At the time we put this report together, the Solar Impulse 2 had said goodbye to the Silicon Valley and was headed for Phoenix Arizona. By the time you view our report, the aircraft is probably safe and sound at the Phoenix Goodyear Airport, and the crew is planning for the next leg of their flight as they cross the United States headed for New York. Piloted once again by Andre Borschberg, the solar impulse two continues its epic flight around the world that began in March 2015. SpaceX has said that its Red Dragon spacecraft combined with the Falcon Heavy Rocket can make it to Mars…and beyond. According to nasaspaceflight.com, which is not a NASA website, SpaceX has entered into an agreement with NASA for a Mars mission. It’s reported the spacecraft, known as the Red Dragon, is a variation of the SpaceX’s Dragon 2

The Bombardier C-Series aircraft program received a major boost when Delta Airlines executed a firm agreement for the purchase of seventy five CS100 aircraft with an option for an additional fifty CS100’s. Delta may elect to convert a number of these aircraft into CS300’s at a later date. Based on the list price of the CS100 aircraft, the firm order is valued at approximately $5.6 billion. Even though Tecnam’s P 2010 four-place aircraft only recently received its EASA and FAA type certification, Tecnam has now received approval for level I major changes that will enhance the aircraft. The revision validates the use of the GFC 700 autopilot, fully integrated with the G1000 glass flight deck. The GFC 700 is an AHRS-based automatic flight control system that provides flight director, autopilot, and, automatic and manual electric trim capabilit
