Also: NO Cellos, Aero-Calendar, Super Bowl 50 Procedures, ForeFlight, Textron Aviation, Challenger STC, Terror Costs

Last Friday, a helicopter pilot in Tanzania was struck by ground fire. He managed to safely land the helicopter, but succumbed to his wounds. Three suspected elephant poachers have been arrested in connection with the shooting of the British pilot. The pilot, Roger Gower, was helping Tanzanian authorities track the poachers when they fired on the aircraft. He landed the helicopter in the Maswa Game Reserve, near Serengeti National Park. Four U.S. Senators on the Senate Appropriations Committee have written a letter to the House Transportation Committee that is set to begin consideration of an FAA reauthorization bill, which many think will include a plan to strip Air Traffic Control from the FAA.
