ANN's Daily Aero-Term (06.29.15): Man Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS)

Man Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) MANPADS are lightweight, shoulder−launched, missile systems used to bring down aircraft and create mass casualties. The potential for MANPADS use against airborne aircraft is real and requires familiarity with the subject. Terrorists choose MANPADS because the weapons are low cost, highly mobile, require minimal set−up time, and are easy to use and maintain. Although the weapons have limited range, and their accuracy is affected by poor visibility and adverse weather, they can be fired from anywhere on land or from boats where there is unrestricted visibility to the target.

Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (06.29.15)

“SpaceX has demonstrated extraordinary capabilities in its first six cargo resupply missions to the station, and we know they can replicate that success. We will work with and support SpaceX to assess what happened, understand the specifics of the failure and correct it to move forward. This is a reminder that spaceflight is an incredible challenge, but we learn from each success and each setback. Today's launch attempt will not deter us from our ambitious human spaceflight program.” Source: Administrator Charles Bolden, commenting on the loss, Sunday, of the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services 7 (CRS-7) mission.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (06.28.15)

Aero Linx: Collegiate Soaring Association In late 1985, CSA was formed to foster and promote the amateur sports of gliding and soaring in the context of Colleges and Universities, on a National and non-profit basis. CSA shares goals with other bodies, such as the National Inter-collegiate Flying Association (NIFA), the Soaring Society of America (SSA), and a host of University Sports Associations. Since 1989, CSA has been recognized by SSA as an Affiliate, and is thereby connected to NAA and FAI, but is otherwise independent. Perhaps unlike NIFA, CSA's end-goal activity is a sport aspect of flying (soaring) rather than a career aspect. Nonetheless, CSA encourages the use of gliders in Aviation Education, for which they offer many advantages...
