Aero-News: Quote of the Day (12.04.16)

“All three institutions have now sent a strong signal in favour of modernizing the Agency and the European aviation system as a whole. There is clear political will to ensure a risk-based, proportionate approach guides all future EASA work... For general aviation, it is imperative that we have the appropriate level of regulation for each activity, combined with efficient oversight that facilitates the development of new and innovative products. With the Basic Regulation amended so infrequently, we must ensure these concepts are framed correctly for the future.” Source: Pete Bunce, president and CEO of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), commenting on the European Union’s Member States having reached agreement on a new mandate for the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The agreement opens the door for final negotiations among the European Parliament, EU Member States, and the European Commission to agree on a final text.

Stratos says they saw little advantage in developing a single jet-engine aircraft that has lower performance than an equivalent propeller aircraft. They decided to go with an aircraft that has a service ceiling of 41,000 feet and will cruise at 415 KTAS. Amid claims of the misuse of a federal authority, the FAA has placed a temporary flight restriction over the area where protesters are attempting to stop the Standing Rock oil pipeline in North Dakota. The TFR prevents all flights over the protest area except ai
