Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (11.23.14)

"Reaching this stage that we call ATLO is a critical milestone. This is a very satisfying point of the mission as we transition from many teams working on their individual elements to integrating these elements into a functioning system. The subsystems are coming from all over the globe, and the ATLO team works to integrate them into the flight vehicle. We will then move rapidly to rigorous testing when the spacecraft has been assembled, and then to the launch preparations." Source: InSight Project Manager Tom Hoffman at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, commenting as NASA's InSight mission begins the assembly, test and launch operations (ATLO) phase of its development, on track for a March 2016 launch to Mars.

In the three-month period of July, through September 2014, total worldwide business and general aviation avionics sales amounted to more than $614 million. The figure represented a 5 percent decrease in sales compared to the third-quarter 2013 amount of more than $646 million.

Airborne 11.19.14: FAA v Pirker Update, F-35C Night Traps, G650ER Delivers

Also: EAA’s Eric Fatla, Legend Cubs Honor Veterans, EAA Hall Of Fame, AAA Record Breakers, AMA Responds to AP

Welcome to the first Airborne to be webcast in our Fourth year of production. That’s right, the first Airborne was webcast on November 18th of 2011... and we haven’t looked back since. Even better, this fourth year of Airborne promises to be the most amazing yet... and we’ll tell you why in just a few more days. The NTSB has ruled that any UAV, regardless of size, is an aircraft and falls under FAA regulations. This ruling relates to the case of Raphael Pirker and his flight of a small UAV over the University of Virginia Campus in 2011. The F-35C Lightning II carrier variant Joint Strike Fighter conducted its first carrier-based night flight operations aboard an aircraft carrier off the coast of San Diego last week. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!

Airborne 11.17.14: Jabiru Problem Reported, ANOTHER Civvy Harrier, Orion Arrives

Also: Indoor Skydiving??!!, Fk12 Comet, Philae Bounces, Canada Works With UAVs

The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority has just issued a consultation draft of the operating limitations to be placed on aircraft fitted with engines manufactured by Jabiru Aircraft. CASA is responding to a high, and increasing, rate of engine failures among aircraft that are powered by engines manufactured by, or under license from, Jabiru Aircraft. Former U.S. Marines test pilot Art Nalls, who has been the only civilian pilot and owner of a BAE Harrier, has announced the acquisition of a second Harrier. It’s a rare two-place T Mk 8 that will be used for flight training and air shows when it becomes airworthy in about a year. NASA’s new Orion spacecraft now is at launch pad 37 sitting atop the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket in preparation for its first trip to space on December 4th. Orion will
