Airborne 08.26.16: Citation Longitude Update, Falcon 9 Display, N Shore Heli Rte

Also: Aerosim Scholarship, Santa Monica Nonsense, Marine One, UAV Developer Kit, FAA Penalty, F-35 Weapons Test, Coastal Helicopters

The Cessna Citation Longitude moves closer to its first flight as initial ground engine tests on its Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines have been completed. This paves the way for the prototype aircraft to take its first flight in the coming weeks. The engine tests verified the functionality of the engine start, fuel system and auto-throttle as well as interfaces with the avionics, electrical and hydraulic systems. Elon Musk has made good on his promise to memorialize the first recovery of a Falcon 9 booster by having the rocket placed on permanent display outside the company's California headquarters. The booster was placed upright outside the building over the weekend. The booster was recovered at Cape Canaveral on December 21, 2015, afte

It was only last week that we reported about the first flight of the Airlander-10 Hybrid Air Vehicle.

In a statement posted on its website, Hybrid Air Vehicles said that the aircraft undertook its second test flight on Wednesday and flew for 100 minutes, completing all the planned tasks before returning to Cardington to land. According to the statement from the company, the Airlander experienced a heavy, nose first, landing and the front of the flight deck has sustained some damage which is currently being assessed.

Also: Mini-Drone, Avilution, Narita Tower, US/Mexico Av-Agreement, UK Helipads Too Small, FAA Employee Busted, Proba-3

If it was a secret, it isn’t now, as a few images of Northrop Grumman's offering to replace the Air Force’s T-38 supersonic jet trainer have appeared on the Internet as the plane conducted high-speed taxi tests last week at Mojave Airport in California. The aircraft was built by Scaled Composites under contract with Northrop Grumman. FAA records indicate it is powered by a single F404-GE-102D engine, also known as the Model 400. The High Sky Wing of the Commemorative Air Force in Midland, Texas plans to unveil a refurbished Grumman F-14A Tomcat at its CAF Airsho this weekend. The airframe is notable as being the first F-14A to shoot down another aircraft in combat. On August 19, 1981, Commander Henry Kleemann and Lieutenant David Venlet of VF-41 flew th

Airborne 08.23.16: Santa Monica Fights On, ISS Readies, ICAO Flight Plans

Also: ANN Is Hiring!, Aero-Calendar, UAV v Helo, AIA Briefs Clinton, First LM-100J, Teamsters, Smalltrack

A resolution has been considered by the Santa Monica City Council would make it a policy of the city to close the airport to aviation uses "as soon as legally permitted", with a goal of ending aviation operations there by 2018. The resolution is a complex document that reviews the past history of the airport and the original purpose of the land upon which the airport resides. It refers to an original commitment to the FAA to maintain the airport in operation for 30 years as a result of federal money infused into the airport. According to the City Council math, that commitment to support the airport ends in 2018. Last Friday, space station Expedition 48 Commander, Jeff Williams, and, Flight Engineer Kate Rubins, concluded their 6-hour spacewalk to install the first of two intern
