Airborne 06.24.16: ADS-B Analysis, NavWorx Price Drop, ALPA v Transport Canada

Also: Porker Of The Month, Aviation BBB?, Super Puma, AirVenture Events, FedEx 767s, Solar Impulse, Sikorsky

Flight Safety Foundation has released the study "Benefits Analysis of Space-Based ADS-B", investigating the application of ADS-B networks to meet the predicted safety challenges of air traffic growth over the next 20 years. The study also assesses how space-based ADS-B can enhance the world's aviation network by introducing a near-real-time flight surveillance capability that provides 100 percent global coverage. As the 2020 mandate for ADS-B out capabilities continues to edge closer, NavWorx has announced a temporary price reduction on its ADS600-B, which provides ADS-B Out-and-In capabilities. The ADS600-B is being made available with a $200 price reduction effective immediately. The Air Line Pilots Association, International has called on Transport Canada to revise their

Airplanes Make Clouds Brighter

New Study In The Journal 'Nature Communications' Focuses On Contrails

Clouds may have a net warming or cooling effect on climate, depending on their thickness and altitude. Artificially formed clouds called contrails form due to aircraft effluent, in a cloudless sky, contrails are thought to have minimal effect on climate. But what happens when the sky is already cloudy? In a new study published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists from the University of Hertfordshire and Stockholm University show that contrails that are formed within existing high clouds increase the reflectivity of these clouds, i.e. their ability to reflect light.

Airborne 06.23.16: Solar Impulse In Spain, Terrafugia Approval, Stratolaunch

Also: Twin Otter Rescue, #OSH16Coolest Program, AMA, Charlotte-Douglas, Canadian Astros, Hidden Airline Fees, SpaceX Cargo Launch

The flight of the Solar Impulse-2 around the world has had its challenges, and the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean was planned with the utmost care because of this final long-distance overwater leg of the journey. As it turned out, things went so well that the aircraft arrived in Seville, Spain ahead of the original planned schedule. At one point during the flight, pilot Bertrand Piccard blogged that he felt quite tired at the 44 hour point, and that he had to cope with some turbulence over the Azores Islands. Later in the flight he spent some time chatting with Sir Richard Branson. We may be getting closer to a Terrafugia flying car as the FAA has approved a Petition for Exemption filed in 2014 allowing a vehicle in the Transition street-legal airplane c

Airborne 06.22.16: Lumenati Solar, Microlight e-Go, AirVenture16 After-Hours

Also: NATA, Hartzell’s Joe Brown, Donations Sought, Blue Origin, Blue Angels, Bezos Wants Prizes, CRJ900

Solar Impulse-Two was not the only solar-powered aircraft at New York's JFK Airport this last weekend. The ‘No fuel’ Solar Impulse was joined by another ‘clean energy’ airplane that uses a combination of solar, electric and wind-power, which landed at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport after a 200-mile flight. The Luminati Aerospace Substrata is a 400-pound solar electric aircraft with a 45-foot wingspan. The Substrata employs a blend of solar power, batteries, and what the company calls “wind-harvesting technologies.” The company says the Substrata extracts energy from any wind gradient, which allows the craft to be powered by relatively small battery packs. Recreational aviation comes in many shapes and forms, and one of those is
