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. This step followed a 10 November vote in the European Parliament, wh

ANN FAQ: Aero-Twitters Offer Instant Alerts For Breaking News

Say Hello To Aero-Twitter!

Twitter is designed to work on a mobile phone as well as on a computer (and can be accessed via your IM clients). All Twitter messages (called "Tweets", naturally) are limited to 140 characters, so each message can be sent as a single SMS alert. Brevity is a virtue when using Twitter, since you can't say much in 140 characters (then again, the world would probably be a better place if people spent less time reading their cell-phones, anyway).

Airborne 12.02.16: Stratos 714 1st Flt, TFR Politics, Airbus Job Cuts

Also: Female Skydive Record, ANN November Efforts, Dream Chaser, SecTrans Reax, FAA SAFO, Able Flight, Airline Group Grounded

On November 21, the Stratos 714 very light jet took to the sky. The Stratos 714 was devised as a response to the lower performance single engine VLJs proposed about a decade ago which include the D-Jet, the Cirrus Jet, the Piper Jet, and some others. 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
