data and debris suggests that a large breach in the cryogenic helium system of the second stage liquid oxygen tank took place. All plausible causes are being tracked in an extensive fault tree and carefully investigated. Through the fault tree and data review process, we have exonerated any connection with last year’s CRS-7 mishap.” Speaking before an audience of aviation and military experts assembled at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. last week, Bell Helicopter unvei

Airborne 09.23.16: GA Pilot Sues SFO, Drone Legalities, EAA Hall Of Fame

Also: Zenith Open Hangar Days, KSMO Nonsense, Recalled Devices, Piper M600, 800th TBM, NASAO, Commercial Space

The pilot of the last piston airplane based at San Francisco International Airport has sued the airport, claiming he is being pressured to move his Cessna 182 to a new home base. Courthouse News Service reports that Robert Reinheimer says in his suit that his flight privileges were illegally suspended by then-airport director John Martin for alleged safety violations. Those allegations were determined to be unfounded by the FAA. However, it’s reported that Reinheimer was not notified by the airport that the charges had been dismissed by the agency, and Martin did not respond to his request to have his privileges reinstated. Legal wrangling in a drone shootdown incident may set a national precedent. A judge is expected to determine which court should hear the cas

Last week two fixed base operations located on Santa Monica Airport in California were given 30 day notices of eviction. The city is taking over the operations in its continuing efforts to close the airport, or at least put it out of business. One of the FBOs, Atlantic Aviation, filed a complaint with the FAA. In a letter to the FAA, National Air Transportation Association President, Martin Hiller, called upon the agency to act immediately on the complaint filed last week by Atlantic Aviation over the City of Santa Monica’s proposal to replace Atlantic with a proprietary FBO. Masten Space Systems has introduced two new rockets designed and built on the success of their predecessors which are the Xombie, Xoie, and Xaero. On its blog, the company
