Severe Downdraft NOT Countered -- Even With Full Power
Landing on glaciers, on purpose, seems like a strange thing to
do for this Florida pilot. Then again, if you know what you're
doing it must be pretty cool... so long as no surprises are
encountered. Well, a surprise is just what this Helio pilot ran
into as she tried landing on the McCall Glacier.
BUT... Concerned with Repair Station Provision That Threatens
US Jobs and Safety Cooperation
GAMA is praising the passage of the FAA Reauthorization bill but
expressing concern over a provision that would invalidate a
bilateral aviation safety agreement with the European Union (EU),
threatening safety cooperation with Europe and potentially
jeopardizing thousands of US jobs across the country.
