Data retrieved from the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) aboard the Germanwings Airbus A320 that went down in the French Alps indicates that the pilot had been locked out of the cockpit before the plane impacted terrain. A senior French military official involved in the investigation said that initially there had been a light knocking on the door, then more insistent knocking and shouting. Eventually, the captain was reportedly trying to break through the reinforced cockpit door. There was apparently never any answer from the co-pilot still in the cockpit. Seventy years ago this week in 1945, a B-29, later named “Doc”, rolled off the assembly line at Boeing and was delivered to the U.S. Army Air Forces. That same aircraft was rolled out and delivered again on the 70th a

Also: Nanchang CJ-6A, USAF T-X Program, UK AAIB Withholds Info, Aussie Aero-Politics, GPS Errors Found, ATC Reform

House Bill HR 476 will eliminate G.I. training benefits for those veterans wishing to build a career as a professional pilot. As a result, a letter-writing campaign has been mounted by an ad-hoc group which hopes to defeat HR 476. On a website designed to send letters to Congress on a variety of issues, the group "Stop HR 476 - Protect Veterans Post 9/11 Benefits" says that while the bill is titled: "GI Bill Education Quality Enhancement Act of 2015", it will actually eliminate the opportunity for Veterans to become professional pilots after serving their Country and earning their Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits."

Airborne 03.23.15: Amazon Gets UAV OK, 10K ADS-B Equipped A/C, CS100 FTV5 Flies!

Also: White House UAV Update, AVW: Glider Looping, Rockwell Collins, UAV v News Helis, ERAU Award, Leonov's Spacewalk Remembered

The FAA has issued an experimental airworthiness certificate to an Amazon Logistics unmanned aircraft design that the company will use for research and development and crew training. Much like any experimental airworthiness certificate, it comes with some restrictions. All flight operations must be conducted at 400 feet or below during daylight hours in visual meteorological conditions. The UAS must always remain within visual line-of-sight of the pilot and observer, and the pilot actually flying the aircraft must have at least a private pilot’s certificate and current medical certification. The march towards the overhaul of the national airspace navigation system continues as the General Aviation Manufacturers Association relayed an announcement that ADS-B equipment is no
